Tokyo

Funny thing is — I worked in Tokyo for 10 years but I have never blogged about it. Well, I made a few Tokyo-related posts such as the Asakusa Samba Festival, Odaiba, and the Lolitas.

Tokyo holds a significant part of my life, career-wise. I already miss the rush hour, the sounds of train, the crowded station. My journey in Tokyo has ended. I have to start somewhere. Few weeks ago, I returned back to Tokyo to attend some personal matters, including a job interview. But it seems fate won’t allow me to work again Japan. 

Kindly watch the video below, how I spent a day in Tokyo. I used a cheap action camera as I found GoPro to be very expensive. Should you visit Tokyo one day, this could help you make your itinerary.

  9. Loved your Haiku and enjoyed the video. It was interesting to see I was amazed with the size of the cotton candy and the man with the sign "wil you marry me"
    In the netherlands you can also pull food from the wall but I haven't seen yet that you can order something through the computer. It looks just as busy as in the dutch cities something I couldn't get used to anymore.
