Tokyo

I learned to love getting lost in Tokyo. A super metropolis, super city, super time. Two weeks here wasn’t enough, but filled with karaoke, new friends and old friends visiting, endless shopping (which I had been strict about up til this point), izakayas, new on top of old, the best street snacks. A lifetime in this place probably wouldn’t be enough.

Ishinomaki

Slipped through the mountains on a sleeper bus to the other side of the country and ended up in charming Ishinomaki. Recovering from the tsunami disaster, but full of heart. The friendliest, sweetest people I met in Japan.
