Wandering Around Tokyo

Long time no see… would be a bit of an understatement. I would make some sort of an excuse, but I don’t really have one, so let’s just get on with it!

Recently I went to Tokyo for the first time in almost a year. For those of you who don’t know (which is basically anyone reading this, let’s be real), I live in Fukui which is in central Japan. It takes about eight hours to get to Tokyo by bus (half that by shinkansen, if you have the money to spare), so naturally I find myself in Osaka and Kyoto far more often than the Easter Capital. I just don’t have all that much reason to go all the way to Tokyo 99% of the time.

So, clearly this trip was the rare, one percent.

A group of friends I met when I was on exchange decided we were well past due for a reunion. With me here in Fukui, another north in Yamagata, and the third living just south of Tokyo, it was basically a given that it would be the setting for our gathering. I couldn’t think of a better reason to jump on the bus.

Knowing I’d have a lot of time to kill on the morning of my arrival, I decided that I would take my trusty DSLR so I could take some pictures of the big city while I waited for my friends to get in to town. Admittedly I was hoping that I would snap more pictures even after meeting up with them, but clearly that didn’t happen because I was too busy enjoying the company of my long-lost friends.

Also, it was raining, so we ended up staying in most of the time. Figures.

Anyway, here are some of the photos I managed to snap in Tokyo!
