What a view from the Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba. Worth the walk.
Nevermind the Fujifilm building, I liked the tug boats the most.
Around Tsukiji Market, Tokyo.
The sushi was sooo good…The salmon sashimi was melting in my mouth, doing a little dance around my tastebuds. Om nom nommm…
I just started pointing at things, making sure they were seafood and just putting it in my mouth. “What’s that..dunno..let’s eat it.” was said many times that morning.
Spider vs photographer in Roponggi, Tokyo.
That’s all for me this week. I’ll be sitting for my orthopedics exam this Friday, then a week off that will be spent camping in a national park near Kuching and delivering cutie patootie babies into the world (a prerequisite of 15 babies so that I can graduate. Let’s hope it was mating season 9 months ago!). Have a good week! Much love.
I was standing in front of the gate when a very curious Japanese lady decided to ask me where I’m from and was shocked and slightly amazed that I was traveling alone, armed with only 5 Japanese phrases (smiling and gesturing usually does the trick). She “adopted” me and took me to have traditional sweets with her :) She really made my day!
Walking the Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba.
I had mixed feelings about the artificial island of Odaiba, it was strange how everything was so perfect. It made me want to run around and vandalize something. But also, it was great how everything was perfect and ideal, even the fruits look like they were sent from the heavens!
Meiji Jingu Temple, Shibuya.
There in the temple packed with tourists, I saw a lady personifying Japan. The whole situation was an amazing contradiction. A space between the crowds, the old syncing in with the new.
The streets of Tokyo at night.
I had to hold the camera in the air while I stood precariously at the edge of a balcony and hold my breath hoping to be perfectly still to take this. A for effort haha. Ah, I learnt the the wonderful uses of a tripod that night.
