Tokyo

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Tokyo is an amazing city. Have you ever been? I'd imagined it would all look like the Shinjuku district -- crowded, skyscrapers, traffic everywhere. But it's surprising what a lovely city it is, filled with so many different neighborhoods, incredible restaurants, small businesses, kind people, awesome fashion!, beautiful gardens, so many charming cafe-lined side streets. And gosh, we were so impressed by how clean and organized it is. Even when walking in the most crowded part of the city {to get to H&M, YAY!}, shoulder to shoulder for blocks, it felt polite. Manners in Japan are truly unlike anywhere else we've ever been.

My favorite part of Tokyo was the precious hours I had with Cam before saying goodbye again, sitting at a little outdoor cafe, drinking vino {are you surprised? (: }, talking and watching with our jaws on the floor at each car that drove past. Ferrari, BMW, Mercedes, Aston Martin, Ferrari, repeat.  You all know by now that we love traveling together, and though deep down we're not really city people {pretty please picture us on a vineyard one day raising a brood of kids and chickens and making wine} it's so much fun experiencing them. Tokyo is one of the best cities we've been to. If you've never been, I hope you get to see it someday!

  34. I'm a new fan to your blog...such beautiful pictures. I love everything Japanese, I took the language in school but sadly never made it to Japan (well except for a few hours in the airport on the way from Australia to the U.S). One day I'll visit it properly...until then, I'll just live through your blog :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, beautiful photos (as always) and you have inspired me to want to go here. I know China is such a hustling bustling place, I would love to see the peacefulness of Japan, Tokyo! And glad to see you enjoyed your time with Cam again :)
