STREETS. Usually when I’m in a big city, one of my biggest fears is to get lost while exploring it. When you don’t know your way around you never know what could happen or where you could end up, but with Tokyo, it’s a different thing. I’ve never felt so secure in a city before, everyone is super kind and helpful even if they only know a couple of english words and the only thing I lost track of was time. Because believe me, there’s A LOT to see!
Tokyo is one of those cities where you walk and walk and walk until you can’t move anymore, and then you walk a little bit more. Around every corner is a new surprise, wether it may be an amazing hole-in-the-wall sushi place, an awesome purikura photobooth center, a group of people dressed up in fur costumes, an amazing $1 store filled to the max with anything hello kitty related you could possibly think of or the actual restaurant that inspired the famous fighting scene in Kill Bill (yep, just as awesome in real life). It’s the kind of place you can spend years and years exploring, and yet discover something new everyday. The longer time you spend in Tokyo, the more you fall in love with it and when I left, part of me stayed. Tokyo is a city that has to be experienced, but I tried my best to capture it’s charm in pictures. Enough talking, here’s the first part of my Tokyo photo diary!
