See you Tokyo!
Touching down, I cannot help but be filled with nostalgia for the fond memories of spending the happiest days of my childhood in Nakanobu. Happens every single time. Maybe, it’s an over-romanticisation of days past. Then again, going around feels like tracing the back of my hand.
What I can’t help but go on and on about is that the Japanese don’t seem to mind taking the long route, just to meet you halfway. Theirs is a kindness that seems to be increasingly rare nowadays. Maybe, it comes from their unique worldview; maybe, it’s just a cultural thing. Soaking it all up, you’re filled with a warm, fuzzy feeling that makes you want to believe in people, in strangers even.
Coming to Tokyo almost feels like coming home. Whenever I fly out, I never bid it “Sayonara! さよなら !” It has been and will be “Ja ne! じゃね”
