Finding Something?

See you Tokyo! (東京,じゃね!)

See you Tokyo!

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”

We know our feature had been brief, and you want more. Why not join us at Boring Tokyo in Imzy? Just enter your e-mail address, and we’ll send you an invite! We’ll see you there! あそこ,またね!

See you Tokyo!

      Out of the city. Maybe, where the sun, sea, and sky are? Where’d you want us to be next?
