Witness My Life In The Heart Of Tokyo
My first month in Tokyo was an absolute bliss, living among the friendliest people in the world in Tokyo's Sangubashi area where I took most of these photos and videos.
Tokyo lifestyle is a compilation of my first month in Tokyo. I moved at the end of July for 3 full months to the city of my dreams.
My trip to Tokyo was such a success in 2007 thus I had to go again. I rented an apartment in Sangubashi next to Yoyogi Park in central Tokyo which was very close to my favorite districts of Shinjuku (business district) and Shibuya (fashion district).
The apartment was provided by Sakura House, a fantastic property rental company for foreigners in Tokyo. Everyday was a delight waking up and knowing I was living in Tokyo, nothing on this planet could replace that feeling.
The apartment was very small, the washroom was made all out of plastic (almost like a complete unit), there were shared wash/dryer facilities, free internet with the apartment, below was an Izakaya and across was a McDonald's, train station was a 2 minute walk, and delicious fresh Sushi was available at the Supermarket a few blocks away.
Sangubashi is a pretty rich area, many successful Japanese people live here and I am happy to have had the privilege to live among them.
The first month was very difficult in getting settled and getting used to actually living in Tokyo. I went to BIG CAMERA to purchase a wireless internet stick.
I had to fill out all the paperwork in Japanese which was a mental disaster and took forever to figure out. The internet stick gave me the ability to still do my daily work while traveling through Japan.
My best feeling was the moment the cab dropped me off in front of my new apartment at night after a long flight, train ride and obtaining the house key. I will never forget this moment, it was total bliss. I jumped immediately in the shower, ordered some ramen noodles and passed out in my comfy bed.
