1 Month in Tokyo

Japan flag icon

Tokyo has it all, delicious food, kind people, incredible shopping and ultra fun parties. It is the city of my dreams in the East.

Back again in my favorite city on the planet. Tokyo has become a third home base for me after Amsterdam & Toronto. It has been 4 years since I have been back so it was good seeing all my friends in Tokyo again.

My flight from Seoul was very relaxing, people on Japan AirLines (JAL) are as cilivized as it can get, other airliners can take some notes from JAL in terms of customer service. Upon arrival at Haneda I grabbed a cab towards downtown Roppongi but requested a detour over the Rainbow Bridge.

I tried to attend as many events as I possibly could without causing too much damage to my body. I literally slept 4 hours per night since I was still working for a Canadian company on the Eastern Timezone so my job was pretty much a night shift.

I met up with one of my first Japanese friends who I met before my first flight to Tokyo. We had some incredible food across the Tokyo Metropolis Building in Shinjuku. She helped me purchase a bunch of event tickets because the online purchase websites are all in Japanese and my reading skills have become rusty over the years.

One of my objectives was to attend a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu concert w/ Yasutaka Nakata. They make some of the best music productions in my opinion. I was lucky enough to see them live at Studio Coast (Ageha) in Shinkiba. Some of their songs include:PonPonPonTsukematsukeruCandy Candy and the song used in my video: Ninjari Bang Bang.
