Eric and I have now been in Tokyo for almost two weeks, and I’m so behind on keeping everyone updated. I originally drafted this post after day four, but I’m just now getting around to posting it, so forgive me. In those first four days, we had a few moments of sensory overload, and many moments of confusion, amazement and wonder.
This place is weird. We’ve barely seen anything so far, and that is the synonymous conclusion we have come to; it is a very strange place. There are vending machines, animated characters, and cats everywhere, not to mention far too many options for what to eat or drink. Thankfully, strange and weird are not bad things in our book. We’re looking forward to the next few weeks in this country exploring much much more.
