There’s something particularly special about a big city at night – especially in the summer. It’s like the whole earth is on a pinwheel where the characters change from day to night. The sun goes away and the moon comes out, along with the people who have been hiding inside to escape the heat.
I did the same thing last week. For a change, as the sun went down, I was getting ready to go. I went out to see the city with no agenda other than to have no agenda.
I thought the pictures and atmosphere were particularly wonderful.
For some reason, when I think of Japan I always thought that things would be small, that I’d be ducking under doorways or constantly having to watch my head. I have no idea why. It’s definitely not the case though. Everything’s gigantic.
The city really captured me that night. Some pictures stuck in my mind instead of the memory card of my camera. I walked past more than one restaurant or cafe I’d like to revisit. But the walk was amazing, better than staying at home and some small part of me wanted company to share it with. Since I’ve been so busy with work I’ve barely had the time to make friends. So I think that’s what I’ll be working on next. But in the meantime, a few more of these small adventures will definitely be happening!
