I’m quickly falling in love with Tokyo. It is by far one of the cleanest and safest cities I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Just to give you an idea of what I mean by safe, one of my favourite things to do here is to go jogging at night through the city…by myself and (as an aside) in the rain. It’s exhilarating! Everyone seems so respectful to, and considerate towards, one another. The first time I went on one of these ‘jogging sight-seeing missions’ I got distracted by a shop and got lost. It felt a little troublesome because everything was beginning to look the same, few people speak enough English to be of help, and I had no money or phone on me, but it still felt too safe to really worry. I will never forget this comfortable feelings in one of the most populous metropolitan centers of the world.
These pictures were taken on the third day in Tokyo when we finally sat down to do some readings for class.
