I didn’t think I would write anything about this trip soon, and as you can see, it is [not] happening. Although I’ve been posting to Instagram like crazy, the purpose of this trip was not actually taking pictures. Okay, I am being serious right now. When packing my daypack and discovering that without water it already went beyond 7kg (a critical mass-dash-threshold of always-with-me weight), I even had to sacrifice one of the cameras for a lighter trip. And you know what? It was worth it. Still, I’ve got more than 3k pictures from my camera and phone combined. Still, I will spend ages developing them, but you know what? The coolest part of the travelling was being there. Walking along Meguro river listening to my favourite Hisaishi tunes. Meeting my old friends and getting to know strangers. Playing games at SEGA arcades. Looking for that “One” Gacha-Gacha hoping to find it somewhere. Devouring all the food I can lay my hands on. All those sweets at 7-Eleven… :D. Riding shinkansen until I feel it’s too much (although, “too much” didn’t happen, can you believe it?). Drinking shochu until I feel like helicopter took off with my head leaving the body behind. All that, and more. So much more than I ever had in my life, packed into those wonderful seventeen days in Japan, all the way from Tokyo to Kagoshima. Was it enough? Oh, I don’t think so. Will I go again? I think so. Can it ever go better? Even if not, I don’t really care. I feel I’m in love with this country. And yes, I know, I am looking only at it’s better sides, but then – it is showing them, so no blaming me.
This time, pictures will go in order. And will be developed in order. It will take a lot of time, but here it goes. I am in no hurry, just have to finish until the next trip 😉 Stay tuned!
