Over the years I’ve spent a fair amount of time in Tokyo. Whilst working for Sony I visited frequently, but as with all business travel my free time was limited. I managed to squeeze a quick trip to Harajuku or Shinjuku but I never really felt like I had time to devote to the city. I also bored my wife with hundreds of stories of amazing food, crowded transport and strange stores, but until this year we never managed to visit together. En route to Thailand a few weeks ago we decided to spend three days in Tokyo, something I recommend you have the opportunity. It’s such a unique place – a beautiful mix of history, modernity and it’s own individual character. The opportunity to finally wander the streets (and have a knife made by Masumoto-san) was one which I’ll remember forever. The movie above captures some of the feel for the place, I hope you enjoy it.
