Having spent my first week in Japan running about and taking in the city, I've slowed down the past few days to catch up on the G20 news ( my city is a mess ) and some much needed Zzz's. This may have been partially due to Tereza's absence, as she is in Hawaii for a booking. I'm going to be sad to see her leave next week. Before her departure, though, we took a quick day trip to Yoyogi Park. It's quite the social atmosphere; we were invited to play an Asian spin on the game 'what time is it Mr Wolf' and were all too eager to join. I love that the Japanese embrace youth, I feel like Tokyo is a huge, impeccably clean playground. Yoyogi is like the manifestation of a childhood daydream... Harijuku girls blowing bubbles, full grown adults hula-hooping, musicians galore and the warmest of smiles from people with dogs strolling (or skateboarding?) alongside.
