Tokyo RisingPosted: May 10, 2012
The day is finally here! I am a few hours away from departing for my heavily anticipated trip to Tokyo, or as I like to call it – the future. I’ve been dreaming about this day for years now – the food, the fashion, the fanatically fast pace. Finally, my community college courses in Japanese are about to pay off. Konichiwa! Konbanwa! Kanpai! Kudasai!
In preparation for my trip I’ve been doing my mandatory research consisting of best shopping spots (Shibuya – here I come!) and best eats (thank you Anthony Bourdain). But this great little doc featuring Pharrell Williams on Tokyo post 3/11 earthquake has me most excited about simply observing the people and getting a glimpse of their culture. Also, Tripple Nipples look insane live.
Sayonara peeps! See you in a few weeks!
