start of 2015 in tokyo
Hello, 2015

Another new year is already here! Although the air outside is cold and biting, I’m thankful that we’ve had quite a few sunny days so far. If it’s even possible, Tokyo has seemed both quieter than usual and bustling with year end and new year activity, with plenty of residents traveling out of the city to their hometowns for the holidays, and plenty other visitors spending their days off here. Trumpeting sales announcements and discount tags everywhere.

The afternoon sunlight beams clean and golden through the sharp air. The endless shadows of feet stampeding down the street in Omotesando. It’s time for a fresh start, time to put another year behind us and step forward into a new light.
