Mnem's Tokyo blog

Good morning Tokyo,

starting with a clear sky and mount Fuji rising from the concrete.

Just like last summer I'm staying in Japan for a couple of weeks. I'm working most of the time but in between appointments I try to enjoy Tokyo.

It's a good thing I love my job because for Valentine I had a long talk with my boss, who is also my best friend. It amazes that somehow I changed from having dreams and hopes about my future to being a 'grown' person. I never noticed growing up, but here I am, working, eating out and spending a lot of time in cabs just like real adults do.



Today I went for lunch in Crayon house, where they serve organic, macrobiotic and mostly vegetarian food in a big restaurant/bookshop. I love this place.

On my way back to the office I visited the local museum and saw some marvelous woodblock prints from Hiroshige and Hokusai. I especially loved the orchids.



I miss Yukipon. I couldn't explain to my colleagues why I am down, but my heart isn't here. I'm so happy to have a friend like her, I miss her terribly.

Seeing the woodvblock prints really shows us some of your influences!

What do you do? design?

:) my hands are itching to draw again when I see these prints.

I do lots of things, but I love illustrating the most.

Wow, that view really is a jutaposition of cold, hard-edged, man-made materials and the enduring grace of nature.
The restaurant and museum sound wonderful! In spite of all the work you have to do, I hope you'll be able to get out and enjoy more of the city. :)

Very true ^_^ I'll try to shift my work a bit and enjoy the city and every day life in Japan.

It seems that you are happy and sad at the same time - I hope that you are only saddened by beautiful things and enjoy staying in Tokyo. Wishing you all the best, in other words ♥

Thank you for the pics, I'll be nice if you'd find time to continue this blogging.

It's true I feel happy and sad, and perhaps a bit lonely too in this overwhelming city. Life seems to go very fast at any moment of the day and night and it makes me feel very small.

The blog is a nice way to keep track of my travels, and it keeps me close to friends, I like it very much.

I honestly love this travel entries you make, what an easy way for me to see things in Tokio without having to travel. I particularly loved the picture of the orchids, it has the same soft feel as your drawings.
Enjoy the rest of your trip and if you have more pics or experiences to share I'll be waiting on my corner of the world.

Ta!

Thank you, it's nice to take you along on my travels, it's sometimes a bit lonely on my own in Tokyo. Living apart on all these corners of the world and we still can spend time together in here :) yay lj!

Ah, I love to see Fuji-san when I'm in Tokyo, too. It's almost surreal, to see the mountain above those grey concrete buildings. :B

I miss Yukipon already, too. It felt like such a brief meet-up. :(
And I'm really sorry you couldn't come to the event... but anyway, I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying your work. I guess I'll E-mail you. :)

I'm sorry too, I'll be waiting for your email (I still need to check) ♥

Fuji is surreal, how could I have missed it before?
