It's funny, when people find out that i go to Japan a lot say something like "Oh, you're so lucky, i wanna go there so bad", and they do say that a lot, i never understand why they wanna go there.
I've been there so many times, that by now i'm no longer a semi blind japanophile who thinks everything there is just soooo kawaiii!
I see the flaws and i see the dangers and i see how fucked up the country really is.
And trust me, it's really fucked up.
But i still can't wait to get back there.
For some reason Japan just feels like home to me.
It sounds like something everyone says after a really great vacation, but it's true.
If home is where you feel the most comfortable with who you are and your place in the world (as opposed to just being the place where you keep your crap), then Tokyo is home.
So, i get why i wanna go so bad, i'm just a little fuzzy on everyone else's reasons.
But i still recommend going, of course.
I'm probably gonna post more about Japan soon.
About things to do and my favorite places to shop, eat and stuff like that.
This is from 2007
Hata has booked our usual apartment for us, and i can't wait to see it (and smell it!) again.
It's actually a crappy, tiny apartment located right under some serious power lines, and with a water heater that's way too small for even one good shower.
Oh, and the shower is too small too.
Last time we moved the furniture around (not that there's a lot of that) so i'm curious to see if they kept it that way or moved it back.
I bet they moved it back, just because that's how it's supposed to be.
Anyway, i love that place and if i had a ton of money, that apartment would be the first thing i'd buy.
Ok, off to work.
Allan and Lucifer already left, i just decided to stay home and blog cause we're going to a show tonight and i don't know if i'll have time later.
