While I have a lot to post about, I’m going to start with the highlight of my trip, so, have an album mostly consisting of my trip to japan!

a few musings. Tokyo has some interesting architecture. It encompasses the
60’s worldview of what a futuristic city must look like, but all the futuristic greeble festooning the buildings, the antennae and satellite dishes, or the odd horizontal windmill can now mostly be found only on downmarket structure. Fancy new buildings don’t sport these growths, at least not obviously.

Things in Japan that I wish we had in Vancouver. Real konbini, with their delicious food and useful services. An extensive and reliable train system. A large enough populace to support superniche locales like Akihabara or Harajuku.
