6:40 AM – I wake up in Tokyo. Amazing light comes through the windows and floods the room while I watch my friend Jin struggle to put on his sweater. Great morning.

8:20 AM – After taking a morning stroll through the residential area of Yoga, I unexpectedly hop onto an uncrowded subway. (Jin managed to put on his sweater earlier, by the way.)

10:34 AM – One quick breakfast later, I meet lovely Joanna and Monique of Champ Magazine at the Mori Art Museum to check out the opening of Takashi Murakami’s first major solo exhibition in Japan in 15 years. Murakami’s work aside, the view from the 53rd floor of the Mori tower is pretty spectacular.

12:05 PM – I explore the Nakameguro area which is beautiful and pretty calm for being in the middle of the largest city in the world. On my way I discover some hidden beauties.

6:45 PM – I head to dinner with Kento, Jin and Tagaya-san. Lovely conversations and amazing food alongside proper Japanese beer. After Japanese beer, the conversations get better and better.
