Tokyo is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever experienced. I can NOT get over how much nature there is everywhere despite it being such a huge city. Even when you’re in an area that is filled with sky scrapers, there is still so much green around.
The first picture in this post is a park outside of our Uniqlo company visit. There were so many beautiful trees, flowers, grass, and ponds- right outside of a corporate building! I cant imagine anything like this in Los Angeles. It was the most peaceful and zen place. I couldn’t believe it when we stumbled upon it.
The second picture is from a random Buddhist temple some of my friends and I found when we were just walking around the streets. We ventured down one sub street away from the main streets and stumbled upon this small temple/shrine area. It was so beautiful. We couldn’t believe that this was just a street down from such a main street area. A temple in the middle of a city? Again, a feature that makes Tokyo so much more different than Los Angeles.
Basically, Tokyo never fails to amaze me. I am a person that enjoys the city life but also loves nature and zen. Tokyo is the perfect balance for me and is easily my favorite place ever.
