First week back in Japan: summary
As Sunday draws to a close in Tokyo, so does our first week back. And what a week it’s been.

It’s amazing to be back, over the past 2 and a half years not a day has gone by where I haven’t remembered happily the last time I was here. The days have flown by, but when I think about everything we’ve fitted into the last week, I’m pretty stunned. Lots of shrine visits, seen the Gundam in Odaiba, plenty of shopping, miles of walking, gigs of photos and some fantastic(and affordable) meals out. The weather has been fantastic, much hotter than I’m used to though so that’s taken a bit of getting used to, the jetlag didn’t help either but that only hung around until Wednesday.

I have a huge backlog of posts to write, I’ve published a couple and have drafted bits and pieces while riding the Yamanote line home in the evenings, but the ideas just keep coming. I hate to think how many more I’ll have on my mental list by this time next week, provided I make it off Mt Fuji in one piece!

We’ve had a ridiculous amount of fun, but now it’s time to get down to business. Yesterday I lined up some teaching work, and today we sorted a shiny Ketai for Emma, I might get one too in due course.

Tomorrow is our last full day in Tokyo before heading up to Hakone, we’ll be taking it easy for the most part, our most important task being heading to the local ward office to register for our Gaijin cards. Everything’s coming together nicely :)

Week 1 – 10/10!
