This page is dedicated to documenting my travels to Japan.
If you have arrived at this page you were given my card with this special link. Thank you very much for taking the time to check me out.

Update Feb 24, 2019: Wow, its been a while since I've made any updates. Well, I'm in Japan. I've been here since Feb 19th. I got here around 5pm locat time and left canada Feb 18th at 1:35pm. It was a 12 hour flight but the time difference of +14 hrs turned it into a 26 hour trek up over the arctic and back down to Japan. What a weird flight path, but I got here relatively quick. Its been an eventful few days.
On the 19th I arrived, got my JR pass, took the monorail to Tokyo station. Walked around and saw a few places to eat, but i was not nearly confident enough to approach any of them; I wanted starbucks. So after wandering both sides of the station, I jumped back on the JR rail to Shinagawa. The lights and signs right outside of the station were pretty attractive so I walked around and this is when I first discovered what all the small alley-ways had to offer. Again, not confident to go inside. I also had my backpack, my laptop bag and a bag from roots with my shoes and underwear that was tearing at the seams from stuffing tea bags into it from the Maple leaf lounge in Toronto (Oh yeah, I guess that was part of the journey, too,eh? I'll get to that later...) So there I was, completely burnt out and I had only arrived in Shinagawa. Found a starbucks and sat down with the short espresso, although I ordered it long, wasnt going to complain. After doing a couple loops of the same side of the station I decided to head to where I was staying in Yokohama. Off I went, got a Suica card for the Keikyu Main Line, cause my stop was at Koganecho. I think I got off at Yokohama station from the JR line from Shinagawa and took the Keikyu line from there. Memory is already fuzzy but I think it only costed 134En. Got to the part of town I was staying in and wandered around in the dark for a few hours, then to my bed and passed out like a sack of peeled bananas. Next morning I was up early and trekked to Sakuragicho station for Starbucks. \.. TBC
Update Feb 3, 2019: I'm writing this on Feb 3rd, just 2 weeks before I take off. I am still getting ready and trying to pack light and think simple. I just bought myself a new Midi controller to compose music with on the go, Akai mpk mini MK2 Special Edition
