The sun was out. There air is as crisp as it get in a Tokyo winter, and I went out for a pedal powered stroll. The neighborhood has seemed so quiet since the new year, and before the schools start up again. I stopped on a bridge to just look over the place that I call home.
I think of myself as a shadow that just blends into the surroundings, even though in reality, I stick out like the 6ft gaijin I am. Which is the true version? I am not sure. I just wanted to pause and look over the streets where I step in Minami Kasai, in Edogawa ward of Tokyo, Japan.
