Although I did not follow any of the ideas I gave in my Tokyo Weekender article (sadly the zoo was a no-go), I had a lovely time indulging on chocolate, ice cream, and hot whiskey. I felt quite content with myself until it dawned on me that I maybe had eaten too much chocolate, and that it was ironic that other people were out following my ideas while I had chosen to spend my night with chocolate. I had a small moment of panic about it all, but I blame it on the whiskey.
I love living in Japan, and I'm probably the happiest I've ever been in my life, but it's not always as glamourous or easy as it looks. Yet it's all worth it, I'm head over heels in love with Japan to this day, and I'm still afraid I'll never be able to leave.
