happy monthiversary to me!

Side note: it’s always bothered me when people say “one month anniversary” or whatever other than year because anniversary implies “year”. So instead, I made up a word. Yeah…I make no sense I know.

Moving on. As of today, I have been in Tokyo for an entire month. Yes. An entire month! How did that happen? Seriously.

Anyway, I felt like I needed to post something in celebration, so I’m going to post photos and a little video from Saturday. No food (gross or otherwise). Just some photos from my visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine and park on Saturday. Since I already posted about the things that have surprised me, there’s not a lot to add as a “wow, it’s been a month” post…so, just enjoy the photos and very short video.

Random dance festival we came across

Couldn’t resist capturing these dancers posing

Meiji Jingu Shrine gate

This is where you wash your hands before entering the actual shrine. 

You scoop the water out with the wooden ladles. Such a beautiful ritual.

I was loving the sunlight.

My Tokyo version of Poets’ Walk in Central Park.
And just in case you’re curious about where I work, this is the lobby. I kind of love it!

You are having some incredible experiences over there. Thanks for sharing them, I thoroughly enjoy reading them! Take care! Happy monthiversary!!! Treat yourself to something fabulous—-like maybe something from those two floors of shopping you discovered in your work building. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Take Care.
