life in Japan vol. 2


tastes like…

a surprise inside

nutty matcha in the morning

ingredients of autumn with little maple leaves to prove it

years of hard work to get it just right



smells like…

French-inspired pastry shops 

sea air mixed with a misty rain 

a waft of curry and tempura from an open door





sounds like…


intercoms filled with a calm Japanese voice 

current American pop music and classic jazz 

Stevie Wonder, The Beatles

hushed voices - except for a few teenagers and 

older women giggling with their girlfriends on the train

chanting by high priests 

a large low drum beat 

the rhythm of my bike chain 



feels like…


a structured and beautiful society right down to the pavers

overcoming small obstacles and looking back with a smile

my son’s little warm hand holding mine as the crowd starts to carry us away
