The Far East

I visited my cousin Troels and his girlfriend Kanae as well as my friend Rieko in Tokyo. The photos are mostly from my long walks crisscrossing the city by foot. On the first day I walked from Ikebukure to Shibuya, the second day I walked around Ueno and the last day I spent around Chioda and the central business district before heading up to Akihabara to see some Owls and then to Asakusa for a walk about.
