Hello, Tokyo.

DSC_0317On our way back from Auckland we stopped over in Tokyo for a 20 hour layover. I was struck with a nasty bout of food poisoning so unfortunately I only got to experience the Haneda airport (which was lovely, actually) but Nick was able to spend a few hours in the city and captured some images for me. The one place I wanted to go to was the Harajuku District but Nick told me no one was out and about so that makes me feel a little better. Anyway, I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos with you.

I would love to be able to go back and see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Even though I was forced to stay in the airport I was able to make the most of it. When I finally started to feel better, I shopped around and took in everything that I could. Haneda has this amazing balcony overlooking Tokyo. When the sun went down I bundled up and took a look at the city covered in lights. I was sad I couldn’t be in the middle of it all but these pictures make me feel like I got to be there.
