Hi Everyone! Happy to see you all through this website! =) Are you enjoying our column and Tokyo information so far? I am working as editor here. I luv to travel abroad and going to new places, and that will enlarge my field of vision! I also luv to listen to music, and I am learning Chinese in this moment! =) What I like about Japan is the four seasons is very clear. Furthermore, the more you will know about Japan, I think you may discover more interesting things and how different each prefectures are. While Tokyo has new trend things, but in another hands you can see old shopping street and town like Asakusa. I assume that everytime you come to Tokyo you can find and experience new things!!
