Finally back in Tokyo !!

This almost 3 week long trip has felt like half of a forever. As if I was traveling 4 months instead of 3 weeks. So happy to come back to civilisation although the beaches and warm weather was amazing.

In Tokyo I didn't really have much spare time except work, on Saturday we went to a cool roof-top BBQ party. Also signed up for 3 months of intensive Japanese classes. It will be same set as in Beijing all those years ago. Start every day with 3 hours of learning. As if settling down in Tokyo + work would not keep me busy enough :) Looking forward to speak one more language, it's easier to learn a new language when you know what to focus on. For example, question words and measure words are the most important ones to start with. Then you can describe when, how, where, what etc. After that just add new vocabulary...And also need to learn how to write Japanese too. 2016 will be a busy busy year. But really, it's so much nicer to live here than China.

Hello new home! Looks like it's going to be a fine day 
Takanawa area where we have our office 
BioGaia Tokyo 
Got this cup from the Navy Commander and put it in good use!
Many big companies like Microsoft have their HQ in Shinagawa
Every night I went running around the Shinagawa area and found this and that. This restaurant looks like something from the past.
Also found Baker Street not far from the Shinagwa station, could be cool to come here for a beer

Can also run by the water in just a bit north from Shinagawa. Absolutely empty of people and beautiful reflections 

 Looks like an old lighthouse but it used to be the fire department
Friday = Pizza day with Bae
 Koyasan temple
 Yum yum Sapporo Beer Station. They got food & beer. Will be perfect in the summer to sit outside here
Our rooftop BBQ
Shibuya crossing, busy no matter the time of the day

Found this Clash Of Clans add in the subway, they are putting a lot of marketing in Japan
 All those dogs! And everyone has a different outfit.
Ordered some HOT Ramen, and I mean HOT. Burned my lips, the red stuff is pure chili. Was only able to eat the noodles and meat but soup was nope nope nope. Last time I ordered the most spicy they have on the menu
Back to school!
 This noodles advertisement cracked me up
Time to head back to Helsinki! Feels like last time was forever ago. And the best time of the year to be back is soon here! No more winter darkness or -10 degree
Majestic Mount Fuji on this clear day
This 11 hour plane ride was one of the slowest I have ever been on. When your too tired to focus on movies or get any work done but also too much awake to get any sleep...Just sit in half zombie mode and somhow wait that the next 5 hours will be quick. They were quick, at all. Was more than happy to get off this flight.
