Here is a quickly put-together post looking back on 2017 and how I’ve been trying to actually
live my life.
Starting off with the still amazing movie
Kimi no na wa / Your name by Makoto Shinkai. If I’m not mistaken, the first post I made in 2017 was about this movie. I still remember sitting in my seat whispering to myself ‘wow’ in the opening minutes of the movie. The artwork, the music.

Faiz messing around as we get ourselves some ice-cream in Yokohama.
Tokyo lighting up as it gets dark, as seen from Tokyo Skytree.
After 5 days of fruitless searching, a random detour into Ueno Park netted us this amazing sight. So many sakura.
When you first step out of Tokyo Skytree’s super-fast elevator, your eyes adjust to the light and this view just takes your breath away.
Sunset welcoming us home
Tsukiji’s sushi are worth queuing for.
Osanbashi International Cruise Terminal. An amazing place to get wedding photos.
Whoa~~ Little tots at Yokohama’s cup noodle museum.
Rawr! Idiot me ‘eating’ Tokyo Skytree as I recreate Attack on Jin.
Anywhere can be a playground for kids.
