I recently took a solo trip to Tokyo and it was absolutely fantastic! On the penultimate day of my trip I went up to the Tokyo Tower and stayed there.
I sat there facing the sun on the first bright day in several. I was staring at the sun and the sun at me. We both kept it up for a while but eventually the sun went down! Our staring contest was accompanied by some breathtaking views of the city.
All this while I had my favorite music playing on my iTunes. I let the sunlight wash over me, the music wash over me. It was so calming that I think my resting heart rate was down to a 30 at the time.
To paraphrase Murakami, ‘it was all like a dream and I was living in it’!!
