2018 was turning into a pretty rough year, so I took a last-minute trip to Tokyo to more or less run away from my problems. This was my first fully solo trip. It made sense in my mind that it’d be Japan.

I roamed Tokyo by myself, chatted up random barflies in Golden Gai (thank you Google Translate), took day-trips to Kamakura and Kawagoe, tried to get better at using my 50mm lens, and even made a new friend through a mutual friend who thought I’d like a drinking buddy while I was in Tokyo (I did).
