Hello again! Well, this one is the second part of our virtual tour of Tokyo, Japan. I have just published the first one and shared ten pictures — those who are interested could see the previous post, the one right before this. So, again, I will not pretend as though I know enough to write about the city. And again, these photos are taken by a dear friend of mine. Since he graciously agreed to share, I will be posting them here for you all, as well.
They are all pictures of Tokyo — unedited, uncut, raw material showing the everyday lives of people, streets, and surely also touristic places. As for me, I really love seeing a foreign city through the eye of a visitor who is also interested in the city itself in its everyday conditions, rather than all made up unrealistic facades that are made popular. Yes, I understand there is a value and truth to that, as well, but it is not the truth — it is not the whole truth.
(That owl-like looking building over there — it is a police stations. Yes, a police station! I was pretty surprised, too.)
(Look at that boat on the river — looks like a freaking missile 😀 It would have been awesome to take a ride on it.)
(Streets of Tokyo, Japan — a corner (or, convenience) store )
(And yes, that is a real Sumo Wrestling match! I hear these guys are very respected in Japan. And if I am not wrong, you can be granted citizenship in Japan, as a foreigner, if you decide to become a sumo wrestler. Well, yea, you will have to put on a couple hundred pounds for that.)
Already, let me just shut up and let you guys enjoy the photos. I hope you will like your virtual tour of Tokyo through these photos as much as I did.
(Another shot of Tokyo skyline on a cloudy day — there was one more in the previous post.)
(Colorful entrance of a restaurant on the street — Tokyo, Japan)
(Strolling the streets of Tokyo — Everyday lives of Tokyonian people. Tokyonian? Is that a word? That’s how we should call them? Probably something like that. Anyways… Can’t be Tokyoer, right? Sorry, I digress, back to the pictures and our walk…)
(Whatever this tower is, my friend must have loved the view. He took lots of pictures of this tower. And I am picking that brings the patched, rough streets of Tokyo and the tower together)

(Alright! If you all are tired by now from walking around the city. Here is your room. Get some sleep! Is that one of his socks down the right corner? 😀 Sorry, I didn’t see that one, haha. Well, that’s fine. Stuff happens! )
