We landed.i was caught off guard at how dark it already was when we touched down at 5:30 pm. The sun had already set and the evening had arrived. I met up with a good friend By the name of Hiroyuki. A few years ago he had stayed a little at my family's place before we headed off to the mountains.
This time around he was meeting me at the airport and him and his family were kind enough to offer me a place to stay during my travels in Japan. We drove back to his residence from Narita airport and then visited a local izakaya for some food and drinks. One of the things that I very quickly have come to love is the quiet streets at night. It is very much like something out of the movies and I will definitely spend a few late nights exploring some of them with my camera.
More to come soon!
