Almost a year ago, I moved to Seoul with the wrong visa. I had to get out of the country to the nearest Korean embassy to change it, so I went to Tokyo.
There I met with Keita, a kind hearted, fluent in Mongolian Japanese young man. When I arrived I was late, completely soaked by a sudden rain that poured right after I arrived. He gave me warm Ramen, hosted me, showed me his city. It felt very special, to be there in Tokyo, not knowing if I could come back to Korea. We went to Harajuku, Shinjuku, Roppongi and other places, stealing some videos on the run. Herein the rather unstable footage and not perfect sound.
But I tried to retranscribe some of the feelings that Tokyo gave me the first time I visited it.
More might follow later.
