After having an amazing dinner at a Turkish Restaurant in the Ginza district (seriously good dinner ha!), I met a new friend who is in Tokyo for the week with a construction company. We ended up chatting for hours and hitting up a few spots together. Awesome guy and it was fun talking about life, business, and the future. I can’t wait to catch up in a few years and see if we were right.
Today, at the recommendation of my friend Mina, I visited the famous Hama-rikyu Gardens which was only a short walk from
my hotel. The beautiful gardens and grounds were the family garden of Tokugawa Shogun from the early 1600’s. There are a ton of beautiful flowers, bridges, Shrine ruins, and even a tea house! I took off my shoes and joined a bunch of people for cold matcha tea and a wagashi Japanese treat. Just a nice day walking around the garden listening to some relaxing music. Only a few days left here! I’m already sad to be leaving all my new friends.
