In every dark alleyway there’s a new world to discover in Tokyo filled with tiny izakayas, strangely named bars and vending machines. It’s possible to never go down the same street twice or ever become bored of new and interesting things to see and do. The hidden danger is that when you leave, it will make other places in the world seem suddenly dull, lacklustre and boring. As it indeed did when we returned to Auckland. The world is indeed a small place and filled with endless delights.

    1. Yeah I know right! I noticed that too. There was astore with all the outdoor camping stuff in it in Tokyo and it was about 10 floors high. It was amazing, had everything in it. Every store was like that. I think for crowded overpopulated places where land is at a premium like Auckland they could really do something similar.

      1. Funny thing is though….coming in to Auckland from the airport from any other country…you’d never ever guess land was at a premium. There’s heaps of vacant land there. It feels quite rural lol

  1. Yes that is so true! It’s weird and I wondered the same thing. A lot of empty fields in South Auckland near Manukau. I wonder who owns them and if they are crown land?
