I went back to Japan for the second time in February of this year. It was winter so it was a much different experience from my Autumn trip two years ago.
This time, I was less aggressive about finding all the tourists sites and took it easy. I was also not 100% feeling great.
Being sick forced me to slow down my trip and do minimal activities. It forced me to walk around in our neighborhood and observe the daily life in Tokyo.
It was very interesting to see how everyone goes about their daily routine. It's pretty much the same as Toronto.
We walked around a park and saw all the little kids with their Mom's. I noticed that they don't use strollers like we do here. Most kids were walking or on their baby carriers. I love that! Great for exercise!
And at night, it's just like any normal neighborhood. People are coming home from a long day at work to their families.
