Attempting to try to bring you more life from Tokyo as it happens using Instagram. All these are posted live from my iPhone to my Facebook, Twitter and now Tumblr. This batch of photos actually taken over 2 days.

I *usually* try to post Instagram photos with English and Japanese text so will leave it as is - I dont always say the same thing in Japanese as it may not be relevant for my Japanese followers - but most of the time it is a direct translation of what I'm saying in English which may be useful for those studying Japanese.

Starting with this evenings office - this is what's behind me. 今晩のオフィス。僕の後ろ。
