If I’m asked what made me most happy last year, my answer would definitely be Japan. Specifically, Tokyo. Looking at the pictures back while playing some J-pop track on iTunes makes me a smile, but it also makes me long for the place even more. No place has left me that much of an impact.
A friend once told me that if I plan to go on a holiday, go elsewhere. Why go to the same place over and over again? But the thing is, I think I’ve really found my happy place. I don’t mind going there every year. If I’m given a choice to go somewhere, I’d still pick Japan.
Why? Possibly it’s because it’s a lively city. Possibly because I generally like Japanese and how civil they are. Possibly because I was surrounded with people I get along with so well. Possibly because I get to properly let loose. Possibly because of the food. Possibly the combination of everything mentioned.
Just thinking about it makes me happy 🙂
