TOKYO: Through my lens, is a visual documentary of my experiences in Tokyo, Japan. This video covers my 5 days and 4 nights of colorful discovery and adventure.
One of my favorite experiences while I was in NYC was skating at Wollman Rink. Wollman Rink (also called Trump Rink) in located in the middle of central Park. I haven’t ice skated for over 20yrs but what better time to try the sport again than in New York City during Christmas time. Below are some videos of my experiences on the ice.
A Suica card is a reload able smart card used as a fare card on rail lines in Japan. To purchase a new Suica, you will need ¥2000 (¥1,500 prepaid, ¥500 deposit). When you no longer need your Suica card, you can return at a JR East station or subway office.
The benefit to having this prepaid travel card is convenience. As a foreigner you may not want to carry around tons of loose change in your pocket or slow down the line counting yen at rail station restaurants. In the video above Yuta and Mihoko from Tokyo Daily Life will show you how to purchase a Suica card and some of its additional uses.
Hachiko is a famous statue of a dog who possessed legendary loyalty to his owner. It’s located at Shibuya station and is a great place to meet if you’re gathering with friends or a night out. Here’s part two of the Tokyo Daily Life video series where the founder of TDL tells me about the legend of Hachiko and why it’s a famous meeting place at Shibuya station.

During my stay in Japan I hooked up with Yuta Sakaguchi of Tokyo Daily Life. Tokyo Daily Life introduces attractive points of Japanese daily life to people all over the world! In this video Yuta (writer / creator) tells you all about what you’ll find their Facebook/Twitter/Instagram pages. This video is the first of four videos to be premiered on my blog featuring Tokyo Daily Life.
For those who follow me on closely know I am a huge fan of Japanese culture. There’s something about the bright lights, the business, and cultural differences that excite me. Today I will be traveling from Seattle to Tokyo for the second time and will be capturing the things I see through my new camera and lens.
Although I will be focusing on Tokyo I will be uploading videos on how to get around in Japan featuring tips and tricks. If you have any suggestions on things you would like me to cover let me know.
