A Year in an Instant


Day 11

Instant photo for Day 11 of “A Year in an Instant” by Nuno Coelho Santos

I’m glad Win is visiting Tokyo this week. I haven’t stopped to think how I feel in Tokyo. Having a good old friend from my previous chapter helps me understand where I am at. This excess of freedom left me somewhat lost.

I met Win at the Hachikō square. Hachikō is a statue in the square outside Shibuya station, made in honour of the dog who waited for his owner every morning in that precise location. Hachikō continued going to the station for over nine years after the owner’s death. Locals started bringing Hachikō food and treats during its wait, and today the statue honours its loyalty to the owner.

Alex joined us at the square. So did Ayaka. And we all went to the izakaya Doma Doma (土間土間 渋谷).

The photo above is a portrait of Win at the Hachikō square.
