A Year in an Instant


Day 77

Instant photo for Day 77 of “A Year in an Instant” by Nuno Coelho Santos


I’m at the Starbucks in Sangenjaya. The usual place to start the day. I've set my goals and I'm ready to start work.


I went to the gym after lunch and met up with Marina at the Tsutaya in Daikan-yama. Daikan-yama has an appeal from the moment you step out of the train at the station. This is a designer-friendly group. Nice shops and cafés. I wanted to visit almost every single place. We had coffee in Tsutaya. We worked for a few hours. She looks nice. Everyone in here looks well groomed. Before the end of the day we walked in the area. We visited Saturdays NYC, a lifestyle brand that sells coffee and clothing at their Daikan-yama store. We walked past Ivy Place. She showed me Log Road, a beautiful wooden path surrounded by wooden and concrete buildings. I spotted Grigio’s Italian Restaurant and Spring Valley Brewery during this safari. And overall most of our time was spent chatting and gazing. We ended the day with a donut at the Camden’s Blue Bar Donuts before walking back to Shibuya.


I’m playing with the idea of not speaking English or Portuguese or any language apart from Japanese in 2016.
