I met up with an old friend that I met in LA. Saori moved back to Japan a few years back, but because she lives in Shizuoka, we haven't had to chance to meet up since she's been back so we decided to meet up for some dinner and drinks this weekend. Since she needed to take the bullet train back home we decided to meet up in Shinagawa. Turns out Japan is in Christmas mode at this time and the entire area was lit up and decorated like Christmas. Bunch of couples holdin hands and walkin around...felt awkward..
