"What you look forward to", or in this case what I also look fondly back on. Being in lockdown has me thinking about my year abroad in Tokyo a lot lately. Although I am not a city person, I really really miss being in Japan right now. One of my favorite things to do was to go on a walk with my friend after we were done studying, usually at 3am. The usually crowded, hot streets would be cooled off and empty and it was the perfect time to walk around and explore Tokyo. This scene was the route we walked often. We would always pass by the Square Ennix building on this walk.

Anyways I am very happy with how this turned out because it captures the feel of the memory. One thing to improve would be the perspective in some spots and add a few cars... but that's a project for another time.
