So much has happened in the past month! First off, I am now living in Tokyo! I am here to do a few things: I will be interning with two industrial design firms over the course of the next few months. I have already gotten started at one last week, by the name of Nosigner (http://www.nosigner.com/). My advisor from Takumi Juku back in Takayama has retired from the school and will also relocate to Tokyo soon. He has a new job repairing furniture at the Meiji Shrine, which is the most famous shrine in Tokyo. I will be spending some time there with him. I will also be visiting the studios and workshops of many designers in and around the city.
I found an apartment in Shinjuku, right in the heart of the city! I am living in a cozy (tiny) 15 square meter place, with a balcony!
Palazetto Waseda 303
Shinjuku-ku, 96-2 Bentencho
Speaking of which, the first day I got into town, I bought a new bike! It's a compact folding bike, though I haven't found a realistic reason or situation to fold it up yet...
Also, I fully intend to start diligently keeping up with my blog again! I missed it! So stay tuned!
