This past weekend was the beginning of Chase’s Spring Break as well as the 2012 Roppongi Hills Art Festival. Even though the weather was a little sketchy it cleared up and it turned out to be very pleasant. I don’t know if it is a “big city” thing or a Tokyo thing, but I love the scale of everything. For a country full of small people and tiny portions, they LOVE big, explosive art.
Chase is out for the week. Tokyo’s foreigners have cleared out. TAC is very empty. I love it. After what I consider a busy travel winter season, Cliff and I decided to take it easy and stick around for Spring Break. I still feel like I haven’t quite gotten into a routine because of rehearsals and sickness. Today, Chase and I worked out upstairs. I couldn’t help feeling a little like Jillian Michaels from Biggest Loser. Not because my body at all resembles hers, but because of my yelling at Chase and the fear I saw in his eyes. Family Quality Time. Maybe I was just venting the feelings inside me since Chase has decided he wants to be a recorder artist. Not a recording artist. A recorder artist.
The other day I finally was able to take a photo of a business sign that has intrigued me since we arrived:
Every time I pass this sign, I try to figure it out and I just can’t. What blows me away on top of the obvious is on Floor 2, there’s an office for the International University of Japan. Let me know if you know what I’m missing. Maybe I need to stop in and get a new brain.
This week marks the beginning of Sakura no Hanami or the Cherry Blossom season. I will try to take some pictures for you all.
Until next time…
