Like many of you around the world, my life currently revolves around working from home, followed by weekends of not doing much besides cooking, relaxing, and walking around the neighbourhood. While I obviously miss little things like just hopping on a train, or eating out for lunch, I must admit that I am enjoying this period of seclusion. I feel I have more time to exercise and generally look after myself, while also realising how much a typical 9-5 actually takes it out of me. I also realise, however, that Tokyo’s ‘light lockdown’ means I am much more fortunate than others who have pretty much been bound to their houses. There is no such enforcement here, and we are free to pretty much do what we want – the Japanese government (perhaps unwisely?) relying on each individual to take responsibility for their own actions. And so, with ‘quiet’ and ‘colour’ seeming to be the overarching theme, here is what my Tokyo looked like in April.
