I Have Touched The Face Of God

Tokyo is a city of many faces to me. The face of a clean and beautifully maintained city, the face of thousands of years of glorious and (sometimes) deeply painful heritage, a face of artistic magnificence and culture, a face of efficiency, a face of hard work, a face of courtesy, a face of rascism, a face of money, a face of a silent middle-class, a face of misconceptions cleared, a face of sin-city at Roppongi, a face of new hobbies like pool, swimming, party-nights, a face of extreme hard work, a face of hard-earned respect.

Tokyo is a city of gross urbanization that drives me nuts at times and plain rural beauty that takes my breath away and leaves me speechless.

This blog is for the display of the rural beauty that appealed to me :) It brings to mind one of my favourite poems. A picture is worth a thousand words! Please feast your eyes.
