My weekend in 20 words or less: an Ibaraki JET scavenger hunt, an OWL CAFE, Ichiran ramen, famous Tokyo temples, and a free LED light art exhibit.
When recounting stories in my writing, I tend to get caught up in the “journal details” — the twisty, lengthy descriptions of feelings or moments that either don’t need explaining or don’t translate well into words. And as a sort of “weekend” photographer (an amateur with an iPhone and a new place to explore), I find that photos can sometimes evoke understanding better than any length of text. So I’ll spare you a barrage of description. Photos are worth thousands of words, aren’t they? But just in case they didn’t make it clear: this weekend was amazing.
