I spent the past few days in Tokyo for the PHP Conference. This was my first trip to Japan – and I fell in love. Not only was Tokyo vibrant + full of culture, but the people were also pretty awesome. In my years of traveling around this globe, I don’t think I’ve ever come across such a collective group of kind and respectful citizens. Even as an outsider (getting by with nods + my limited vocabulary of 5 or so words)… I felt a warm welcome.
I snapped this photo yesterday as a spectator of a mikoshi parade – everything about it makes me smile.
