Hi, I’m Yu Ming and I’m a new blogger for the Tokyo edition of Metblogs. I’ll be posting on what’s going on in Tokyo, interesting places to visit, and anything quirky in that Japanese way all of us Japanophiles love.
Even though I’ve been here for two years now, I still get a bit starry-eyed when I see the William Gibson-esque skyscrapers right next to ancient Zen temples. Japan is a living, breathing oxymoron that’s a fascinating creature to watch whom no one can quite figure out.
I’m familiar with the city and can get around without a glitch, but it is a huge metropolis and I’ve still got loads to discover. So come with me and follow my exploration of this adopted home of mine and hope you enjoy the ride. Feel free to give me feedback or ask me a question about Japan.
