Distant ramblings from a tired traveler. Kyoto, Tokyo, and Bangkok. Three opposing, yet somehow strangely familiar cities. Tokyo is a swarming, evolving, techno-goliath. Businessmen fill backrooms smoking endless cigarettes, occasionally bursting out in laughter once the sake has set in. A group of friends confidently stride down the street in full robot cosplay gear. Every pebble, back road, and crack has been claimed and optimized. Somehow in this entire chaotic mess, they’ve managed to make trash extinct.
