When your wife asks if you’d like to join her on a work flight to Nagoya, even if only for 24 hours, you go.

Anyone who even pretends to know anything about me knows that I absolutely adore spending time in Japan. It’s just such a nice place that is so different to the hustle & bustle that is life in Bangkok.

For me, Japan is a captivating and beautiful place. It is equal parts mad cyber-robotic modernism (yes, I just made that up) and ‘uber’ traditionalism. It is this very clash of styles that makes it such an aesthetically pleasing place. Especially as someone who likes to take the occasional photograph.

Add to that the fact that I love gaming, robots, tea maids and general eating and you might start to see the appeal.

Even though we were only there for 24 hours, and even though all I really got to shoot was IG & FB pictures for my wife, I will always say yes to any excuse for a trip to Japan. Especially when Yamachan chicken and cold beer is on the menu.

Below are a few quick edits of images I took during our latest trip to Nagoya.
