Tokyo Fitness in Roppongi Hills and Blaine will either be teaching English, working in design or being a househusband (his first choice). Tokyo has a population of 13 million and the greater Tokyo area has a population of 35 million. I’ve wanted to live in a big city since studying abroad in Buenos Aires. And now we’re ready to join the masses, get shoved into the subway by white gloved men and spend hours getting lost in the shops of Harajuku. We still have to find an apartment (hopefully larger than a closet). We’ll keep you posted on the Tokyo apartment search. We’re keeping our expectations low, knowing that we’re moving to the overcrowded, high-priced metropolis. The Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Tokyo as the most expensive city in the world 15 out of the past 21 years. At least when we travel outside of Japan we’ll feel like kings (or normal people). Tokyo has twice as many fortune five-hundred companies and twice as many Michelin star restaurants as the next closest city, Paris. We may have to consider sampling Jiro’s sushi, although it may cost us our rent. Luckily, Tokyo is vast enough to offer more than just first class activities. We plan on exploring the cities extensive parks and finding our oasis in the maze of concrete. Tokyo has thousands of museums and with the Grutt pass we can pay 2000 yen ($21.57) for two months of free and discounted entries. We’ll also likely have to grab a cocktail at the bar from Lost in Translation, New York Bar, at the Park Hyatt (especially now that we’ve finally seen the movie). We would love to have visitors. We have no idea if we’ll be able to fit more than two humans in our closet apartment (time to hit up IKEA). But we’ll let you know. Stay tuned for our adventures in Tokyo!
