Bike Tokyo (film)

Ben, Nozomi and I rented bikes and rode around the city with L. Ploy and Marissa!

We rented from Tokyo Rent a Bike, which is on the top floor of this building in Naka-meguro and has a great view and is where I took this photo. I’m not really sure how to explain but it captures almost exactly my feeling of Tokyo – like the camera sucked it out of me when I took the photo, haha. Vast, melancholy, beautiful..Anyway, we were aiming to circle the ENTIRE Yamanote line, stopping to take a picture in front of every station – but in 4 hours we only made it to 9 out of 29 stops – Ebisu to Ikebukuro. We all had other evening plans so we headed straight back on Meiji Dori (street) and made the return trip in an hour and a half or so.

Marissa & her cool bike. Her shirt says "Ride it like you stole it."

I'm pretty sure halfway through this ride Nozomi thought we were trying to kill her. Hahaha especially with L. Ploy shooting through traffic like a crazy person.

I was brave! I liked his style so I asked for a picture. I think I feel embolded enough to start doing this more often now.

Good thing L is so cute - they fixed her bike even though they were busy.
