Trip log: Tokyo, Japan – November 2013

I never kept a backup of my blog posts (until now), so I’m only going by my vague recollection of events.

I went to Tokyo, Japan back in November 2013 to visit our company’s headquarters to assist in meeting translations.
There, I met with members of our development teams, enjoyed eateries I would’ve never experienced in the States, and took some photos to prove I was there. 🙂

Below are some of my most memorable shots:

A tiny room, but the bed was comfy.

I had sushi on the first night I was there.

The view from the office was spectacular, too.
