beeezytravels: Fresh Tokyo Meet 2017
It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. I told myself I wanted to make it a goal in 2017 to start blogging again. Not just for the sake of posting on here but in hopes it would also push me to start shooting with my camera again. I was toying with the idea of trying the whole vlogging thing but I don’t think I’ll ever be comfortable being in front of the camera.
With that being said, I recently just got back from Japan, my first real vacation in maybe 7 years and my first time leaving the country since 1997 when I came to the mainland (United States, for you people not from Guam or Hawaii). It was also my first time in Japan in 20 years as well. Last time I was in Japan was in high school for the Far East Basketball Tournament. This time I was in Japan along with 30+ other people for 8 days as a part of the Dsport Magazine Tokyo Auto Salon Tour. I had been wanting to go on this tour for some time but this year my cousin finally convinced me to go (even though he ended up not going himself; more on that in another post).
I intend to do a legit recap of each day I was there along with videos and pictures but in the mean time, here’s a short video I took from the Fresh Tokyo Meet in Odaiba the night before Tokyo Auto Salon. We got there a little late and the cops had already began shutting it down. We were still able to see some cool cars though. Excuse my super fast panning. I was honestly overwhelmed just being there that I was just walking around pointing my phone everywhere. Plus, I didn’t want to get left behind and have to figure out how to get back to the hotel (it was just our second night there). I wish I had known we were going there after dinner otherwise I would have brought my DSLR or GoPro. Oh well, better than having no footage. Nothing fancy. Enjoy and stay tuned for more posts from my Japan trip coming soon.
