When life gives you a chance to go back to the past, are you willing to take it? Some would say no to this, for they are already attached to the magic of the modern world. Others would definitely say yes, for the sake of adventure, knowledge or curiosity. But what if I told you that you can be in one place that can provide history and the present at the same time? What makes it more interesting is that you can also see a bit of the future in this place!
This month’s issue is your ticket to crossing the bridge offered by Tokyo. Unlike in some movies, there is no time machine here to take a glimpse of history as well as upcoming events ̶ just imagine three bridges to the past, present and future.
In seven years, the Summer Olympic Games 2020 will make history in Tokyo. Although it is still far, people are already looking forward to it, and possible athletes are already doing their best to practice and train themselves. Something to look for in the future!
On the other hand, feel the essence of the history by visiting old temples in Asakusa and mingle with other locals during festivals there. Trace back the past by walking around and examining historical places built years and years ago.
Go back to the modern world in a shorter period of time. In the morning, sunrise is beautiful in the Tokyo Bay. At night, well, no other places have more neon sign lights than in Tokyo District!
Tokyo is a place that chose to be traditional as they absorb the modernization of the world. You don’t have to wait for Olympics 2020 to witness its superb beauty! Stop looking at that painting of Mount Fuji with Sakura around. You can see them with your own eyes, or even climb on it. Now is the time to experience everything directly!
