This paradise actually made me reconsider what I said about living in NYC, Tokyo offers anything from vending machines (that you can put in your house) to little brackets that stop your cupboard falling on you during an earthquake. The kindest people I've ever met were in Tokyo, except the lady at the ticket counter at Osaka who laughed at me when I told her I lost my "Japan Rail Pass" and only had 200 yen and a flight from Tokyo in 6 hours. 


Exploring sydney's frowned upon urban side came about when I saw people doing it overseas, I'd catch a bus to the city ever day after school for half a year with a 50mm trying to document  the urban side to Sydney.
