• Exploring Sangenjaya from Persona 5

    I found out that the locations used in Persona 5 where based on real life places in Tokyo. So of course, I needed to explore it. It was great, the vibe I got from the area was copied perfectly in the game. I really felt like I was there.

    The double level highway was crazy in person. Because Japan is smart, the space below it is used for Motorcycle parking and some car parking too in same places.

    Akihabara Day 1 | Persona launch event

    I just happened to be in Akihabara on the right day at the right time. Apparently they where doing a launch event for the new Persona Dancing video games… So I got to play them before anyone.. HAHAHA

    Waiting in line… it was for awhile… I was the only foreigner in the line.

    More Persona stuff

    Persona Stuff that I would want to buy if they where selling it

    So… no gameplay… because i was traveling by myself… and it was too much fun. It is a great fun game to play with others… I didn’t know much Japanese but it was still easy to play.

    Trip to Tokyo Teleport Station

    After visiting Tokyo Disney and met an internet friend for the first time, I took a subway ride a few stops away to tokyo teleport.

    Mainly for shots from anime shows that I have scene.

    Cars of Japan

    When i got to Akiba (Akihabara), There where crazy amounts of nice cars and ones with Anime painted on them. One of my dreams was to see them because they don’t exist where I’m from.
