This city may have all the hallmarks of of a feverish metropolis, what with its colossal skyscrapers, brilliant mutlicoloured (and often flashing) lights and subway trains bursting at the seams with people. Yet on the doorstep of all this hustle and bustle you are certain to find a temple, a place of quiet, of worship and meditation. Or you'll pass by adorable obachans in traditional dress, witness an old man grilling Japanese crackers over coal for sale at his market stall where the grainy black and white photo on display indicates that he's been doing the exact same thing for decades.
The polarities in this city are too numerous to count but everything just seems to fit... I'm so grateful to be in Tokyo and having Japan Wireless with me means that I'm able to navigate the feverish streets in Shinjuku, or the stillness at the Meji shrine with ease. If you're planning to visit Tokyo or Japan, a mobile router is invaluable to ensuring you don't get lost, or to understanding the symbolism behind a torii gate. For me it's so that I'm able to stay connected with my friends and family back home.
