My Tokyo

As most of you know, Tokyo is a finalist to host the 2016 Olympics. Of course, I'm a little biased, but I think Tokyo would be the most awesome choice!! I love Tokyo so much, it's easily my most favorite city in the world. I've travelled alot and have visited and loved lots of cities: NYC, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Rome......but none of them compare to Tokyo! My heart is already breaking at the thought of having to leave in another 1.5yrs.

A million thanks to
Tokyo Five for posting this beautiful video on his blog, which then led me to a ton of other great Tokyo videos. I'm not ashamed to say I got a little misty-eyed watching this one! I still can't believe I actually LIVE HERE! I hope you enjoy these little glimpses of my Tokyo!

Another video I found. I love this one, very dramatic, and some really beautiful shots of Tokyo:

Ohhh, I agree, I think Tokyo would be a perfect place for the Olympics for 2016. : ) I wonder who else is trying to get it for 2016 besides Tokyo.

The other finalists are Chicago, Rio and Madrid. The U.S. news has been going on and on about awesome the Tokyo tour was on Friday, and how dull the Chicago tour was in comparison! 7 years is plenty of time for me to save up for an awesome trip back to Japan! I really hope Tokyo gets it!
