Memories came back when I boarded the Toyoko line train at Shibuya. It seemed that the 5 years past was just yesterday as I got off at Toritsu Daigaku station. The last time I came to this station in 2004, it was in a different life, not the life of a kitchen cockroach like the present. I was living at a friend’s place about 5 mins walk from the station, and it sure brings back memories.
About 10 mins from Toritsu Daigaku is Tadashi Yanagi’s shop (Exit station, turn left and walk to the main road, turn left and continue walking, the shop is on the opposite side of the road). Walking past his shop, you can take a small peek into the kitchen through a small window and a strong yearning in my heart began. One day, I will work in this city.
