After living here for four years, I think I know Tokyo pretty well. It's vast, but I try to get around to see it.

Yet when I met my friend MJ for lunch yesterday, it was in a completely new part of town for me. Bakuro-yokoyama is a quiet area with a mix of high-rise office buildings and tiny shops specialising in kimono and traditional Japanese fabrics. It's not a special or extraordinary neighborhood, which may be why I'd never been there.

The funny thing is, it's less than fifteen minutes away from my house. So much for knowing Tokyo...
