Kau sembunyikan rasa cintaku
Di balik topeng persahabatanmu yang palsu
Kau jadikan aku kekasih bayangan
Untuk menemani saat kau merasa sepi
Bertahun lamanya kujalani kisah cinta sendiri (Kekasih Bayangan - Cakra Khan)
Dear Japan, we need to talk.
Things didn’t go quite as planned.
I was not supposed to instantly feel like I always lived here.
I had no plan heading there but yet visited 5 cities and did an undeniable effort not to burn this credit card (will not forget about you, Jingumae).
I’ve been tasting one of the best cuisine I had to try so far, been drinking so many exquisite alcohols, been hypnotized by the most amazing city views, been spending priceless days laughing (and walking way too much) with a hell of a partner in crime (@julesmv)...
I also retrieved my heart that night in Shinjuku, but left part of it a morning at this crosswalk; a fortunate encounter.
Leaving shattered but I know I have some unfinished businesses here.
Until next time, 日本. 💛
