What is this? Now that I have a visa, and health insurance, and can legally stay here without worries for a whole year – and it does not even feel like such a big achievement. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am very happy that everything turned out so well, and that I now have more time and possibilities in Japan, but…

Right now, all I can sa hamster running in a wheelee is the next hurdle, and the next hurdle, and then the one beyond it. All those little things to do, that each by themselves are no big goals, nothing to get excited about. It’s not that I’m not satisfied, but I realize that I still stand at the beginning. May this be simply a sign of getting old? That one has seen so much that one has a farther vision and knows what things will be coming further down the road?

Well, further down my road right now is a short visit to Tokyo to jump over one of the hurdles mentioned above. I’ll go tomorrow and will spend a night. I wonder if you can go up the skytree at night?
