I was born and raised in Tokyo, but I don’t know much more about it than a well-informed visitor from outside of Tokyo. I never even went to the Tokyo Tower until I received this cover project. I never liked waiting in a long queue, and I discounted it by saying I could go there any time.

How about taking a leisurely walk in Ginza?
I’m Manfong. It’s a pleasure to meet you again. I’ve been learning Japanese since I was a university student. I went to Tokyo for my first time with my friend on a tour 8 years ago, the second time was with my colleague on a business trip, and after the third time, I could go there by myself. I don’t have any problem with either travelling or a business trip. I can speak Japanese, so I have confidence to do most things, but I still take care of trip preparation each time. I wonder if it’s because I’m a Virgo.
