After a month or so of minimal site activity while I was in the motherland, I am now in Japan again, meaning Tokyo Times will return to its regular routine. So it’s back to walking all those labyrinth-like streets. Back to almost always carrying a camera. And back to photographing the city’s much-touted fashionable shops and frenetic pace of life.
From today, I shall be leaving these incredibly hot and humid shores for the much cooler climes of not so sunny Manchester. A month long trip that will result in Tokyo Times seeing a similar slow down. So, instead of the usual 4 or 5 posts a week, there’ll be a far more summery 2 — on Mondays and Thursdays — until I return towards the end of August.
A relatively long period of time which may result in me missing a few things, but one of them certainly won’t be this sensation.
After about six weeks of not so regular updates as I soaked up the rain in not so sunny Manchester, Tokyo Times will now return to normal. My arrival back in Japan meaning that the relaxed and summery two posts a week will now revert to the more customary four or five.
News that admittedly doesn’t warrant being blasted from the rooftops. Or even trumpeted round town. But it may, at a push, merit a brief parp in the park.
Tomorrow, I shall be leaving these fair isles for the far cooler, if not exactly fairer, ones of home. A journey that will see me knee deep in Guinness, pies and the odd plate of fish and chips for the best part of 6 weeks.
But that’s not to say that the site will simply cease to function like the fella below. No, far from it. There’ll just be something of a slowdown that’s all. So, instead of the usual 4 or 5 posts a week, there’ll be a more relaxed and suitably summery 2. These will more than likely be posted on Mondays and Thursdays (although there will be one this Friday), but to be sure of new content to see, subscribing to the Tokyo Times RSS Feed could well be the way to go. Or alternatively, links to new posts will also appear on my Twitter page.
After gallivanting around Great Britain for five weeks — which left Tokyo Times noticeably only plodding along with nowhere near the normal amount of new material — I’m now back in Japan, so, fingers crossed and photo opportunities permitting, things should very quickly return to normal.
Particularly so in fact should the sun continue to shine, and, perhaps more importantly, I can somehow prise my bicycle out of its prison.
Continuing what has become a really rather enjoyable routine, I shall once again be leaving Japan for the summer, returning home for five weeks to a land where the national football team is now worse than the nation’s infamous teeth.
However, that’s not to say that whilst I’m away Tokyo Times will stagnate like my country’s national sport, as the site will continue to be updated — just at a slightly slower pace that’s all; the current five posts a week being reduced to a much more manageable three.
And to be sure there is new content to see, subscribing to the Tokyo Times RSS feed could well be the way to go, although if such a system doesn’t suit you, the updates will more than likely be on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
So, with that said, and my suitcase all packed, it’s just a case of hoping that little Abbey will get me to the airport before my aeroplane leaves.
Or even comes back again.
