While in Tokyo, I'm renting a room in the Nakano Ward, near the Nakano-Sakaue Metro station. My room on the third floor in the back affords me a view of the Shinjuku skyscrapers, and a nice breeze in the evenings. Off the main roads, the residential streets narrow to one-car lanes. Pedestrians and bicyclists populate the alleys, with an occasional motorcycle or car passing by.
I generally spend my mornings writing at home. In the afternoons I venture out for errands and exploration, followed by an evening of performances, lectures, or workshops, depending on the day.
