The end of a great year…

Day 58:

It’s the last day of the year! I’d have to say that this has been one of my best years on record. It was a year in which I finally realized the path I need to take. It was a year that really opened my eyes and allowed me to reach for my dreams. I still don’t know where I’ll end up, but at least I feel like I’m headed in the right direction. Thanks again for allowing me to share my experiences with you. 2010 can only get better!

Before I headed out to Shibuya, I needed to have my version of toshi-koshi soba–ramen. So I stopped at Taishoken in Eifukucho to fill up on a hot, steamy bowl that would take me into the new year.


This massive bowl of shoyu ramen with bits of yuzu was perfect for the occasion. It literally warmed my soul with its intense heat. I was now ready to make the crossover.


I finally got to Shibuya just minutes before countdown and quickly got sucked into the raucous crowd. I have no idea who this guy was, but since he jumped into the picture I’m giving him a cameo on my blog. I was clearly too sober to react in any other way. haha.


Minutes later we were all screaming and shouting while the police tried to maintain order. It was nothing like Times Square, but a good time nonetheless.


And then it was off to the clubs…

  1. Yuzu rind in ramen broth…how common is that? I'm intrigued… Either way, I'm definitely going to be tinkering around in my kitchen with “that” in the back of my mind. I mean I got my hands on Sudachi via my dad on a recent trip to Narita, but I'll be sure to pick up some yuzu on my next grocery trip!

    PS Nice open container policy you got there!

    Thanks for sharing…very enlightening!
