Graffiti by a train bridge at Tokyo’s Yurakucho station. According to my GPS step tracker, I’ve walked/meandered/backtracked/wandered roughly 253 miles/407 kilometers (and the scale says I’ve lost 8.2 lbs) during a month-long walk across Tokyo, from the western Tama River to the eastern Edo River, photographing the world’s most populated city. I’ll be back in September to do it all over again. Thank you Tokyo. 🙇🏼‍♂️ Thank you @kanakobb. On assignment for @natgeo.
