Time To Go


Hi everyone! Ok, so the big news!

I couldn't think of a clever way to hint at it so I'm just going to say it...I'M MOVING!!!

I really can't believe it myself but as much as I adore this city...this seemed like the perfect time for a change. So after living in Tokorozawa for 7 years with my family, then another 4 years on my own...I'm moving into the city. And when I say "city," I mean "THE CITY" as in Japan's capital...Tokyo Metropolis!!!

I'm super excited, if you couldn't tell by all the exclamation marks! The move is in a couple of weeks so I've got a whole lot of packing to do...so I'm going to take a break from blogging for a bit. But I'm hoping to start another blog so I can learn and explore more about my new city and share it with you!

This will be my last post on Tokorozawa Daily Photo. I had a great time starting this blog and being a member of the CDP community. And through that I got to meet SO many interesting fellow bloggers who posted wonderful photos of places all around the world, which I've enjoyed immensely!

So I'd just like to say a big ole "Thank you!" to everyone...I'll see you soon!

Much Love,
Kaori

We sincerely hope you start a new blog in Tokyo. You've made MANY friends in the CDP community and we want you to stay in touch!

WoW, Kaori, that IS big news! I've so enjoyed your posts and look forward to seeing your new blog after you have settled into the big city. I know, having done it too often to count (and doing so myself later this year, but not out of the city), how much work a move involves, so I understand your taking a break. Hope it all goes smoothly for you. Thanks for your wonderful support on my blog and see you again soon.

Good luck with your move Kaori! We will miss you, but I do hope you come back with a new blog. I have so enjoyed your pictures and comments.

altadenahiker said...

See you there, then. Can't wait to have you show us around.

Kiki said...

Oh wow! Best of luck!

Halcyon said...

Good luck! I've got some similar news coming up too. :)

I'll be on the lookout for your new blog once you get settled in.

Good luck with your move, have enjoyed following your blog & look forward to seeing some of Tokyo!

Leena said...

Good luck with the move and new start; can not wait for your new blog!

Big news indeed, Kaori! Exciting to hear that you're moving into Tokyo - good luck! Ganbatte kudasai!
Genki de ne!

Which ward? Or which train line will you live along? I’m partial to Kichijoji (and the Inokashira Line) but most places in Kichijiji are either Musashino City or Mitaka City. Taito-ward is a bit too shitamachi for a young person and we don’t want you singing this song from experience.

Ginza is nice but why bother with an apartment when you can get such fine personal service here?

Shimokita looks like it might soon go through some major destructive changes.

But of course you have already decided. Wherever in Tokyo you have chosen will be rife with endless photo opportunities. But Tokyo! Who has time to pause to click a camera shutter? And won’t most of your photos look something like this?

Here’s wishing you a smooth move and a new life that that is copacetic.

I really enjoyed my time spent at this blog of yours. I’ll miss it terribly.

I have really enjoyed your blog-- your special perspective of a city you love. Thank you! I'm looking forward to seeing Tokyo through your eyes.

VP said...

This is wonderful, I'm sure this is a great move and hope to see you soon with a mint new blog discovering Tokyo together. Take your time, all the best from your friends in Tuscany!

T.A.M. said...

Oh so you're finally moving! That's so funny that both of posts for today are similar...yours is about moving, and has a picture of the sky...mine is of Gary,Indiana, all the steel mills there, and how I want to move from Chicago. haha. Can't wait to see Tokyo Daily Blog ;)

Becky said...

GAH! And I just recently discovered your lovely blog, too! Please post here when you've set up your new blog so I can find and follow you again. Cheers, friend...and blessings on your move and the future happiness it seems it will bring you.

Al said...

Congratulations on your move - I hope it goes smoothly. Please leave one more post here, so we can get directed to your new blog - I'm looking forward to exploring Tokyo with you!

Evelyn said...

My goodness! EXCITING news indeed. I have never been to Tokyo, but moving itself is exciting. All the best Kaori. I look forward to your new blog :).

T. Becque said...

How exciting and fun! I love change like that. Congratulations and enjoy! But, please take us with you when you're settled. Tokyo would be great to see through your eyes.

That is quite exciting! I wish you good luck in Tokyo!

Tall Gary said...

Since this is kind of the sunset of your Tokorozawa blog and because I have been enjoying playing “Sunset Glow” 「夕焼け小焼け」 I thought it might not be inappropriate to share it here.
