A new life in the land of the Rising Sun

After spending a week with my Mom-and-Dad-in-law in Sendai, my wife and I arrived safely in Tokyo and started settling in to our temporary home. We're currently living in an apartment that my company set up for us in Ningyōchō (人形町), which is in Tokyo's Chūo ward (中央区), just a brisk walk away from my office. We'll be here for the next 2 months or so, or until we're able to find a permanent home of our own.

Tomorrow (Monday) is a public holiday in Japan - National Foundation Day (建国記念の日) which is essentially the equivalent of Independence Day in the US. Since I'm off tomorrow, Tuesday is my first day of work. Even though I've been to my company's Tokyo office on assignment before, and will basically be doing the same work I did in Chicago, I can't help but feel a bit nervous.

Here are some photos of where we're living right now.
