So after recently rewatching Tsuki ga Kirei (As The Moon, So Beautiful), I knew I had to go to Kawagoe, where it takes place. It’s a show that has a special place in my heart, and it’s storyline is beautifuly simple and heartwarming. It’s one of my favourites because it’s very realistic in how it presents the characters, and how the story progresses. Unlike a lot of other romance based series that feature some clueless dude surrounded by girls, a childhood friend character, a tsundere character, an obscene amount of obvious fanservice, the list goes on. This one’s got none of that.
Anyway, back on track. Re-iterating the title, Kawagoe is a great place. When I arrived at Chabudai, a cafe and guest house, the owner and staff all greeted me and were very kind. Walking around for the past few days, people seem a lot looser, happier and friendly in general (than people in Tokyo). Maybe it’s some sort of curse with big cities, where most people are frigid and cold, and are too busy working and commuting (as is the meme with London).
