I stayed in a Buddhist temple in Mount Koya. It was authentic and peaceful. It snowed overnight, so I could see a beautiful snow-covered garden in the morning.

I went to a punk show — C.J. Ramone's. The kids here go a lot crazier than back home. They have a lot more energy and really get into it completely.

I like going to cosplay events to make new friends. I've been doing cosplay for four years now. It makes me feel free when I dress up as different characters.

I ate some tiny live fish while I was in Kyoto. I just swallowed them. I could feel them going down my throat and into my stomach.

I've only been here for a few days, but I really like Harajuku. It's very different to India. They're crazy about fashion here, dressing up in different costumes.

I love cruising around Tokyo, especially Shinjuku and Harajuku. You see things you wouldn't see at home. Being among people and soaking up the atmosphere is great.
