No, a friend and I traveled to different cities over the three weeks. I was planning to try and go back through the JET program but unfortunately that never panned out I've heard many positive stories about home-stays though.
While I'm browsing your gallery, Tokyo appears to me as specially cut out for colorful night photos. And I'm starting to feel like visiting it. ^^ I don't know if that's beacuse of the city itself or the photographer's skill or both, but what I know is that this is really amazing shot!
