I'm falling in love all over again ❤️ 🇯🇵☀️🍻
My childhood was filled with beer cans. I had a pretty mean collection. At first, it was just the basics, the Buds, Millers, Coors and Rolling Rocks but as my Dad saw my enthusiasm, he expanded my aluminum consciousness with exotic brands from around the globe. He traveled a lot for work. I would miss him while he was gone but also couldn't wait to see what cans he would bring home from a far-off land. Colorful labels with strange names came from Germany, Italy, Belgium, Denmark and Spain. Upon his return from Australia, he bequeathed a large blue Fosters fat boy. It was the coolest can I ever saw until he came back from Japan with a steel can emblazoned with a bursting red sun hovering over an ocean (and adorned with kanji I couldn't read).

This beer can was my first introduction to Japanese culture. I loved everything about it, most of all that it represented a magical, mystical place seemingly on another planet. It would be many years before I truly fell deeply in love with Japan and Japanese culture. 
As I've gotten older, I've grown to appreciate the little thing he did, have a beer in a foreign country, but how immensely amazing it actually was. He was missing me too and although he didn't say it in words, he said it in his actions. I was collecting his memories, both his fondness for travel, and his love for me.
Aside from Chicago, Tokyo is my favorite city in the world. I look forward to one day having an Asahi in the heart of Roppongi.
