Team Global Meetup 2016: Tokyo Edition

This week, my team at Automattic had a meetup in… Tokyo! πŸ—ΌπŸŽŒ I was so waiting for this to happen, and finally… my five teammates and the CFO all made it here.

(Last time was in Copenhagen, Denmark – March 2015)

One thing that didn’t go as planned was that I got a cold during the week πŸ˜“ But luckily I was able to join back with the team after seeing my doctor.

On Wednesday, we took a stroll around Shinjuku, Harajuku, and Shibuya. It was a beautiful sunny day. We could see Mt. Fuji from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building Observatory.

We also got to see some plum and early-blossoming cherry flowers in Shinjuku Gyoen Park.

The last day was a combination of a productive morning clearing out a good number of todos & unresolved issues, 1-on-1 meeting with Alex, then a tasty dinner.

Even though it doesn’t feel like I only meet them (at most) twice a year because we work together every day online, it’s always nice to meet in person and say “Kanpai!” 🍻

  1. I miss Tokyo! Looks like you all had fun. πŸ™‚

    1. You’ll have to come back again πŸ˜€ Staying together in an Airbnb was pretty nice I think!
