All Rights Reserved ©


Life has been easy for Zoe. She names it, she gets it. Clothes? Done. Shoes? Done. But things that matter like freedom? Nah-uh. So when she sees an opportunity to leave the country and fly to Japan as an exchange student, she instantly grabs it, leaving her best friend and maybe-boyfriend behind. And then on her first day, Kaito, a Filipino-Japanese student, comes into Zoe's life and offers his friendship. He lives in the building next to hers, and despite having opposite personalities, they just click. Small talks turn into deeper conversations, and under the beautiful cherry blossom trees along the streets of Mitaka, Kaito and Zoe find themselves sharing a connection they've never had with anyone else.

Author’s Notes

Tags: Coming of Age, Romance, Young/New Adult, Slow Burn -- (Don't say I didn’t warn you! The series has two books because falling in love doesn't happen instantly for most of us. If you like wholesome and slow budding romance, this is for you.)

Hi, reader! Thanks for dropping by!

I started the first book of Tokyo series back in 2019, but because I was busy, I couldn’t finish it. And then 2020 happened. It was a time when I wanted to escape. To recall the beautiful memories I made when I, myself, was an exchange student at the University of Tokyo in 2017.

This is a work of fiction. But many of the characters (I wouldn’t say who) were named after the people I became friends with. I wanted to make sure I wouldn’t forget the things I did--the places I’ve visited.

It was a life-changing experience I’ve wanted to preserve for as long as I’m alive.

I hope you enjoy this work as much as I enjoyed writing it!
