Tokyo, Japan. The ideal backdrop for a #postapocalyptic novel #postapo #lastmanonearth #twojourneys

Arguably, Tokyo is the largest city in the world, with 36 million inhabitants (daytime numbers, 22 million at night). It is impressive how this city runs so smoothly with that many inhabitants. What would happen should it come to a standstill? The opening chapters of Two Journeys describe how this mega city comes to a shocking standstill.

Below some pictures that I took in Tokyo during past visits and that have inspired me to place my postapocalyptic work in Japan.

Highrises in Tokyo. The sheer bulk of these buildings is overwhelming.

Alan, the hero of Two Journeys visits Tokyo around Christmas time.Should an epidemic of the proportions described in Two Journeys strike, the lights (above) would extinguish rapidly, the trains such as the one below (famously overfilled) would halt.
