    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    After the triple disaster in Japan (Earthquake,Tsunami and meltdown scare in Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant), Tokyo (capital and busiest city in Japan) is getting back to normal. Even with the irregularities of Train schedule and operations, some companies and jobs have started. Gradually, people are beginning to live life normally like they used to be even though there`s still some concern in Fukushima, radiation, affected tap water (some vegetables too) and aftershocks.


    As School year-ends, I even saw girls everywhere wearing `kimono` and suits for men as graduation code. That`s what they wear here during graduation but mostly suits. Teenagers/Youth are back with their stylish and fashionable attire (mostly seen in Harajuku, Shinjuku and Shibuya). Then, more trains are operation now but still conserving electricty. Even if many shops (mostly famous brands) are still closed, people are still whining and  enjoying themselves around Tokyo. But honestly, It`s not that the same yet. Fortunately, life here is getting back to normal inspite of the tragedy and the consequences it had left Japan.


    We`re all hoping for the best. So in the lighter side, these Tokyo photos prove that Japan is starting be alive and normal again.
