  • Meet Krishna (@pterofractal), a Software Development Engineer in the Tokyo, Japan office.  He will be taking over @InsideAmazon for the next few weeks to showcase his experience at Amazon, and life in Tokyo!
Hey! I'm Krishna. A Canadian who lived in Seattle briefly and ended up in Tokyo somehow. I joined Amazon about 6 years ago and have worked with some incredible people. I spend my free time reading or hunting down cafes and restaurants to try out. Hope you like the photos. よろしくお願いします (nice to meet you). Here is a picture of Shinkyo Bridge, a famous bridge in Nikko. My friend and I came up to Nikko to visit a Japanese hot spring and also enjoy the scenery.

  • Travel and yoga - both are therapeutic. I love to travel a lot, especially impromptu road trips with random stops to gape at and bow to the beauty of the world we live in! Far from civilization and the hustle and bustle of life, makes you wonder how tiny a speck you are in this grand universe. This picture was taken during one of our road trips to Utah, covering 5 national parks, innumerous canyons and gorges, and surreal beauty.
Thank you Saranya (@bleumayil) for sharing your life inside and outside of Amazon!
