This trip was my third to Japan but my first time making it the the capital. Tokyo was an amazing experience. We visited Shibuya, the fashion district and home to the busiest cross walk in the word. We went to Akihabara, the electronics and anime district. We made it to Shinjuku and Harajuku. We went into Kabukicho, the red light district, and found one of the last Panty Vending Machines.
We went to watch a Cirque de Soleil show at Disneyland, Tokyo. The show was amazing and told a really interesting story. Or I think it did from what I could tell, it was in Japanese after all.
Tokyo can be as expensive or as cheap as you want it to be. Public transportation is ridiculously reliable and on time, as well as inexpensive. You can eat for cheap with the local business men or you can hit up the Michlen Starred restaurants.
Tokyo has multiple temples and shrines. They have towers and gardens. There is something for everyone in the city of Tokyo.
We took to the bullet train up from Nagoya. The trip takes about an hour and a half from Nagoya. The trains are not only fast but amazingly quiet compared to other trains.
I’ll talk more about Tokyo when I talk about my time living and working in Tokyo.
