So we had this 6 day trip in japan and it’s our first time there. We went to a lot of places and it’s kinda hard to describe Tokyo, furthermore Japan in a paragraph or two. But then, this is a travel blog post so i’ll make it random and personal and interesting for you.
Of those 6 days stay, and with the last day just to wake up and go to the airport, we went to very much all places that we can think of is the best places that we can be at in Tokyo. Those would be the view point of Mount Fuji, some Parks with Cherry Blossoms, Harajuku’s fashion stated street, Tsukiji Market and it’s fresh fish, Akihabara and it’s pop culture of and all things Anime, Shinjuku and the buildings of shops, Shibuya and the hustle and bustle at it’s crossing, Ginza’s luxurious area, and some Temples here and there. We, the family, totally agree that in those 6 days, it wasn’t enough to roam around all of the sights of tokyo, and we also wished that we could spend more days and visit other cities and prefectures as well like Osaka and Nagoya and everything else, basicaly all of Tokyo.
I like how they’re well mannered, how clean it is from the streets to the estableshments to our place we stayed, surprised that they really have expensive stuff considering that a japanese yen is worth less than a philippine peso but nonetheless every purchase is up to the highest standards.
I love the freshness of the sushi, the cheaper than usual gunpla and enormous amount of anime merchandize, how their public transportation was well planned and efficient, and how convenient everything was because you could actually live near a convenience store and basically buy all necessities like toiletries to pre-cooked meals and have it all in good quality.
But one thing that struck me is that even though they still held on to traditions and cultures of being a Japanese, they still keep innovating and trying their best to keep up the fast paced change of the world. It may not be the case for the whole country but in Tokyo, they really aim for world class standards.
And with this simple post of mine, here’s some shots of our stay in Tokyo.
Also stay tuned for a vlog about it. For now, here’s a snippet. A walk through Shibuya Crossing, one of the most craziest places to be on.
We’ll definitely come back.
