For a period of time, I did back to back visit to Asia with Japan being my third country. I signed up for a tour of Tokyo and failed to read the description properly and thought it was an escorted. When I arrived, I found out that it was an independent tour. What am I supposed to do? I hadn’t planned a thing and ontop of that I knew nothing about Tokyo.

In someways interNATionalcaty came to life. Below are five memorable things to do during your stay in Tokyo.

Senso-Ji in Asakusa Tokyo

“The Hōzōmon is the inner of two large entrance gates that ultimately leads to the Sensō-ji (the outer being the Kaminarimon) in Asakusa, Tokyo. A two-story gate (nijūmon), the Hōzōmon’s second story houses many of the Sensō-ji’s treasures. The first story houses two statues, three lanterns and two large sandals”
