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”

Meiji Shrine

Meiji Shrine located in Shibuya, Tokyo, is the Shinto shrine that is dedicated to the “deified” spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken.”

Hamarikyu Gardens in Cho-Ku, Tokyo

Hamarikyu Gardens is a public park in Chūō, Tokyo which is located at the mouth of the Sumida River.

Eat and Eat lots of Sushi

I ventured outside my comfort zone and had a variety of sushi.

Watch the Samurai

This was so much fun and I even got to practice with him.

  1. I have never been to Tokyo, hopefully one day! The picture of you practicing with the Sumari is super cute! I also like those two story houses, the design is always so pretty.

  2. I have not been yet but I will be going in my world trip (probably end up there in September 2018 ish). I will definitely be visiting the beautiful looking gardens!

  3. I have always wanted to travel to Tokyo seeing all the beautiful gardens and sightings. I haven’t ever tried sushi but I would be willing to try it because it looks good.

  4. Definitely eating up sushi and ramen is my must in Tokyo. Lol. Also visiting Tokyo Skytree and the Tokyo tower. Temples and shrines plus the gardens are a must too.

  5. I think I would have to do the shrine for sure. The shrine and gardens look very beautiful. And then the sushi . . . it’s Japan so you have to do the sushi! mmmmmm!!!!

  6. OMG what an experience. Would love to visit there. The architecture is beautiful and I’m into martial arts myself, so I would totally be into watching that ninja. Looks like a great time!

  7. Japanese culture is so different and rich, I m sure you had great time in Tokyo. I also want to visit that part of the world thanks for sharing your thoughts .
