Before you make your way over to the famous Shibuya crossing, make a quick stop at Hachiko. The statue of this dog is a popular meeting place for people living in Tokyo. Hachiko (remember the Richard Gere Movie?) was a typical Japanese “Akita” dog born on a farm near the city of Ōdate in the Akita Prefecture of Japan. He was so loyal to his owner, that even after him passing away, he would return to the spot he always waited on him for the next 9 years. Every day! Nowadays, Hachiko is .....still popular and each year on April 8, he is honoured with a ceremony of remembrance at Shibuya Tokyo station. If you’re there around that date, perhaps fun to join in!

The first one is the typical Japan tumbler sold at all airports, and the second one is the special Haneda Airport tumbler that changes colors once you put a hot beverage inside of it.

Alannah wanted to visit Senso-Ji, a buddhist temple located in Asakusa and is Japans oldest temple. She was reading a book while we were there and the girl in the book had visited Senso-Ji. I’m glad that she asked, as Asakusa was my favourite part of Tokyo, particularly the area around Senso-Ji Temple. The temple is just a few steps from the Asakusa Station and is hard to miss, there are signs around the station also that will point you in the right direction.

Relaxed enough? Then you’ll probably enjoy the other biggest attraction in the Shibuya district: Shopping!! Some major shopping areas are: Center Gai (the large intersection in front of the station’s Hachiko Exit, great to see at night as well!), Shibuya Station itself (many, many floors of shops and restaurants, this thing is a maze!) and Koen Dori (“Park Street”, popular shopping street leading from the Marui department store to Yoyogi Park). As you can see, you’ve got plenty of choice, but here are some highlights:

Most people know about the Shibuya Crossing thanks to its presence in movies such as Lost in Translation, Fast and Furious and Resident Evil. This crossing is rumored to be the busiest crossing in the world! People cross here from 5 different angles. It is incredible to simply watch the people cross and weave their way through this crossing. I always wonder how people move so smoothly past each other whilst everyone seems to be staring at their phones. The Shibuya Crossing is located right in front of the Hachiko exit of Shibuya station.

Asakusa is in the northeast of Tokyo city, around 2.5 km east of Ueno and 3.5 km from Tokyo Station.  It’s an area where Tokyo’s history survives and you’ll feel this in some of its attractions, its many traditional restaurants and that there are more low rise buildings than skyscrapers around here. Asakusa’s most popular attraction for tourists is Senso-ji temple which dates back to the 7th century and the area around it has been popular since the Edo period when it was known as an entertainment district.  A few geisha .....and tea houses remain in Asakusa but they are not as visible to foreigners as the ones in Kyoto.

In east Tokyo, Akihabara is located between the Ueno and Tokyo stations. It is easily accessible via the Yamanote railway loop line so you will find you way there in no time. If shopping is what you can’t wait to do in Akihabara, I recommend you do it in the morning even though the area is also very enjoyable to visit during night time. By the way, to move around Tokyo, try using the website Hyperdia or download the Hyperdia App, just a quick tip to make everything easier for you.

I learned, after the fact, that temperatures hit 37 degrees (Celsius) the day I went (and with Tokyo’s characteristic 90%+ humidity in summer, 37 degrees feels like about 37 billion degrees). This explains why I got heat exhaustion, which is the main reason why the day turned out so hellishly.

It is the oldest temple in Tokyo dating back to 1632. If the break from the city isn’t enough to draw you in, be sure to check out the interesting pine tree that has formed a circle with its branches. Thus, this pine tree is known as tsuki no matsu, or “pine tree of the moon.”Cost: Free to visit grounds

Point at a Tokyo map enough times and eventually your finger will land on Aoto station 青砥駅, as mine did a few years ago. Later that day my legs took me to Aoto and walked east, crossing the Nakagawa River via the Takasago-bashi 高砂橋, a bridge far more modern than the surrounding neighborhood (map)(Streetview): On the east side of the river I followed a road with trees lining the median strip, a telltale sign that this used to be a river (map). This is Takasago, a quiet, un-flashy, and predominately pleasant neighborhood. The land is flat, but the high .....building density obscures anything other than the immediate surroundings. Tokyo Sky Tree isn’t even visible, though it could be seen back at Takasago-bashi. There’s a geographical ambiguity about this place – the center of Tokyo could be quite close or very far away, Takasago is comfortable, anonymous, re-assuring. I saw old looking businesses…   I sat on a bench in a well-used park next to a housing complex; the spring breeze played with the branches of the mature shade trees (map). Show less

Just feet from the Tora-san statue is Taishakuten-sando, a narrow, lively pedestrian road leading from Shibamata Station to Taishakuten temple. The kanji 参道, sando, means ‘approach’, as in the entrance path to a Shinto shrine. (This road is sometimes referred to as “Shibamata Temple Street” in English.) The street is reason enough to visit Shibamata, especially if you’re in the mood for traditional Japanese shops and a festive atmosphere. This spot is far enough from central Tokyo to be invisible to casual foreign tourists. Consequently, almost all of the people I saw in Shibamata were Japanese. Between the station and the start .....of the traditional shopping street:  The crowded heart of the Taishakuten-sando If you remember one thing from today’s post, it’s that Matsuya no Ame 松屋の飴総本店 is awesome.

One website describes this shop: “On Sunday and national holidays, “amekiri ondou” (candy cutting tuned to folk music) is performed. That is one of the Environment Agency-designated “best 100 scenes with sound.'” When I visited there were two men chopping sweet mochi with heavy cleavers. (I’m guessing they are father and son.)

Harajuku is famous for its quirky vintage clothing stores and street art especially along Takeshita Street (we got some good mileage out of that street name too mind you). Takeshita Street is directly in front of the Harajuku Station and if you are there at the right time you will witness some interesting Japanese youth culture and fashion including some pretty wild hairstyles and ‘out there’ make up. The fashion style in Harajuku is often confused with cosplay a.k.a costume playing which takes place on Harajuku Bridge on Sunday afternoons.

Part of the volcanically active Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, Hakone is famous for its beautiful nature where visitors can soak in hot springs while enjoying the views of Mount Fuji. The area is especially popular during spring when a variety of cherry blossoms turn the park into a maze of pink, white and purple. One of the highlights of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park is Hakone Gora Park, which was opened in 1914 as Japan’s first French-style garden. Reminiscent of France’s magnificent gardens the focus is on symmetry and geometric shapes. The park changes .....drastically throughout the seasons but no matter at which time of the year you visit, you are treated to a magnificent sight.

Besides that, you can always enjoy the view on the surrounding nature and cherry trees that are beautifully decorated during Christmas, illuminating the entire area.

The selection of Tokyo pottery on Kappabashi Street is overwhelming but in a good way. It would be impossible to walk down this kitchen theme street without finding at least one piece to buy. The only challenge is to decide what to buy because there is so much beautiful pottery available at reasonable prices. In other words, you should plan to buy several pieces of pottery. Pro Tip: Be sure to tell the sales clerk if you will be traveling with pottery. You will want to make sure they wrap your purchase .....well so that it won’t break in flight. This tip applies any time you’re shopping in Tokyo. As for us, we bought a few special pieces at Tousyougama, a shop that stood out to us for its distinctive style of pottery and its wide selection. This shop is a bit more expensive than many of the Kappabashi ceramics shops scattered along the street, but this is because their pieces are of higher quality. We especially love the sake set that we bought for ourselves here. The other pieces we bought made excellent gifts for close friends and family. Pro Tip: Be sure to check out Tousyougama if you’re wondering where to buy ceramics in Tokyo. Show less

The term ‘kyabakura’ is actually just a shortened word for cabaret club. The difference between kyabakura and host clubs is that kyabakura caters to male customers and host clubs cater to female customers. Inside both clubs you’ll find attractive women or men who are just as nice to look at as they are to chat with. Whether they were born with the inert ability to make others feel safe and loved or they’ve been perfecting their craft for years, even just an hour inside these establishments will make you eager .....to stay longer or visit again! Although it may seem like a dream come true – picking an attractive host from a large ‘menu’ and enjoying copious amounts of drinks with them as you laugh and enjoy your night together – it’s important to remember that your host is, in fact, a salesperson first and foremost. The more drinks they get you to buy, the higher their commissions are, and the more they make during their shift. To entice guests to spend as much as possible, they’ll make sure you drink as much as possible (using any tactics necessary). Regardless of the reason why hosts are engaging with clients, it’s still fun and entertaining to have such a beautiful human being cater to your whims and treat you like the center of the world. Although physical contact is banned in these establishments, you’ll still feel the warmth and love from your host’s sweet words and flirtatious looks. If you know what you’re getting into and want to enjoy having someone with god-like looks fawn over you for an hour or two, then the host club might be the perfect place fo you! Show less

Though you might be a bit apprehensive to check out this crazy, eccentric restaurant – like I was – after visiting the restaurant myself and seeing everything it had to offer, I can say with absolute certainty that it’s definitely worth the trip! Not only will you see some of the things that make Japan so unique and special in the eyes of those visiting this historic land, but you’ll also experience something new and exciting that you likely won’t be able to find anywhere else in the world! The Robot .....Restaurant is a themed restaurant that is hugely popular amongst both locals and travelers. It’s highly suggested to book early and online, as tickets for shows can be sold out for weeks (sometimes even months!) beforehand. Special prices can be found online for savvy shoppers, and you’ll have one less thing to worry about when you visit if your tickets are already purchased and stored on your phone and your seats are saved. I don’t want to give too much away here since we have so much more to cover in Tokyo’s red light district, but I will say this: with all the special effects, lights, dancing, music, drama, good, souvenirs, and futuristic technological spectacles, even if you can’t understand the language you’re sure to have a good time!  If you want to read all about my experiences at the Robot Restaurant and a detailed walkthrough of the event, you can find that information here: Robot Restaurant Tokyo.

If you’re a fan of classic Japanese cinema, or just love the larger than life monsters Japan creatures, than you’ll likely want to stop by Hotel Gracery to spot one of the most iconic characters in the land of the rising sun! The life-sized bust of Godzilla overlooks the Kabukicho entertainment district from the eighth floor of Hotel Gracery with a wide-open mouth, readying himself to attack! Many travelers actually miss this one-of-a-kind sight while visiting Kabukicho, so keep your eyes peeled and stay alert for giant lizards terrorizing the .....area!  To get the best view of this enormous landmark, it’s suggested that you either book a room at the hotel or enjoy a meal at Bonjour, a sandwich buffet with a floor-to-ceiling panoramic view of Godzilla’s head. Not only is the replica impressive to behold, but it also lights up, roars, and produces steam to mimic his iconic atomic breath or fireballs. This is a sight that’s especially fun to look at if you have young viewers or die-hard old monster movie fans in your party!  Although the name implies that Kabukicho is a seedy underbelly of Tokyo where sex reigns supreme, it’s actually quite an interesting place to visit if you want to experience a lesser known side of Japan. Host clubs and Kyabakura are great places to visit just to have the experience of being doted on by an extremely attractive man or woman; love hotels are great even if you don’t have a significant other; themed restaurants are a great way to enjoy a show without worrying about your Japanese level; and fun little surprises like a giant Godzilla head keep you on your toes. There are plenty of other fun things to do as a tourist in the area that are sure to delight and entertain!  Overall, Tokyo red light district is not just a place for getting down and dirty, but an area with unexpected treasures and experiences that will heighten any trip to Japan. If you’ve already experience the mainstream, normal activities most people enjoy doing in Japan, maybe it’s time you branch out a little and have fun on the wild side! Let your inhibitions guide you all the way to Kabukicho, and find out what fits your fancy at Tokyo red light district!

The Narita Airport is roughly 41 miles (66 km) away from Tokyo. The most budget-friendly way of getting to your hotel in Tokyo is by using the JR Narita Express. The journey takes roughly one hour and is fully covered by the Japan Rail Pass. If you want to avoid any unnecessary hassles (especially when you take into consideration jetlag) the most comfortable way to get to your hotel is by private transfer. This is especially convenient for larger parties or in case you have a lot of luggage.

Although it is labeled as a bike path, the Tamako Cycling Road is fair game for pedestrians as well. Even though the busier sections of the path have a designated lane for pedestrians, people tend to wander into the bike lanes (especially while enthralled by their smartphones). Therefore, keep your eyes peeled and watch your speed on the sections of the path that are near busy train stations.

“Let’s meet at Shibuya Station?” “Okay, where?” “By the Hachiko statue!” Everyone knows the Hachiko statue which makes it a very popular, but extremely busy meeting spot. Sometimes, due to the overbearing crowd, you may have difficulty finding one another. You won’t have trouble locating its virtual replica though on the second floor of Shibuya Fukuras— a Hachiko hologram created by the GMO Internet Group. You can have fun (and kill time) by dressing Hachiko up and give other commands using the tablet next to it.

Here are some ideas of what to see, do and eat, and some cool tips for a few overlooked destinations all within two hours of each other by train or car.
