I am in love with Japan. Tokyo displays such a balanced blend between modern technology and ancient culture. It’s impeccably clean and feels surprisingly safe for a major city. Everyone dresses fashionably, and the food is fantastic.
Walking around Roppongi on a Saturday night inspires drinking in the nightlife. This morning, I took a long walk down to the Imperial Palace and gardens. From there, I went to Tokyo train station and caught a train to Harajuku. After visiting the shrine in Yoyoshi Park, I caught another train back to Roppongi.
If it weren’t for the high cost of living, among other obstacles, I would love to live here. I wish I had more time to explore more of the country, particularly some of the countryside and smaller villages. I will definitely be coming back some day.
So happy you made it to Tokyo! And glad you’re enjoying your visit.
soinds fab. there is a certain child of mine leaning over my shoulder at the moment yelling GREETINGS FROM TOKYO?! because he is obsessed with all things godzilla/tokyo.
Sounds like a lovely visit. No wonder you want to return.
