Ohayo Gozaimasu Tokyo!

Yes, for the next 9 days I will be in the land of sashimi and pachinkos. Can you tell, I am super excited? Japan has always been on my bucket list, probably ever since ... Ultraman. The hours of my childhood spent watching him trounce bad asses in lizard rubber suits with terrible fit, motor skills and a super long zip at the back. How fun! It was so uncomplicated then.   

Anyways, the reality is that there is just too many awesome places/things to go/see/do in Tokyo and I only have two full days in the city that kisses the sun. (Before I make my way to Kyoto and Osaka.) What are the absolute must-sees? If you have any suggestions, please, please let me know. Arigatou gozaimasu.

  2. Hi there!
    I was there a week ago. It was also my first time and it was also for two days. I would say that that temple in the picture is a must see, also the small shops in the street in front of its gates. Akihabara is also a must see for manga/anime fans or videogames/technology lovers. But one of the things I enjoyed the most, was to have a bowl of noodles in a small restaurant in Shibuya. Small silly thing, I know, but it was the most authetic japanese experience!
    Have lots of fun!! :D

  3. Make sure you visit the Daibutsu of Kamakura! My visit brought me inspiration, and SO much more. For more information on THAT, take a look at my website: www.pathofthegaijin.com

    Sincerely,
    Brian

    P.S. The movie section of the site is NOT active, as I'm still editing all the footage into the final film myself. Thx!
