Finally, it was the day to visit Tokio after ten days around Japan visitng big cities and small towns. We posted on our travel blog all about Odawara, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Miyajima, Takamatsu, Kotohira, Kamakura, Yokohama and now Tokio.
It was the time to explore one of the biggest metropolies of the world. During four days we were living on our friends house Ryo and Kyoe at Yokohama-Shin. We woke up early and had breakfast with Ryo. Then, it was the time to spend our first day in Tokio. We decided to go to Shibuya and then visit Takeshita street. We recommend to visit Shibuya at afternoon/night. We think that around 6/7pm it’s good time. Shibuya is famosue for the cross streets where hundreds of people cross when the traffic lights beacme green.
After a great walk around Shibuya we went to eat to chinese restaurant. The cook is the husband of the sister of Ryo, our japanese friend. We ate eihgt different dishes, chinese and japanese food. One of the best meals thst we had in Japan.
After eating like crazies we went to Atakeshita street. Overthere, we found large street full of young japanese dressed up like if you were on Manga Comic.
Around 7pm we came back to Shin-Yokohama. Our Japanese friends invited us to firework neigbourhood traditional party. They gave like present a Japanese dress. Then, we dressed up and enjoyed all night eating, drinking and playing with fireworks with a lot of Japanaese kids.
After that, we went to rest and sleep to be ready to enjoy another day at Tokio.
Recommendations in Tokio:
Visit Shibuya at afternoon/night.
Visit Atakeshita street on the weekend.
