Things to Do in Tokyo, Japan

Mount Fuji

At the first time, the reason why i loved Japan and why had a desire to go over there was because of Harajuku Fashion Style. Their eccetric fashion style, that was so popular throughout the world, drag my attention and my curiousity to the origin of the style.

Ultimately, it’s not the only interesting thing in Tokyo. There are so many fascinating things around the city that amazed me beyond what i expected before. After exploring Tokyo, if i may have one word to describe Tokyo is “Endless”.

Tokyo is the capital of Japan and it is one of the busiest and craziest city in the world. It seems like every second time is worth a dollar. Stylish robotic people crowd out the city and “barbie” girls work like robot. Every inch of the ground is worth as well as gold.

In my views, Tokyo has ultimate-super-duper-civilization. Incredible old-fashioned and modern culture are mixed through high level technology. The superfast bullet train and well-managed mass rapid transit carry the people accross the city easily and quickly. Thoughtful old people and ultracreative young generation are united by sophisticated gadget.

Tokyo has abundance of interesting tourist attractions. Several of those are mentioned as follows:

City Views

a. Akihabara

Akihabara is famous as an electronic town. It is a major shopping area for electronics, computer, gadget, anime, otaku, and other electronic goods.

b. Ginza

As it is recognized as one of the most luxurious shopping districts in the world, Ginza has become a shopping heaven for fashion lovers. Many branded stores such as Armani, Burberry, Luis Vuitton, Chanel, etc. is  majestically rising along the streets.

Here you can also find Tamiya Toy Shop (do you remember Dash Warriors?) and Kabuki Show Theatre.

c. Shinjuku

Shinjuku is a major central business and administrative district in Tokyo. It  has the busiest station in the world and become a major urban transit hub in Tokyo. Another famous spots are Takashimaya Mall and Times Square Tower.

I remember that i bought a camera in a camera store around Shinjuku named Kitamura. It has cheaper price than other stores.

d. Roppongi

Beside it’s become the central of many foreign embassies, Roppongi is also known as numerous nightclubs, bars, strip clubs, restaurants, hostess clubs, cabarets, and other entertainments. Here lies Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo for you are Hard Rock’s fans and Hard Rock merchandise’s collectors.

It is a rainbow colored light suspension bridge crossing northern Tokyo Bay between Shibaura Pier and the Odaiba. It is better if you come to Odaiba at the night to see the beauty of the bridge.

g. Odaiba

Odaiba  is a large artificial island in Tokyo Bay across the Rainbow Bridge from Tokyo central. I think Odaiba is a symbolization of a modern civilization. There lies Miraikan Museum (Japan’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation), the Museum of Toyota/Megaweb (exhibition hall of  Toyota car), the Sony Building (advanced technology products), Venus Fort (a Venice-themed shopping mall), and many more.

j. Shibuya

If you’ve ever watched movie with the title “Hachiko”, a statue of Hachiko is located in here adjacent to the railstation. Shibuya, one of the most busiest central business district in Tokyo, is also popular in the movies like “Lost in Translation”  and “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift”
