One of the most amazing Japan tours – what to do in Tokyo

One of the most amazing of all Japan tours is the Tokyo tour. I think that Tokyo is a city worth exploring without a plan. With internet access and some on-site research, I think you can make a list of exciting activities and attractions.

In the four days I have been able to see everything I found attractive in the city and surroundings. For a first visit it was more than enough. It’s impossible to make a top, but I recommend that you make as many of those as you draw attention.

  1. Get lost by yourself

Ride through the Central Station and if you want more, you can walk through the “underground city” from the station to the nearby metro stations. I arrived by subway in Ginza and seeing signs to JR station I thought to follow them. Not a few times I thought it was ok and I was coming out. Another good place not to miss is in Sunshine City, the first city complex in the city of Japan. Even though it was designed in 1978 it is still fascinating and topical.

  1. Popular neighborhoods

Visit popular neighborhoods. Asakusa for history and probably the most important temple (Sensoji) and Akihabara, the electric district. Walk for as long as you can, you will definitely find fascinating things. Through the Akihabara area you can also find the famous cafes. I did not go into any one, but I saw the advertisement on them on the street.

  1. Culinary delights

You can also enjoy various culinary delights in the Asakusa area. Many are up to the entrance to the temple, but the whole area is an animated one and you can find various eating dishes.

  1. Matcha flavor ice cream

Sprinkle with a green tea ice cream. In Asakusa it’s going to be easy to find it. Suzukien Nanaya Gelato is the place to boast the most intense flavor of green tea (matcha). I found out why I had already tried and did not go to him. Matcha is very popular in Japan and you will find it in many delights. After testing it in various forms, I would say it’s just in the tea.

  1. The top of the city

See the top city! You can do it from several places. You can admire the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building for free, but I think the best view you can have from the observer in Sunshine City. I chose the latter, other options would be Tokyo Skytree, Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Tower. All 3 being “too in the city” to admire the view.

  1. Mini-bars in Golden Gai

Drink something in the Golden Gai mini-bar area. It will not be easy to decide because there are over 200 barrels … anyway, you can go from the bar to the bar if you have time. The places are tiny and are more for a group of friends who will fill the bar.

  1. Cross across Shibuya

Cross the pedestrian crossing from Shibuya. This is the most crowded in the world. After crossing the ravine and admiring the agglomeration for … a few traffic lights. And if you do not get the crowd out of the Central Station, here’s where you lose. Shibuya Station is one of the busiest in Japan.

  1. Breakfast in Tsukiji Market

Go for a breakfast in Tsukiji Fish Market. Okay, if you do not have a sleep you can go in the morning (3-4 AM) to see how the “tuna transaction” falls off. I was only satisfied with a breakfast. Unfortunately, the market went through a fire in early August (2017) and will most likely be under renovation for a while. Find out more here.

  1. Buy from vending machines

You should not miss buying anything from the vending machines. There are so many things that it’s hard not to stop looking for something new about them. Most of them are refreshing, but they are some with sweets, ice cream or other to eat.

  1. Go outside the city

Visit a nearby town for a day or a half. You can easily reach Yokohama, Kamakura, Nikko or Kawagoe. I have chosen Kawagoe for half a day and for a full day, Kanazawa. Okay, Kanazawa is not even a day to be done, especially as I was at the festival.

How to Save Money While on Vacation

Vacations are a wonderful thing to go on, but they can be quite expensive. Even if you plan your vacation out, unexpected things may come up that will leave you having to spend more money.

Instead of being stuck paying more money, there are things that you can do to ensure that you save money and still get to have fun.

Plan your Vacation Out

When you decide to go on vacation, one of the most important things that you can do is to determine where you are going and then determine exactly what you are going to do. Look online at your destination and see what there is to do there. Are there sights and sounds that you would like to go see? Museums, fun park, or water park that are must-haves for your family? Look for fun things to do in the city you are going to. Once you have seen several things that you might want to do, sit down and make a plan. 

Your plan should include exactly where you are going and where you will stay. Knowing your hotel beforehand will help you to plan out your vacation days. Take into consideration everything that you want to do and determine what time of day it would be best to do these things. Take your time and come up with a plan that will allow you to do everything that you want to do. You will also want to set a budget on what you want to spend while on vacation. This will help you to know your budget in your head and to plan accordingly. Be strict with yourself and do not go over your budget while on vacation.

Using Coupons

One of the most popular things that you can do to save money while on vacation is to use coupons. There are many coupons out there that can help you to save money on different attractions. In many cases, you can save 40-50 percent off of wherever you would like to go. For instance, if you would like to go visit an aquarium, you can get a discount coupon for that. Before you go on vacation, look at https://www.groupon.com/coupons/stores/citypass.com. Type in your city location and you will be able to find a broad variety of coupons for different attractions in the area you are vacationing in. This can help to stretch your budget and even allow you to do more things that you expected on your vacation.
