Common Places To Visit in Tokyo, Japan ala Jenponix

Thursday, August 4, 2016

Every tourist visiting Japan must probably include Tokyo, Japan's capital in their itineraries. I guess it should not be forgotten. At all, it's the capital of the Land of the Rising Sun where fashion, culture, and food at its best. Better agree with me, Japanese food is the best! I guess every traveler's dream is to set their feet in Tokyo. Just like me. Yes, I've been here for almost 4 years but I just recently visited it and guess what? I will go back for sure, of course, to visit the places I've missed and to try other things Tokyo can offer. When that time comes, it should be long, I promise. For now, I will just give you my personal 1-day itinerary. One day is not enough to explore Tokyo, but I was able to at least capsulized Tokyo in less than 24 hours.

I departed Nagoya 11:50 in the evening and arrived at Shinjuku 5:30 in the morning the next day. By the way, I traveled almost 6 hours via an overnight Willer Express bus. It had 3 stops in order for the passengers to have the toilet or have some midnight snacks or to prepare for arrival. Don't worry, this overnight bus will let you relax for the night. Well, of course, Japanese service, you know. Well, on to my personal itinerary. These are the list I was able to visit during that span of time.

1. Hachiko Statue/Shibuya Crossing (Shibuya)
This is where the statue of Hachiko, the loyal dog from the movie who patiently waits for his master to come home even the master died from heart attack. This is a popular rendezvous for friends or couple outside the Shibuya station. Another famous place in Shibuya is the Shibuya crossing or known as the "The Scramble". The world's busiest intersection where a great number of people, locals and tourists alike pass through once the green light is on.
