Day 1 — The journey
After our brief stay in Kyoto, we hopped on the bus to the train station, then took the train back to Tokyo. There is a small chance we might have become horribly lost in the station.
After we satisfied Becky’s craving for pancakes, we headed to Shibuya to explore on foot. Once we were done there, we headed to central Tokyo to take in the last temple of the trip – Meiji Jingu.
Rain! We wanted to finish looking through some spots we missed in Shibuya, so we hopped on the train and headed back to the area.
Akihabara is quite the place. It’s known for its arcades, manga subculture, and massive electronic stores. Think Best Buy, but six floors high.
This was one of my favorite places in Tokyo. It’s known for its vintage clothing and music scene, but the biggest thing I noticed was the lack of foreigners. We started off at a small cafe to grab a coffee and followed it up with shisha and sushi after exploring the area.
Until next time.
