Japan has always been one of my dream countries to travel to and honestly, I fell in love with the place, the culture and the people. Tokyo has become one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s a fast paced modern city that still gives utmost importance to its traditional past. Here you can see palaces, shrines and museums amidst towering skyscrapers and modern buildings. Japan also has fantastic food –sushi, ramen, yakitori and a whole LOT more!
I was able to visit Tokyo twice and witnessed two beautiful seasons – autumn and winter. Here is the first part of my Japan trip – the table below is a detailed itinerary of my Tokyo trip during autumn (October).
This is my attempt to provide you with a guide especially for first-time travelers to Japan. With so many sights to see and activities to do in Tokyo, this train map hopes to help you navigate the city to make the most out of your visit (hopefully you’ll fall in l❤️ve with Japan too!).
I highly suggest that you buy the JR Tokyo Wide pass. This pass provides unlimited travel on JR trains (including shinkansen and limited express trains, it’s the green circle on the map 🙂 ) and selected non-JR trains in the Kanto Region on three consecutive calendar days. This is only exclusive for use of non-Japanese passport holders.
There are also lots of restaurants in Shibuya so be prepared for a tummy-filling adventure too.
