HELLO TOKYO

December 11, 2016 Tokyo, Japan

I went to Tokyo last month in November, but am just getting around to posting these photos. Amazing is an understatement...I'm hoping to go again next fall! Feeling nostalgic already.  Sadly, I was sick during my entire stay in Tokyo which is why I don't have that many photos but I fell in love with the city the moment I landed. Everyone is very polite, kind, and willing to help. I only know how to say ありがとうございます (thank you / arigatou gozaimasu) and a couple of phrases, but luckily my friends were my tour guides throughout the trip. Thank you Sarah, Dorothy, and Yumi for taking care of me :)


Highlights of my visit:
*I recommend going to all of the places mentioned above if you have time

Places I wish I visited:
-Shinjuku Piss Alley
-Roppongi
-Kyoto
-Osaka

Eats:
-Ichiran Ramen
-Japanese candy! So good!

I don't recall having any bad food during my stay in Japan, everything was delicious! I would definitely recommend eating tonkatsu and curry while in Japan, it's different than Korean curry that I'm used to but it's amazing. The line for Sushi Dai can take several hours since there's limited seating, but personally I think it's worth the wait. People start lining up as early as 2 to 3am since doors open at 5am so I would plan ahead if you're willing to go. I had to go to the hospital while I was in Japan, but wow...healthcare in Japan is very cheap. It's the price of a steak chipotle for a doctor's visit! I have to say Tokyo is one of my favorite places I've traveled so far and I can't wait to go back!



Love, Sharon

  2. Aww, sorry to hear you were sick, but I'm glad you enjoy it. Tokyo is definitely a lovely place for travel, everything is just so traveler-friendly despite the language barrier. I'm so in love with it that my personal goal is to travel there once in a year.

  4. What a coincidence, I also visited Japan and November and I seriously miss it so much!! Totally agree with all the highlights of your visit, especially the food! Ichiran was by far the best ramen I have ever tried. Fortunately I was able to visit Osaka and Kyoto and highly recommend going if you ever make it back! Lovely photos! xx
