So I finally managed to save up enough to go visit Japan. SO EXCITING! The boyf and I decided to stay in Tokyo for the duration of our stay. We ended up booking an apartment from Air BnB rather than a hotel since we wanted a place to ourselves where we could relax and cook if we wanted to.
The apartment wasn’t big but was a decent size for two people. The downsize to it was that the kitchen was tiny and thus we had to use the space wisely when preparing and cooking food.
The bathroom was small as well but came with a small bathtub. Which I believe is standard with most Japanese apartments. The area was in Gotanda which is in central Tokyo and literally on the JR Yamanote line, so all the main areas and attractions were within easy reach.
I quite liked our little space as it had a small sitting room for us to wind down after a long day and have our TV dinners.
We spent most of our time visiting shrines, Shopping (a lot) and going to cultural attractions. I’m planning to write about each day or attraction separately so stay tuned for these posts! I’ll be sure to link them all here as well 😁
For those interested we ended up visiting:
- Tokyo Tower
- Tokyo Skytree
- Character Street
- Tsukikoji Fish Market
and many more… I’ll be posting up about it in the next few weeks so be sure to come back to check them out :)
It was an amazing experience and I would definitely visit again! Maybe to Osaka, Kyoto or Hokkaido.
All my love,
