Travel Diary: Tokyo, Japan

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 😁

    I went to Japan last year, and I loved it! We spent most of our time in Tokyo and Kyoto, though we also took day trips to other cities like Nara, Hakone, and Osaka. That 109 building photo brings back such nice memories. I did a cosplay photoshoot there! I’m looking forward to your entries about the trip. You visited a few places I didn’t go to in Tokyo, so I’m interested in seeing what you thought of those!

    • Oh wow! I really want to visit Kyoto and go back to Osaka next time. I loved the ruralness.
      Hehe there were so many people who cosplay or dressed up as lolita normally I was surprised no one stops them for photos!

  • Kya

    Japan looks like such an amazing place to visit and I hope I can see it one day. I really love the photos and look forward to hearing more about your adventures. :D

  • Japan will always hold a special place in my heart and a home away from home. We went to Japan earlier this year to celebrate the big 3-0 and I’ve definitely hit most of the areas on your list, the only one I don’t think I was able to get to was Shibuya 109 and Character Street, where is this? I’ll have to add it to my list! Looking forward to your posts to highlight each section! :D

    • Awwwh. I want to go there for a honeymoon, whenever that happens lol. Happy belated birthday! I’m sure you had an amazing time ^^ Shibuya 109 is a large shopping mall in the heart of Shibuya. It’s literally a ladies shopping heaven. Character Street is in Tokyo station with little shops filled with kawaii items!
