Started the day navigating the busiest train station in the world, Shinjuku, on my way to the top deck of Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world and second tallest structure (634m/2080ft), lift ascends at 200m/min, certainly fast and high enough to make your ears pop!
Ended with a wander around Asakusa, lunch at a sushi conveyer belt restaurant, and the amazing Senso-Ji. First time seeing actual komainu!!! That’s my time in Tokyo done for now, off to the next stop
A jaunt on the shinkansen (finally) to Ireland vs Scotland in Yokohama where I got thoroughly rained on and then the shinkansen down to Kyoto
We visited #Asakusa (浅草), #Tokyo the other day.
There were so many foreign tourists there and we asked them how they liked #Japan .
We were so happy to know they had favorable impressions.
We really enjoyed talking to the tourists who came from #Argentina , #Belgium , #Mexico , #Hungary etc.
We appropriate their friendly answers and thank #jagpp for this opportunity and photos.
There’s nothing like wearing a kimono to feel the full force of Japanese unique culture👘✨🥰
Are you keen to stroll around the streets of Tokyo in a kimono, enjoy your lunch in a very Japanese style, and maybe take loads of pictures in the process?📸 .
A nice kimono will go well with sakura🌸, momiji🍁 or a temple or shrine⛩ in the background. By the way, you shouldn’t worry about not having your own kimono or not knowing how to wear one, as there are lots of kimono rental shops in Tokyo that are offering a hassle-free kimono-wearing experience to tourists😉✌🏼
Most famous areas for this experience are Shibuya, Ginza, Asakusa, Nihonbashi and Harajuku❤️
