Hello again, everyone! Happy Monday (even if it’s nearly over)! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a marvelous start to the new week. I definitely did: Saturday was Kristin’s baby shower and it turned out BEAUTIFULLY. I cannot wait to share it with all of you. I also am excited to report that my jet lag is *nearly* cured. I slept from midnight until 9a today — that is the most “normal” sleeping pattern I’ve had in two weeks. Hooray!
Today I am going to share with you the final installment of my Tokyo Travels series. Thank you for indulging me by letting me share my trip with you; I cannot overemphasize how I loved Tokyo. How I still love Tokyo. How I daydream about it allll the time! Today’s post is just a bunch of random other things we did in Tokyo. Truth be told, I could have written a 12 part series on our journeys in Japan. There was just SO much to see, do, and soak in. I may have mentioned that I wrote an 8-page itinerary for our trip. We spent 12 days in Tokyo, exploring for 13-15 hours a day, and didn’t even come close to knocking out my itinerary. If any of you are thinking about visiting Tokyo, YOU MUST. For all its history, rich culture, dazzling sights and sweeping natural beauty… Tokyo is not to be missed. I cannot wait until we have the chance to visit again.
Shinjuku at night. Just around the corner is the most amazing soba spot!
Precious schoolgirls waiting for the metro. Two of them were excluding/bullying the third… I wanted to scoop her up and hug her!
yum-on-a-stick in asakusa
sumida gawa cruise (passing under dozens and dozens of bashi — bridges) at night.
outrageously delicious tonkatsu at maisen in harajuku. they have 3 types of pork here (top pick being juicy kurobuta) and the most savoury tonkatsu sauce EVER.
Site of the most amazing sushi of my life: roppongi fukuzushi. Write that down. You NEED to be here. It’s nearly 100 years old and praised by many as the best sushi in all of tokyo (crazy for a city that has 7000+ sushi bars).
A small look at some of the things we devoured that night. When you go to a restaurant like this, you don’t look at the menu. You tell the chef “omakase” (it’s up to you!) and enjoy. Everything = sublime. We knew we picked the right spot when we walked in and saw we were the only non-natives *and* the youngest diners in the room. 🙂
I don’t know why, but I just love this random pic of me wandering around on Tom Sawyer Island at Tokyo Disneyland.
The best deal in Tokyo Disneyland and the breakfast of champions — about 4 bucks for this gigantic Mickey waffle. 🙂 And I didn’t share.
Me surrounded by a sea of golden gingko leaves. ❤
Hope you all have a fantastic week! Other posts you can look forward to this week: Taipei Travels + how to plan a shower/party. 🙂 xoxo, Angel
