FYeahJapan: Out and About in Tokyo



There are so many great places to visit in Tokyo so I thought today I would share a handful of the different places we visited also this will probably be one of my final posts about Tokyo BUT not the last of my travel posts as I still have Kyoto, Osaka and South Korea to talk about as well as my current adventures in Thailand so keep checking back every week...

If you want a free and awesome view of Tokyo then be sure to head on over to Shinjuku and visit this place, there's also a great gift shop for souvenirs and a tourist information section to help you with your travels.

I'd describe Odaiba as the mini Las Vegas of Tokyo as it has lot's of shopping and entertainment places there all with some sort of random theme but most people, like myself, visit for the giant Gundam which I won't lie it is pretty damn huge and impressive....

It's also a great place to visit at night when it's all lit up so you can get a great view of the rainbow bridge and the Statue of Liberty....

Meiji Shrine

We visited the Meiji Shrine of New Years Eve and it was surprisingly quiet although saying that we were a few hours early so I'm sure it got busier by midnight.

The Meiji Shrine is one of Tokyo's most popular attractions and it's in Yoyogi Park and just across the road from Harajuku's main shopping street so definitely a great area to visit.

Tokyo Imperial Palace Garden

Tokyo Imperial Palace is probably not something at the top of my list to visit again as there's not much to see there seeing as the main palace grounds are off limits to the public but it is a very pretty area.

The gardens outside are nice and quiet to walk around despite being surrounded by high rise buildings and there's lot's of adorable ducks and swans to say hello to, so if you just want somewhere to relax for a couple of hours it's possibly worth a visit.
