I did so much in Tokyo this past week with Katie and I wanted to share all the exciting places we went to around Tokyo. Instead of listing all the places, I’m going to summarizes the top 5 places to go in Tokyo from Katie’s visit as well as the places I’ve gone so far during my Study Abroad.
It’s a great little city outside of Tokyo on the bay and has a great view of Tokyo and Rainbow Bridge.
Celebrating it’s 1 year anniversary, it’s hard not to include Tokyo Skytree. Althoug it’s very crowded, it’s the number one attraction in Japan right now and the tallest building in the world.
It’s Disney in Japan, if you’ve been to any of the Disney parks you’ll be very familiar. I suggest Disney Sea, as it’s the newest park and offers exclusive attractions.
I put this high on the list because besides the Zoo, there is a lot to do in Ueno Park, which is famous for it’s cherry blossoms. The Zoo also has a discount to foreigners and is very cheap, around $5 for hours of entertainment.
This is about 2 hours out of Tokyo, and offers a great hike. I chose this as number 1 because after living in Tokyo for 2 months, it was great to go on hike and enjoy nature. There is a lot to do here and it offers an incredible view of the ocean as well as one of the largest Buddha Statues. I also had the most fun with Katie here and it’s a great place to see if you ever get tired of the claustrophobia that is Tokyo city.
