Tokyo Activities

by jbabinski78

So if all goes as planned I'll be in Tokyo for a few days the week of AUG 23rd. Just wanted to see if there's any other VT folks there that would like to meet up.

The only things that come to mind that I want to do is go to Tokyo Tower; eat a puff fish; go to that busy busy street with so much foot traffic; and catch a bullet train somewhere. I'd really like to see a Sumo tournament, but I think Sumo season starts in SEP.

Thanks,
Jay

Love Tokyo, wish I could say that I would be thru at that time.

Just some thoughts as a regular tourist:

Tokyo tower is a tourist trap. If you want a great city view, to the to Tokyo Metro Gov't offices in the high-rise district of Shinjuku. Spectaular view of the city and Mt. Fuji, and it's FREE to goto the observation floor.

That busy intersection is in Shibuya, it is right outside the train station.

Check out Kabukicho, it is the red-light district. Very clean and safe for a RLD. There is also a small alley/street right by Kabukicho that has a whole bunch of little old-school yakitori bars.

Also, goto electic town in Akihibara. Visit one of the maides cafes. I suggest "Maidreaming". It is on the main strip w/ the electronics stores.

Other than that, there is a million things to explore.

If you are going to take the Bullet Train, take it to Kyoto, in my opinion one of the most beautiful cities in Japan. Stay a couple of nights, as it is well worth it.

As for the puffer fish, make sure you go to a reputable place, and that it is actually a real puffer that you are paying for. As you likely know, it is one of the most leathal animal species on the planet. For it to be edible, it requires that the fish is skinned alive to prevent the toxin to leak into the flesh. There are plenty of places that sell fake puffers to tourists, so know what you are doing.

Also, be aware that it is real easy to get lost, and if that happens, - good luck! Take a look at what I mean.

Go to Tokyo Tower;

The Tokyo Met. Gov. building are free as was mentioned; however much of the good view is blocked out by a cafe up there - unless you have window seats in the cafe part you don't see much of central Tokyo from there.
Tokyo City view - the top floor of the Roppongi hills is a bit expensive (you can get reduced price tickets at ticket shops) but the view is spectacular. Going in the late afternoon on a clear day you will see Tokyo at night, and by day. There is an art gallery there as well that always has exceptionally good exhibiitons.


eat a puff fish;
There is an easy to find one between Asakusa station and Nakamise dori (the main shopping street) not far from Kaminarimon (the big gates).
go to that busy busy street with so much foot traffic;
Shibuya crossing? Shinjuku station area? Ginza and Omotesando are busy but wide enough not to be swamped - usually.

and catch a bullet train somewhere.
Lots of options - a cheap option is to go somewhere on the JR East pass.

I'd really like to see a Sumo tournament, but I think Sumo season starts in SEP.

You may be able to see sumo training at Ryokoku if you are up early in the morning.
Thanks,
Jay

Travel Tips for Tokyo

Give the Sensoji temple in Asakusa a visit!

by teddibare

Tokyo is a city of modernity, but, few would have guess that an older part of town offer a more relaxed and gentle way of life.

If you have time, run down to the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. There is a 300meter long street leading to the temple where small stalls sells everything imaginable. Particularly interesting are the street tidbits like baked, animal cakes and rice crackers made on the spot.

Along the streets leading away from the temple, you can also find many quaint shops selling all kind of stuff. Kill time here by walking in this area. I love the culture and the politeness of the people here.

by swanmey

Here are two views of is the Fuji TV building, which is built out on a bunch of landfill in Tokyo Harbour. The whole area is filled with bizarre buildings, as if the architects were all trying to outdo each other. This one's my favourite though. There's a restaurant inside of the ball.

Tokyo Disneyland

by dennisKL

If you happen to drop by this wonderland, my advice is do bring lots of water!..you need to walk most of the time. Check out for the sign 'FP' - fast past where you can actually get a advance pass for a ride witout wasting time on the long queue specially on weekends. Check out the time schedule for the showcase and firework & parade! Don't miss it.

by Krystynn

visit the Imperial Palace - Home to the Emperor of Japan here in Marunouchi district.

Oh, before I forget, the Imperial Palace is only open to the general public on TWO days in a year i.e. the Emperor's birthday (23 December) and on 2 January. You can, however, stroll around this historic palace's perimeter grounds and gardens.

by huesten

This is a graceful society. The people are proud being a Japanese. They value their job as a profession and give respect to others who uphold their own. They will take ownership of their work regardless of credit or criticism.One encounter at a shop: We were pleasantly suprised by their attitute towards their jobs when a sale was closed, there were a round of applause from all the staff.Many a times, customers who step into the shops were greeted, 'Konichiwa....' and with a smile that you known it was sincere. The astronomical prices were most probably the only reason for not buying. Nevertheless, customers would still greeted with '....sayonara' with the same smile as they leave the shops.
