Tokyo is every bit as massive as I expected, full of skyscrapers, flashing billboards, and busy intersections. It is truly something to see! But Tokyo is surprisingly charming at the same time. Hidden just a few train stops away from the hustle and bustle of areas like Shibuya are spacious green parks and tiny local coffee shops. I did not realize that each area of Tokyo would have their own character and history. Of course, it’s no surprise that every area in this city is incredibly clean – even though you rarely see a trashcan!
Harajuku is easily one of my favorite spots in Tokyo. It truly has something for everyone – from high end stores like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Chanel to bright kawaii shops and themed cafes on Takeshita Dori. It is sensory overload! A trip to Harajuku is never complete without a rainbow colored cotton candy or sweet filled crepe.
