The Streets of Tokyo

Travel + Adventure

Tokyo is a crazy, vibrant, electric and amazing city. Each time I visit I find new things to love about the place. This trip was a short whirlwind weekend for a close friend's 40th birthday, and we made the most of our time, kid-free and ready to explore. There is no shortage of things to do in this city but my favourite Tokyo activity is to wander the streets soaking up the atmosphere. The city is huge and each corner so varied and unique. You can be crossing the street with 2500 people one minute, then sitting in a tiny bar built for 7 people the next. The food is amazing, the people are so polite and the sake is growing on me. This was our first time visiting in at the start of winter, when there is a chill in the air but the trees are still hanging on to their yellow leaves. We will definitely be back, next time with the kids!
