Why Travel to Tokyo?

Tokyo NightIf you’re one of those who have the luxury to travel from one country to another, Japan, specifically Tokyo, is most probably part of your top 5 list to visit. If you’re one of those who don’t have the capacity to travel abroad, you probably have Tokyo as one of the cities you’d want to visit on your wish list.

If you don’t plan to visit Tokyo at all and you’re wondering why it is a place to go for most people, here are top 3 reasons among the many:

1. Doubling the fun with the Twin centers Shibuya and Harajaku

Tokyo may be very urban-looking in photos you usually see over the Internet. Little do some people know that the atmosphere in the city transcends the typical urban setting because it is able to maintain the traditional aspect of their culture. The twin centers exemplify this wonderful mix with the urbanized citizens showing off their fashion statements around traditional spots like zoos and museums.

2. The shopaholic’s den: the Ginza neighborhood

Branded as the shopping Mecca in the city, shoppers would really love to visit the shops, boutiques, and fancy stores around. This is very famous especially to those who are into luxurious shopping.

3. The must-experience Shinjuku

The Japanese term doesn’t attract a thing but the sky scrapper buildings definitely catch everyone’s attention. Shinjuku is Tokyo’s major tourist destination. Towers, more towers, and bigger towers…Shinjuku is something you wouldn’t want to miss. Night life is also famous here.

Unlike most Japanese fast food where you get a to-go meal, Tokyo experience cannot be rushed. You really have to go there and experience it the best way you can.

    My buddy and I took a month of work recently and rented an apartment just outside Shibuya, in Ebisu, and man did we have the time of our life! You cannot imagine all there is to do over there, and let me tell you, the parties never stop. If you have the means, I highly recommend Tokyo. I was only 23 the first time I ever went, my buddy 21, and we keep going back!
