Tokyo Summer Fashion Diary

Monday, 21 January 2019

Surprise, surprise. Another ridiculously long overdue post.

        A lot of you have requested that I write about what to do in Tokyo, so here it is! I'll admit, this list is pretty general and not even near being exhaustive. But if you're a first-timer in Tokyo, you should give it a read! I've complied some of Tokyo's most popular spots for you guys.

Harajuku

        You can't say you went to Tokyo without hitting up the famous Harajuku. I'll admit it might not be for everyone, but man is it a sight to see. Harajuku is like its own little city with its own culture. A large portion of Japan is very conservative, especially when it comes to fashion and cosmetics. And this is precisely what makes Harajuku stand out. Harajuku is known for its unique fashion scene, from punk to goth to lolita to straight up cosplayers. Oh, and the famous Harajuku crepes. That's a must-try.




Shibuya

        Another top tourist spot is the Shibuya Crossing. Rumoured to be the most crowded crossing in the world, this is a sight (and a walk) you don't want to miss. I genuinely think there are more foreigners at that intersection than there are locals. What I recommend is to not only cross this street, but to view it from abovethat's how you see the true beauty of it. If you walk into the Tsutaya, located right by the intersection, and go up the escalators to the Starbucks, there's a really nice view of the crossing. What's even better? When it's raining and all the colourful umbrellas are out. It looks like a beautiful, organized chaos.



Asakusa

        Home to the famous Sensō-ji, a Buddhist temple, Asakusa is the place to go for some historic, olden Tokyo vibes. The Kaminarimon, the large entrance gate that leads to Sensō-ji, is a must-see as well.
         Near Sensō-ji is Nakamise Street, a small shopping street filled with trinkets, crafts, and food stalls! It's a super fun spot and a great place to buy your souvenirs.




Tokyo Tower

        Inspired by the Eiffel Tower, this lattice red & white tower is a Tokyo icon. There's 2 ways I like to view this tower. One is from the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower Observation Deck (you can get such a beautiful view of the city from here) and the other is up close and personal.
        These photos were taken right nearby the tower. The closest subway stations to the tower are Onarimon Station on the Mita Subway Line, Akabanebashi Station on the Oedo Subway Line and Kamiyacho on the Hibiya Subway Line. These are all about a 5-10 minute walk from the tower!




Akihabara

        This one's for all you anime lovers. Akihabara is literally an otaku's wonderland. Here you can find tons of anime stores, and I guarantee you'll find a keychain of any character you could think of. One of the more popular, and larger, stores is called Animate. Just a 5 minute walk from Akihabara Station, Animate is a giant 7-floor store filled with manga/anime goods. Yup, you heard right. Seven floors. 



Tokyo Disney Resort

        Okay, so for those of you who only have a short time in Tokyo, this may not be a top (or even middle) priority for you. But let me tell you, for me it's a top priority. I'm pretty sure I have gone every year since 23 years ago. Tokyo Disney Resort is made up of 2 main parks: Disney Land and Disney Sea. If you had to choose one, I would say go for Disney Sea because it's unique to Tokyo. I might be biased because I'm a huge Disney fan, but I truly believe Disney is for everyone of all ages. There's something so warm, welcoming, and magical about it. Oh, and I think Tokyo's Disney has the best food out of all other Disneys ;).
        If you're fortunate enough to spend a long time in Tokyo, I would totally hit up this magical kingdom.





And there we have it! I admit I barely scraped the surface in terms of places to go in Tokyo, but I'll try to create more content on my next visit!

Have you been to Tokyo? If so, what was your favourite part? And if not, where would you want to go?

Love, Lena

  7. During my commute to Manhattan on the Express Bus one morning, I had the company and pleasure of reading the March issue of Allure magazine.
