Tokyooooo

Tokyo Scout Holiday

I can’t believe it but in 2 weeks I am finally going to Japan! I’m so excited! I’ve been wanting to go since I was 9. I really hope the cherry blossoms are still there when I arrive.
I would love it if any one has any tips they’d like to share.

    Hi! I’m a fan of your blog, and I lived in Tokyo for the past year and half. I have some suggestions to share of great neighborhoods for walking through, & for browsing shops and cafes.

    Yanaka, Nezu and Sendagi — sometimes called the “Ya-ne-sen” area — are an older part of Tokyo with lots of quiet charm and history. There are quite a few traditional artisans’ shops selling handmade paper, pottery, woodworking, dyed textiles, etc., and some artsy cafes. Yummy street food vendors sell “tai-yaki” (fish-shaped sweet bean cakes), grilled meats, and other snacks along the Yanaka steps by the cemetery, and along Shinobazu-dori (a main street connecting those neighborhoods, and leading to the Ueno area).

    If you can get a good map, renting bicycles and cycling around Tokyo is really the best, especially when you can get away from the main thoroughfares. Tokyo Bike offers rentals from their shop near Sendagi station.

    The bustling restaurant stalls in front of Kichijoji station are fun for a night of casual eating, drinking, and making new friends — and there are a lot of cute clothing, interior goods, and vintage shops to visit around the side streets near the station there, too.

    Cafes along the riverbank, and vintage shops located on the “shoutengai” shopping street by Nakameguro station were another favorite of mine. And the Shimokitazawa area is another classic neighborhood not to miss — you can get an excellent coffee from Bear Pond Espresso there, and a green tea-dusted mini donut from Hara Donuts across the street, too :)

    A visit to CLASKA on Mejiro-dori (street) & strolling the side streets by Gakugei Daigaku station would make for another nice afternoon.

    Inokashira Koen and Yoyogi Koen are great parks for picnics and people-watching. I hope you get to see some cherry blossoms, and have a wonderful trip!

    And Aoyama book center is my favorite book store in Tokyo.
