Tokyo Travel Diary 2018

Currently in...Tokyo, Japan


My first trip to Japan was nothing short of magical...

Looking back on Sam and I's first trip to Japan, I can't help but think slash SCHEDULE another adventure back. 

Where to stay: Sam and I stayed at a beautiful hotel in Ginza called The Celestine. Not only was the hotel in a great location, close to numerous shopping strips/centres, amazing architecture, but also Tokyo's main train station (aka your holy grail to getting around!). If you're into spacious and calm spaces, in what is essentially a very tiny and hectic city, this is the place for you.

Where to shop: Shopping will be the least of your worries, because as I quickly found out, there are amazing shops, vintage consignments and high street faves around every single corner. Think the city centre for shopping centre faves (a 5 story Zara, flagship H&M, etc), Ginza for all your high end dreams (Saint Laurent, Fendi, Dior - the most beautiful store fronts that'll make you think you're in NY), and Shibuya for all things street (Supreme, BAPE, Rinkan - a store filled with Yeezy, Off-white and Vetements; major major vibes!). If you're after typical Japanese culture, don't forget Harajuku. 

Where to eat: Sam and I had one thing on our minds when it came to food in Tokyo - RAMEN OR NOTHING. As we went in January when the weather is at a consistent 10 degrees (freeezing!), sushi or anything raw and cold was the furthest thing from our minds/stomachs! It had to be hot, hot and more hot. Basically you don't need my advice in this aspect, everything tastes good. 

Where to play: One word. Disneyland. 

Have you been to Japan before? If so, I would love to hear about it!
