One place outside of Tokyo that I could go to over and over again is the island Enoshima. In May 2015 I went there for the third time, and I walked around most of the island and visited the aquarium.
One of the best outings I made during my trip to Tokyo in May 2015 was when I went with a friend to Showa Kinen Park in Tachikawa, about 30 kilometers west of central Tokyo.
I travelled to Japan for a little more than one week in August 2014. It was a week of concerts, musicals and meeting friends.
This incredibly beautiful garden is located right beside Tokyo Dome City, in the middle of Tokyo. It’s one of Tokyo’s oldest parks and gardens – the construction started in 1629 by the feudal lord Tokugawa Yorifusa.
During my last summer living in Tokyo I went on many short outings to have many memories to bring back with me to Sweden. I enjoyed (and still enjoy) walking along small roads in areas not very frequented by tourists.
At the end of July 2013 two of my friends came to Tokyo for holiday, so one evening we went together with a Japanese friend to an izakaya (traditional Japanese pub). I really like the atmosphere at izakayas, and the food is usually very different/exotic and tasty!
It’s only for 2.5 weeks of holiday, but it feels amazing to be back in Tokyo!
At the end of March and beginning of April of 2013 my family came to visit me in Tokyo. We did all sorts of things, and I showed them my favorite spots and the different sides of Tokyo.
When I lived in Tokyo between 2012-2013 we only had snow for one single day. Me and my room mate took the opportunity to build a snowman in the square outside the train station, to the amusement of the Japanese… Then eventually March came around, and I visited shrines and parks to enjoy the spring foliage.
It’s time to continue telling about things I experienced when I lived in Japan! On November 14, 2012 I went with my school on a school trip to Kamakura and Enoshima. It was a lovely day!
