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.
I love visiting aquariums, and one that I like very much is Sunshine Aquarium in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. It’s located at the top floor AND the roof of a building in the middle of the city.
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.
One day in August 2013 I visited a cat café in Tokyo. Here are some photos!
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!
I have only visited one zoo in Japan so far, and that was Ueno Zoo in the middle of Tokyo. I wouldn’t mind going there again. It was a very nice zoo with many beautiful and some rare and exotic animals. The most famous are of course the pandas!
It’s only for 2.5 weeks of holiday, but it feels amazing to be back in Tokyo!
