TOKYO

shinjuku_street If you've been following my Instagram & Snapchat (@yang.tiffany), you will notice that I was still in Tokyo a few days ago. So this weekend, I decided to edit my photos and share them with you. This trip was planned last year, we were suppose to visit Tokyo for christmas, but something came up. By the way, its been quite a while since I travelled with my entire family, so I was really looking forward to this trip.

The trip was great, and I'm surprised that the bad weather didn't really influence our mood at all. We did so much walking that I'm sure my legs want to murder me, I also shopped a bit, can't wait to share my new-ins here at TLG.

As for tips on travelling in Tokyo, I really recommend downloading travel apps, I use Tokyo Subway, which is super useful, because it helps you plan the shortest subway routes. And you all know that I love using Trip it to organise my bookings (read about it here). 

Our hotel is located in Shinjuku (Tokyo Keio Plaza Hotel-they provide free shuttle buses to Disneyland! how good is that?!) I think the location is pretty convenient, the nearest subway station is only 5-10 mins away, plus, it is surrounded by a couple of delicious restaurants and supper choices, such a major plus!

The streets in Tokyo are extremely clean, and the food is wonderful! We had so much good food that in one point I really hope I live there. We had an amazing time, if only I could understand Japanese, then I'll be able to embrace the culture a bit more. Five days is not enough to explore Tokyo at all, there's still so much I want see and experience, maybe I should plan for a longer trip next time, perhaps next year :) 


說老實的,其實對東京一點也不陌生,因為有朋友在當地的關係,一年最少會造訪個一次,不過每次的感覺卻還是不太一樣。相同的目的的,幾年下來,還是體驗到了一個城市的微妙轉變。這次的旅行,雖然又是到東京,卻比先前格外期待,畢竟上一次我們全家人能夠有時間一起旅遊已經是好久以前的事了。

這次真的是舊地重遊,下榻的飯店一樣 (京王廣場飯店),餐廳也沒特地去嘗鮮,反倒是回味了不少我們一致公認是來日本一定要吃的美食。從道樂的螃蟹大餐一直到米其林三星的天婦羅 七丁目 京星,都是以前就去過,但到現在還是好喜歡的店家。很喜歡這樣的感覺,雖然少了一趟旅程多少該有的刺激感,卻多了不少悠閒安逸的節奏,簡單但不無聊,五天就這麼舒舒服服的過去了。

若是一定要雞蛋裡挑骨頭,那就是這次到日本,天氣很不聽話,雨不停地下,有時侯真的滿不方便的,不過也讓我們幸運地躲開了迪士尼樂園一直以來的人潮,排隊玩設施時間幾乎都減半。

旅遊最吸引人的地方就是在於,除了能夠體驗新的事物外,還可以同時為平時的生活做好準備,往前邁進。在東京的這五天,我給自己充上了滿滿的電,在下個禮拜的實習工作中繼續努力!
