Tokyo, Nice to meet you! Part 1

Finally after so many years of wishing and hoping, I finally visited Tokyo!

We were there for mere 3 days after visiting Hokkaido. 3 days is obviously NOT ENOUGH but nevermind la better than nothing!

We stayed in Toyoko Inn, Monzen Nakacho branch. It was a 8min walk to the subway station. 8 mins is not very long but it is considered long in the hot summer in Tokyo! The room is tidy and clean although they are of minimal size, I have no qualms about it. You guys can try their other hotels, they have it in many locations across Japan. The price is ranging from 9000yen I think. Check out their website for more details!

After resting for a while, we went to Ginza!

It was a Sunday so the whole road was closed. Check out how sunny it was!

We were famished so we had something to eat at Ginza Tenkuni, one of the restaurant recommend by our guide book.

Tempura on rice – this is so yummy! but I think rather expensive, probably about S$30 ish..

I was having a bad hair day but who cares, too excited! I AM IN TOKYO!

This pastry shop is also recommended by our guide book, their buns are soft and not too sweet!

All the branded shops are located in Ginza, you can definitely find the brand you are looking for!

Next up, we went to Tokyo Tower for Tokyo’s night scenery!
