Kahoko's recommended tour
8:30 At Tokyo Metro Tsukiji station.
Heading for Tsukiji, the biggest fish market in the world. So many fish, so many people,
,so many sushi restaurants. You can enjoy authentic sushi as brunch instead of later Asakusa
10:30 Walking to Ginza, one of the most sophisticated shopping zones in Tokyo. On the way to
Ginza, we can see Kabukiza,the theater for the traditional stage art,Kabuki. After strolling
around Ginza,we move to Asakusa.
11:45 Arriving Asakusa
It's always been a highlight of Tokyo sightseeing for its busy shopping arcade,Nakamise and
Senso-ji ,the oldest temple complex in Tokyo.
12:30 Lunch time. What shall we eat? Nothing is impossible here from a posh sukiyaki restaurant
to a reasonable noodle shop. Street food is another option. After lunch we take the subway
Omote-sando is originally the approach to Meiji-jingu . Now this stylish avenue is filled
with fancy designer shops and restaurants. Interestingly, just around the corner from
Omote-sando, we can find Takesita-dori, the famous teen fashion bazaar.
You'll see quite a few unique people in their eccentric fashion.
14:30 Visiting Meiji -jingu
It's one of the most prestigious shrines in Tokyo with solemn atmosphere.
In the precincts, there is a beautiful inner garden. If time allows, it's worth visiting.
You may be amazed with the tranquillity of the site even though it's in the busy district.
15:30 Now a long day is over. You must be content with full of experience, enjoyment, and
yes,exercise. Good job! Let me see you off at JR Harajuku station .
