In a few hours I’ll be on a flight to Tokyo. I booked the flight about two weeks ago on a bit of whim. Flights were cheap-ish and I had a window of opportunity to get away.
My introduction to Tokyo was just over four years ago—about the same time Lost in Translation came out (love that movie). The trip was for business and the time spent was less than 48 hours. It was love at first sight and I vowed to go back on my on dime and time and explore.
Haven’t had too much time to plan what I’d like to do while there, although good food and photography are always a priority. No worries, the 13-hour flight will offer ample opportunity to read up on this dynamic metropolis.
If there are any Tokyo fans out there reading this I’d love to hear about your favorite things to do there.
