Having lived and worked in Tokyo I find your perspective on the city very interesting. I return there every couple of years due to family and always discover something new however often I visit. I’m going to do a five city tour this coming Christmas and will try to do a series on my blog Sketches in Travel. One piece of advice I would give is that if you have friends living there, use them, especially locals. They will take you to places that are off the beaten tourist track and help to discover the real Japan.

Hi Gavin. We actually did stay with friends in Tokyo. They were a huge help, especially because English is not widely spoken.

Thats very true. Fortunately they do most signs in English which can be a great help. Once you head an hour or two outside Tokyo it becomes a very different place. I’m glad you enjoyed visiting as Japan has a very special place in my heart. I hope when I finally get to write about it in my blog that I will do it justice, as you have done.

Sorry for not replying sooner. I’m currently in Japan and doing a number of posts on this trip. Will be looking at your posts as a guide. Please when you get a moment take a look and see what you think.

When I went to Japan I spent two days in Tokyo and I hit every single one of these! Great list!
