Trip Moments

I saw the Tokyo Tower in a Japanese drama; the tall tower of red and white that kept silent watch over the city. Most of the romance scenes in the drama were set at the foot of the Tokyo Tower. It seems as though the Japanese have associated a particular feeling with the tower; one of intimacy and romance. Similar to the “Tokyo Love Story,” the first time I visited Tokyo was when I visited the tower in the middle of the night, and it was made complete when I climbed it. Many people recommend going to visit the Tokyo Tower when in the city. If you visit Roppongi’s Tokyo City View, you will have a great view of the tower. It is beautiful with its red lights intertwining and joining together with the projection lights. When you look at the Tokyo Tower, you will also be able to see the Tokyo Skytree looming in the distance. The observation deck has no indoor lighting, making the night scene mesmerizing and incredibly intimate.

Ueno Park is a must-go for anyone looking to witness the Tokyo cherry blossom viewing and it takes around 3 minutes from the Keisei Ueno Station to the park. A lot of people visit from Tokyo to see the cherry blossoms. The place is lively with people eating cherry blossom cakes and drinking tea amid the beautiful backdrop of the flowers. The Park contains a shrine of Toshogu where the three generals of the Tokugawa family are worshipped. The shrine hall and cherry blossom scene is beautiful and must be seen to be believed! It's a great place to click pictures and relax. If you want to experience the atmosphere of the Tokyo cherry blossoms, come here!

It’s been the third time I have visited Tokyo. The first place I always go to is Sensoji Temple. I never plan to go there, but while passing by, I always end up going inside and asking about my fortune. Asuka Temple is always the liveliest place in Tokyo. There is always a constant stream of tourists from all over the world. You will find a group of girls with various skin tones wearing kimonos and spot a few people on the side taking selfies. It is a very interesting scene to take in and the memory always has a special place in my heart.

Around seven years ago, I enjoyed a nice night in Tokyo, opposite the Tokyo Tower. I climbed the lighthouse and took pictures of the city. These last three are taken by the banks before my cruise - near Osaka and Yokohama. The ship had undocked and was going to the next unknown destination. The Tokyo Tower is a popular landmark in the city and is located in the Shiba Park in Tokyo, at a height of close to 332.6 metres high. It is generally used to transmit waves for TV and radio while also sending JR train stop signals whenever a major earthquake occurs. There are other instruments available as well, including a wind direction and speed measurement device, temperature measurement and a navigation mark.

A sacred place for animation and video games, Akihabara is one of the most popular areas for serious gamers. The anime over here is beautiful and extremely detailed with the culture transcending to the way locals dress and behave as well. Every girl here is dressed fashionably and there are cosplayers at every corner of the streets. It is truly a paradise for anyone looking to enjoy this electronics hub in Tokyo. You can find some of the best video games along with second-hand trading places where you can bargain as well. There are some spots that sell rare games as well.
