[JAPAN] HONSHU: TOKYO MUST VISIT + TRANSPORTATION

Capital city of Japan, which full of balance between modern and classic traditional touch. Nothing i can't say for opening since sooooo many great blogger already share it for you (for sure) so i just gonna share my Tokyo days back then. I spent here with my boyfie for 4 days and i thought it was perfect not too long, neither too short. Depending on how great your time management is, but exploring Tokyo is not as complicated as i knew and i will make it simple for you!

TOKYO

HOW TO EXPLORE IT
Japan transportation fee can be a pocket bomb, super expensive. and Japan offers so many options for "cheap" transportation, i will not compare any here because it gonna make you having a headache. We used KEISEI SKYLINER + SUBWAY 3DAY PASS FOR ¥5400/person, this pass you can buy right at the airport ( Narita and Haneda) without reservation, and it will active since the first time you tap on the subway gate. It covers most all subway lines, except JR train and Disneyline. for more detail you can check their website and updated price here

BEST PLACE TO STAY
Too many areas HAHA personally we stayed in Agora asakusa hotel, near Sensoji area which very convenient, not so crowded as i expected but if you looking for shopping all day long crowds, you can stay around Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku area or Roppongi for exclusive choice.

MUST VISIT
TOO MANY PLACESSSSS TOO!!! Every season offers different places to be visited. and me summer nothing really ... interesting HAHA but here it is! 

#1 SENSOJI TEMPLE, TOKYO SKY TREE, SUMIDA RIVER
SUBWAY STATION : ASAKUSA ST.
can be said as #1 Tokyo must visit HAHA snacking along nakamise shopping street lead to one of biggest famous temple, Sensoji. Trying your luck with some sticks for  ¥100. And then walk away from crowd, enjoy walking around sumida river or take a cruise tour. and end the journey with go to the tallest building in Japan, Tokyo sky tree, but back then the weather was foggy so i didnt go up.

#2 AKIHABARA
SUBWAY STATION : AKIHABARA ST.
Game and anime lover, here is your heavveeeeen. I am not really into it, but my bro asked me to buy him a nintendo switch which much cheaper than everywhere in the world and just fun playing claw machine at Sega station, and gathered with the crowd.

#3 GINZA
SUBWAY STATION: GINZA ST.
Luxury area that nothing i can affort here *kidding **but true HAHA so every weekend, they held car free day along the road and its kinda fun and even you can't buy gucci or LV bags, you can buy some clothes at the biggest UNIQLO in Japan with 9 floors.

#4 OMOTESANDO
SUBWAY STATION: OMOTESANDO ST.
Hypeee area for cafe-ing and local brand hopping. super lovely area so far, since me and my boyfie came here around 9am, it was super calm and just peaceful. So many choices of cafes and pretty brunch places to explore and we visited BLUE BOTTLE, famous coffee chain and see my review here

#5 HARAJUKU
SUBWAY STATION :MEIJI-JIGUMAE ST.
Harajuku style? well, i expected to see some unique-dressed girls, but instead all korean-looked Japanese HAHA WHERE HARAJUKU STYLE!! along harajuku, i found mostly they sell korean stuffsss, like fila bags, hippies hoodie, etc, well i was lil bit confused with what's going on?HAHA

#6 SHIBUYA
SUBWAY STATION : SHIBUYA ST.
Who doesn't know famous Shibuya crossing? Take a mandatory photos from Starbucks HAHA and exploring area that offers so many stores and great food around. and don't forget Hachiko statue.

#7 TSUKIJI
SUBWAY STATION: SHINTOMICHO ST.
Mandatory fish market, top tokyo food bucket list!! for seafood hunter and street food lover, like me IT IS PARADISE! where you can eat grilled eel for IDR 40000? haha

#8 TOKYO TOWER
SUBWAY STATION : KAMIYACHO ST. / AKANABEMASHI ST.
Tallest building in Japan before Tokyo skytree built. Not really necessary it quite far from station but since i love my boyfie and he loves One piece, ok lor.. you can find Onepiece original store and dinning here.

#9 DISNEY
SUBWAY STATION : MAIHAMA ST.
