One day in Tokyo

A February 1998 trip to Tokyo by mannyb

Quote: I spend a day in Tokyo on my way to Guam. This city is exiting and you have to go to really understand this culture.

One day in Tokyo

Overview

Quote:
How do I start??? Well, after the initial shock of NOT understanding anyone around me, I took a bus to my hotel, walked around the central district called Shinjyuku and had an excellent dinner at the Hyatt Hotel. I will follow with a detailed explanation on what I did and what I recommend.

Quick Tips:

After going through customs, there are counters that offer rides to the center of Tokyo at a cheap price. Also, try to stay at the ring or around Shinjyuku-ku district, very centrally located.

Best Way To Get Around:

Well, I did use the subway once, but it is very confusing. I will try to walk or use taxis that are not extremely expensive.

Pearl Market

Attraction

Quote:
This is a store that only sells pearls. They have a tour that shows you all the manufacturing process up to the final product ready to sell. It is interactive and fun.

The tour gives you a complete view of mayor attractions and landmarks in Tokyo. You visit the Imperial Palace, Tokyo Tower, a Buddhist temple, and a walking tour of the shopping distict. A safe bet if you have little time in Tokyo.
