Japanese Lanterns

Japan

The trip to Japan was a whirlwind and went by fast. I can't wait to return to explore more of the country. Here are some fun things we did.

Tokyo Skytree: A broadcasting and observation tower in Sumida, Tokyo. It's the tallest structure in Japan at 2,080 ft. The views are incredible, be sure to check out the gallery and giftshop. 

Sensoji Temple Asakusa: Tokyo's oldest temple. It's an ancient Buddhist temple located in Asakusa. It's an amazing experience I struggle to put into words, but I distinctly remember the sweet smell of the incense. 

Kawaii Monsteer Cafe, located in Harajuku. This unique café is a treat for the senses. Fantastic colors and sweet treats are all around this trippy land of mushrooms! You'll see magical unicorns drinking from baby bottles as you sip your cocktail under a mushroom canopy. If you choose to enjoy lunch and a drink here, be sure to stay for the show. 

Mori Art Museum, located in Roppongi. Not only is it a great contemporary art experience, but the views of the city are spectacular!

Fun and games: Let loose and have some fun! I recommend giving Pachinko a try, but be warned it is loud in there! Be sure to wander into an arcade because you'll likely win some cute prizes, and don't forget to take silly pictures in one of the many photo booths. Karaoke and Chuhai (girly lemon-flavored alcoholic drink) will guarantee a good time, so cut loose with your crew!
