In tokyo for 10 days, looking for exciting things to see/do? Maybe a good day trip out of the city too would be nice also:) any suggestions?
Im in japan for a few weeks tokyo more specifically, I'm flying solo but staying with a friend here in tokyo. Traveling alone is a bit daunting in japan and i was just hoping for some tips, suggestions of other people's experiences here:))! Arigato gozaimas!
10 days is quite a while to spend in Tokyo.There is a lot to do there but I'd definitely recommend taking 1 or 2 day trips while you're there. I too a train to Nikko which is a couple of hours north of Tokyo. There you will find endless shrines and some beautiful walks around the town. Okunikko National Park is about 20 minutes out of the town and has some spectacular waterfalls. about 6 years ago
In Tokyo, my favorite experience was seeing the Tuna Auction at the Tsukiji Market, if you can get in: http://transplantedtatar.com/2012/09/05/a-morning-in-tokyo-the-tuna-auction-at-the-tsukiji-market/ over 5 years ago
