Tokyo Travel and Travel Photography Summary

In this page I will list some important points I learned during the trip to Tokyo.

Travelling :

  • Two days is NOT enough to visit every great tourist spots in Tokyo. Plan for some 4 days or even more if you plan to shop a lot.

  • Tokyo is probably very expensive for some, but get real, you should not expect to save money during traveling, otherwise the trip itself may be incomplete and you'll regret later. Expect to spend some significant amount of money in eating, transportation, and souvenirs.

Day 8 (March 18th) - Departure back to Jakarta

Because we were a little bit late to wake up and pack the things and have some breakfast, we were quite late to depart from the hotel, but managed to catch the 9 AM airport express in the Tokyo Station. The train departed just right after we hop onto it.

Day 7 (March 17th) - Downtown Tokyo (East Part) : Ueno, Ginza, Tsukiji, Asakusa, Akihabara

Our last effective day in Tokyo was spent traveling the eastern part of Tokyo. We went down to have a breakfast in the hotel's restaurant, and followed Mr. Raymond's suggestion of walking to Akihabara for its closer station location.

Day 6 (March 16th) - Downtown Tokyo (West Part) : Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya

This is the last day of our stay in Hilton Tokyo Bay. We had our breakfast, packed our things, and went to the Monorail station. Switched a couple of trains before we made it to Ochanomizu station and walked to the Green Hotel Ochanomizu, Tokyo.
