Tokyo Tourist Traps | Tips For Travel In Japan

Here is a Japan travel guide on some of the tourist traps in Tokyo and some places you could avoid in Tokyo. I hope the tips and advice gives you a heads up before travelling to Japan and makes your trip a smoother one! :)

Places mentioned in order:

Option: Instead of paying to go up the tower, enjoy Tokyo Tower from the surroundings
- Shiba Park (Shiba koen)
- Zozoji Temple

or go up other places for free views of Tokyo
- Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (in Shinjuku)
- Carette Shiodome
- Bunkyo Civic Center
- Carrot Tower (in Sangenjaya)

Option: Check out the back streets, hidden paths and traditional places
- Brahms Path
- Harajuku Street (Back streets with vintage shops, second hand shops, hipster hangouts etc)
- Tokyu Plaza Rooftop
- Meiji Shrine
- Yoyogi Park

Option: Look at sky tree from other view points and take a short 15 minute stroll to Asakusa
- Solamachi 30th Floor
- Asakusa

Option: Instead of paying the high table charge, check out local Japanese yokocho (back alleys filled with tiny bars and restaurants)
- Shibuya Nombei Yokocho
- Shinjuku Omoide Yokocho
- Ebisu Yokocho
- Sangenjaya Chitai Yokocho
- Yurakucho Sanchoku Inshokugai

Phewwww... that was a lot to write haha, if you read up to here - you are the BEST!! Leave me a comment with your favourite emoji!

Hi Angela, Thanks for this video! Just got back from Japan. Took your advice and headed to the Tokyo Metropolitan building which was excellent - No lines at all! I've just put some vlogs of our Japan experiences up on my channel, check it out if you feel like having a look!

5:30 Tokyo Skytree, it wasnt busy when I went there during cherry blossom. But the line indoor was still 45min+ so I end up buying the foreign fast-track tickets. :L

Thank you for the upload. I have visited Japan 3 times. Unfortunately I wasn't able to eat at the small restaurants we see around 8:20 in this video. I want to try them out the next time I visit. However, the problem is my very very limited ability to communicate in Japanese...so any advice you can give to a tourist there?

Автор Nick Tl ( назад)
I'm vegan and I was worried about the fact that I wouldn't find anything to eat if I went to Japan but the lady at the end said she had no problems so I'm quite happy about it... but I'll do further research anyways

When I came to Japan last year (October), I went to Sky Tree on a weekday, very early morning (9AM), no line, no wait. I highly recommend if you have the option, you do the same, but I think you also should be aware of when you're going (I was obviously going during a more "off season" time period in general since it was October).

Loved the view (clear skies all the way around), took tons of pics. Obviously missed sunset or night-time view, but glad I went at the time I did to avoid the masses.

Overrated-> Cat Cafes.... the cats are just too accustomed to being petted all day.
Underrated- Gotokuji Temple... not your run of the mill temple :3

Автор JY J ( назад)
Wow thanks for your information. I've been to Japan 4 times(I am a Korean woman) the alternative places you recommended look so much interesting. I was lucky to go to Skytree just after it built(no crowd at all)

Автор nekomarulupin ( назад)
My favorite view in Tokyo is actually from the Sunshine 60 in Ikebukuro. Its fairly cheap to get to the top, and you can get a good view of pretty much everywhere in the city, and it's pretty cool looking down on the rest of Ikebukuro at night. The only downside is the windows aren't that big there.

I really like your video and the tip with the nice side shop street, I have been several times in Tokyo so I´m getting out of ideas where to go......
I have been to the Goverment building, Tokyo tower and also Skytree for the view. For me probably the favorate was Tokyo tower. The goverment building is for me a bit out of hand and there isn´t anything nice around. Skytree is too crowded and I feel also the shops are a bit expensive, at least for me. I liked the Tokyo tower the most, it´s smaller, kinda nostalgic, there are floors with shops (tho smaller than in Skytree), which are a bit cheaper because that are chinese turist shops, at least the lady where I buyed was chinese. And I buyed nice shirts for 1000 yen each and they are still good quality. And you can easily combine with the temple and park walk.

Just came back from japan takeshita street and harajuku in general to me was a overrated, I wanted to see more authentic youth styles there but instead I saw a lot of other tourists they did have a lot of cool shops there though. but all in all japan was an amazing place the people are so nice and everything felt so clean.

"A lot of people don't speak english"
Oh I'm sorry, your in japan not in an english speaking country.
Only because english is widespread doesn't mean everyone HAS to know it. Every country have their own language and for the lady to see it as a downside is ridiculous. This lady is way full of herself.
I understand that everyone is proud of their culture, but don't push or impose your culture on others.
So what if in Japan they don't speak English? It's not their language anyway and I actually admire them for protecting their culture rather than melt in and give in completely to globalization and forget their own identity.

I really want to visit, but I have a different setup in mind. I really would love to check out smaller places. Nice cozy rural areas. Maybe visit the countryside of things too. I really would like to go out of my way to enjoy something rather than let the help of the internet decide everything for me (as far as the populated spots go).

I just don't really want to be that typical tourist who has to do everything in a guide. The areas you shown that didn't have a lot of people were definitely places I would want to check out. I still want to check out Tokyo by itself too. It looks amazing. I just want to check out everything! :)

I went to both Tokyo Tower and Sky Tree. Both at night and the Sky Tree was during a rain storm so I was very underwhelmed.

Going to the back streets of Harajuku is the best advice! I was so tired of the crowds, after eating a crepe with my husband, we explored that area, and found the best clothes there.

When they said traps I they were talking about transgender

Автор cqdude01 ( назад)
I totally agree with all your points, though I have to keep reminding myself that Japan can be a really novel experience to any first time visitor. I guess it really is all about what you want... To me, getting carried along with the crowds on Takeshita Dori at the weekend is bound to be a very unique experience for most first time visitors.

BTW, you get a very nice view of Tokyo Tower from the lobby floor of the Park Hotel Shiodome.

I missed the Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower while I was in Tokyo, and after seeing this video, I am glad I did. We didn't have specific plans and wandered around, and actually ended up seeing all those back streets and roof top area (enjoying a cup of Starbucks up there) in Harajuku. Ended up seeing a lot of cool places that are not normally advertised as tourist places (sometimes ending in restaurants/places that seemed very surprised to see American tourists).

if you are from third world countries, and goes to this kind of city, it's kind of attraction itself, how it's so neat, you should compare it jakarta or bangkok

It boggles my mind that Tokyo Tower is a tourist spot. It's just a fucking antenna tower, and not even a very good one at that - as evidenced by the kerfuffle resulting from the switch to digital tv. I spose the observation decks are interesting? Maybe?

thanks so much i will avoid these spots when i come to tokyo. SO EXPENSIVE

Disneyland/sea is also a trap the lines are 3 hours long for some if ur looking to go on rides then it's a waste of time but if ur going to take pictures of the decor then it will be for u

So is it just that one street in Harajuku that is a tourist trap that isn't as kawaii culture as it's made out to be? I follow a lot of Jvloggers, photographers, etc that show off tons of pictures of Kawaii culture in Harajuku and some of my friends in Japan say it's still pretty visible in that area
