Tokyo Tourist Traps | Japan Travel Tips

  • Опубликовано: 16 фев 2017
  • 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 japan travel 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

    I was in Tokyo in 2006, but I would have never gone to Skytree even if it had been built back in 2000 or so. I am not a fan of waiting in line just to see anything. Great tips for people who want to go to Tokyo Japan. Now I wish a video like this one would have been able back in 2006 before I actually went to Tokyo. Thank you very much, for as much as I'd love to visit Japan again, I am old now and my job situation now does not allow me to do so--not to mention my health. Again thank you very much for this video.

    Hei, I'm totally agree about tokyo skytree. Its very expensive, wasting time for the qeue and the photo location is too crowded.
    The view is nice but not worthed.
    Takeshita street... The santa monica crepes is overhype.I think it's same with my country crepes.
    And I dont like takeshita street because the price for fashion item are too expensive for shooping street stuff. Better we buy branded things in shopping mall/ dept store

      To pay for being there e.g. pay 1,000 yen for the table then pay for whatever you order. But remember, no need to tip in Japan so...........

    SKYTREE IS AWESOME and well worth the visit. And definitely splurge and go up to the 450m observation deck (above the standard 350m deck). Where nearby Asakusa and Senso-ji Temple showcase the rich history and tradition of old Japan, Skytree represents the culmination of Japanese imagination, innovation, archtecture, and technology. Together, Asakusa and Skytree make a great day tour of both the past and future of this fascinating country.Also, I can't believe the host thinks Takeshita-dori has a lot of people. It's absolutely empty.....

    Hello! Thank you for the lovely video!♥I'm actually on the prowl for some of the alley way streets\Yokocho like that we saw a glimpse of in your video! I would really appreciate hearing any suggestions for ones that are VERY picturesque and focus maybe more on food than bars? In either Tokyo or Kyoto. :) I'm hoping to capture of few for a publication, and would love your help, with credit of course for the advice! Thanks so much for any and all help!

    I went to the sky tree about 2 hours before closing and it was so calm and empty, It was def worth the money going all the way up, it was so beautiful even though it was dark you saw so far away. Also they had like music at the top and a really cool photograph booth! Besides that, when me and my boyfriend was in Tokyo we walked around all day long, we walked abot 10-14 hours a day and went to so many places and did soooo many activities. I really got to see the whole city. But since we walked so much we also saw many hidden streets and shrines and areas where not many tourists visit and it was great although my feet were bleading! I truly recomment Tokyo, it's my best trip so far!

    The lady at the end did say she respects the fact that Japanese don't speak English! But she has a point though: for a developed country the level (or serious lack there of) of people's language skills is abominable!!! Not even ten basic words... Sad indeed!! (For your information: I am a EU citizen and speak 3,5 languages - of which Japanese is the 0,5!)

    the video filmed in harajuku when ti was "crowded" looked like a weekday morning or before eveyrhing was open. Most cities look like that on weekdays.... on the weekend in harajuku its impossible without walking as if youre in a sardine can and if you try "swimming" up on the wrong side its even more impossible....
    Tokyo disneylands lines only being 90-100 mins isnt that bad... If you go during a holiday weekend or Halloween week for example the lines can be 3-5 hours.
    I liked going up tokyo tower because its about half he price of sky tree and i liked the sky tree mall better for shopping.
    The cat cafes in ikebukuro are also pretty unfun. They were pure bred cats that were lazy and just wanted to go back into their glass rooms. They wouldnt even move for or bother eating treats.
    Anyway, i agree with the rooftop starbucks in harajuku spot. When its really clear i think you can see Mt. Fuji.
