I am the luckiest person right now. After posting my Snapshots of Tokyo, I actually got to go back AGAIN! We had a second show to do at Shop Channel, so I had to just pop over again to host!
Hamming it up on live TV as always!
Sights and sounds of Akihabara – Which frankly isn’t my favourite place. I can handle busy when there’s something to see, but most of Akiba was somewhat boring. And filled with creeps. So it looks cool, but not my place.
Asakusa is most definitely my sort of place though! Filled with tradition and the gorgeous Senso-Ji temple, it was a beautiful area. Many young people turned up in brightly coloured yukata, too – which was a delight to see.
The Nakamise shopping street that leads up to the temple is wonderful, too! The shops are filled with little trinkets and tourist tat, which is my favourite sort of tat.
I spend most of my time in Tokyo drinking coffee (jet lag is a bitch) and wandering around shops. I have now visited every Pokémon Store in Tokyo in order to buy things for my brother and sister in law, but I also did a bit of fabric shopping for myself at Okadaya in Shinjuku!
These are some of my favourite photos from the whole trip – and yes! That’s the first signs of cherry blossoms at Shinjuku Gyoen, which has to be my favourite place in Tokyo so far, it’s so peaceful!
