i took a trip to Japan in march for 2 weeks, and I felt like it was so little time haha. Someone who likes the culture, the history, and the food I felt like I didn't even scratch the surface. I hope to be back soon.

OH BUT definitely go to Golden Gai for those who have never been. It’s sooo dope ! I went with my close friend n some Japanese girl we met and we got reallyyyy drunk there lol. We were on our 2nd bar n had 3 more to go to and I was already lit haha. Soo much fun . There’s this one specific bar that I recommend there , I forgot the name but there’s a guy who looks like a Japanese Wayne’sWorld inside and has a sci-fi/ horror themed bar inside . It’s sick ! He’s cool as hell too

I was only able to spend about a day and a half in Japan (YEARS ago when I was in the air force), and had to leave early due to a family emergency. I remember thinking how nice most people were that I met. From the girls in the kimono shop (we didn't understand each other's language, but they helped me pick out the kimono and sash), to the yakisoba restaurant, to the customer service at the airport....everyone was so nice. Watching this video, and your others as well, has rekindled my desire to take my wife to Japan and see some of the things I saw, and some others that I didn't get a chance to see. I want to show my her the beauty of Japan first hand. Excellent videos....very informative!

In Tokyo now after months of watching YouTube travel channels. Shibuya and Shinjuku sucks. It’s a bunch of drunk kids and sad depressed looking prostitutes dressed as maids holding up signs of their cost for the night with their high school aged pimps watching them

Y'all should try the ikebukero fire station it's a free course that you go to at a fire station and they show u how the earthquake felt with a simulation also escaping a fire induced place. It's a learning experience but really fun too. The earthquake felt strong 👍🏻.

I shared this on FB. This is excellent!
japan-guide.com (1 year ago)
japan-guide.com (1 year ago)
Good observations! It's always hard to find the perfect balance of sharing enough information vs too much information.
Marian Goldberg (1 year ago)
Two comments: (1) You should have mentioned that Sensoji was bombed during World II and was completely rebuilt to original specifications. (2) When you say that in 1868 when the Imperial capital was moved from Kyoto to Edo and Edo was renamed Tokyo, you should say what Tokyo means, i.e. "East Capital." Other than that, the video is REALLY GOOD.
John C Meyer (1 year ago)
I would add the Edo-Tokyo Museum and the Ghibli Museum to this list.
Just Fine (5 months ago)
What about a day trip to Nakamura?
Marian Goldberg (1 year ago)
The Edo Tokyo Museum is great, but it's in Ryogoku, the sumo wrestling area, and the video does not mention that area at all, likely because it's a little bit out of the Yamanote Line, which the video is using as a guideline for traveling around Tokyo and connecting neighborhoods. Also not mentioned are two trendy neighborhoods: Shimokitazawa and Nakameguro. These too are not along the Yamanote line. Surprisingly, UENO is not in the top five, although that is along the Yamanote Line. Ghibli is a pain to get tickets to, so I'm glad it was not mentioned.

Amazing! You practically set my trip to Tokyo in August altogether.
japan-guide.com (1 year ago)

A great attraction is the Tokyo National Museum, definitely worth visiting. If I remember correctly it's located in Ueno park.
japan-guide.com (1 year ago)
A good pick! Great recommendation.
Maxim Geeroms (1 year ago)
I am a little bit disappointed to not see the Tsukiji Fish Market in the list even though you mention nigiri sushi. For me it is the number 1 attraction Tokyo has to offer, with an unbelievable activity per square meter. Knowing that it will move to Toyosu sooner or later (larger, more hygienic, more organised but likely also a lot less charming), I recommend everyone who's coming to Tokyo to go to the inner market in the morning, before having sushi lunch in one of the many sushi restaurants, which doesn't have to be expensive (please stay away from chain stores). Regarding the observation decks, the World Trade Center close to Hamamatsuchou station and Kyu Shiba Rikyu garden offers a far better view than the Metropolitan Government Building. It is a 360° view, and there are no tourist shops, in contrast to the Government Building. You can even lounge in the sofas while watching the view. Height is approximately the same, they're both at the 40th/45th floor if I remember correctly. Tokyo Bay, Tokyo Tower, the Rainbow Bridge,... are better visible from here. It is not free, but 620 yen is definitely worth it and still cheaper than Skytree (which has the best view without a doubt, even though you don't see... Skytree), Tokyo Tower,... Another recommended observation deck is the Bunkyo Civic Center (26th floor, free, 270°) which offers a great view towards the west and the sunset behind Shinjuku and Mount Fuji especially during clear winter months. That being said, nice informative video, I also liked the one on Hakone.
Pixel Peach (7 months ago)
Maxim Geeroms they probably didn’t because the market is closing this year supposedly and it wouldn’t help for future viewers going to japan for the 1st time
projectmayhem94 (1 year ago)
Where in tokyo do you capture that timelapse at the end? I assume it's off a building.
japan-guide.com (1 year ago)
projectmayhem94 sadly, tripods are not allowed on the roof.
projectmayhem94 (1 year ago)
thanks, can anyone bring a tripod and film off it?
japan-guide.com (1 year ago)
Correct! It's from the very top of Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills. Here's more info on observation decks around Tokyo: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3057.html and here's some info about Roppongi HIlls specifically that you might find useful: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3031_hills.html
