We fell in love with Tokyo during our first Tokyo trip. It’s dense, wild, delicious, electric, friendly and just flat-out wonderful. While there last month, we were awed by the quality and quantity of, well, everything. There’s just so much ‘there’ there.

Favorites From Our First Tokyo Trip
There are so many reasons to visit Tokyo. These are our favorites:
No matter where we went, we were struck by the toilets. Yes, the toilets. They’re heated, they wash you, they’re self-cleaning and they play music. They’re pretty freaking awesome.
We clearly love food when we travel. The food in Tokyo did not disappoint. Turns out there’s good sushi there.
Plus, we learned not to confuse green tea powder with wasabi. Oops!
Tokyo Department Stores
Great food abounds in Tokyo, even in train stations and department stores. Especially in department stores.
However, department store fruit is really expensive.
Sometimes it’s fun to just chill, have a beer and eat “regular” food at an izakaya.
It’s always important to save room for dessert, especially in a city with so many patisseries.
Tokyo Fruit Shakes
It’s okay to eat (or drink) healthy on occasion.
Tokyo Vending Machines
In Tokyo, you’re never more than a block away from a refreshing beverage.
Or a coffee.
Colorful shopping is everywhere.
The people in Tokyo are as colorful as they are gracious.
Tokyo Cross Walks
There are some busy crosswalks.
Crowded subways are not a myth.
However, there are always interesting people watching opportunities on the subways.
Tokyo Cherry Blossoms
Sakura season is pretty.
Tokyo the City
Tokyo is an enormous city. It’s like ten Manhattans!
This was our first trip to Tokyo, but not our last. As for now, we’re shopping for a Japanese style toilet…
