If you think Sydney is a bustling metropolitan city, wait until you walk into Tokyo. To describe Tokyo in one word is almost impossible as each angle of it varies from the other.
Our day usually starts with hopping onto the subway line (of which, makes travelling across the different suburbs superbly easy) and despite being packed like a can of sardines in the subway, we strangely enough, did not feel uncomfortable at all. Maybe because everyone is respectful towards each other and did not make any attempts at causing a ruckus? No talking on mobile phones, please!
Our first stop in Tokyo was Shibuya, not for shopping but for grabbing our 3 day tourist subway tickets from Bic Camera. These subway tickets will save you heaps of money if you intend on travelling around Tokyo for a few days.
We were fortunate to visit Japan during the sakura season. This is symbolic time as it represents a new phase of one's life and it is a highly regarded festive time of the year.
Day 2 in Tokyo begun with a quick trip to Tsukiji market, one of the most important fish markets in Tokyo. We arrived at around 10am and gosh, was it already packed full of people. You can certainly grab breakfast here but we thought it was more so a tourist trap. Prices are not exactly cheap and in terms of quality, let's just say I was not exactly blown away. But that's just my humble, personal opinion.
