Neon lights, green tea kit kats, manga, girl groups with 30-or-so members, Pokemon, Ghibli and of course temples. Tokyo is vivid, chaotic and exciting. In Japan, modern and traditional values co-exist and nowhere exemplifies this more than Tokyo. An Imperial Palace surrounded by skyscrapers. The bustling fashion-centric streets of Harajuku just 5 mins walk away from Meiji shrine. It offers the very best of both worlds. I returned to Tokyo for 3 and a half days to tick off some things I’d missed last time and to relive its electric atmosphere.
