Tokyo City Guide – Japan

Tokyo, Japan

Hove you ever discovered something that you always knew you loved, but only just learned existed? Something that you know, deep down inside, was the one thing you always felt was missing form your life?

All my previous years spent traveling could not have prepared me for this. Tokyo takes the most jaded, arrogant, egotistical of travelers and expands their horizons into a whole new realm of traveling. This is exactly where I was.

Capsule hotel: Cribs Japan

Check out my friend Shawn and his sick crib downtown Tokyo in the Asakusa district. Ok well it might just be a capsule but don’t be hating; it was the best capsule hotel we’ve stayed at! Why you ask? It was more Japanese than the locals staying there. Downstairs offered beautiful (Highly exaggerating) public baths. The capsules themselves were equipped with televisions that sometimes work and you guessed it! Came with complementary used plastic flip flops. Anyways enjoy this great video of Shawn’s crib that only costed 20 USD.

Why Travel To Japan

Japan is another world. It’s a world where modern meets traditional. From the impossibly bright neon lights of Tokyo, to the peaceful zen temples of Kyoto, one thing is for sure. Japan will leave you in awe. If the Japanese are known for two things it would be this. Hospitality and perfection. Hospitality being the countless smiles and generosity you receive from even the most unlikely of people. Perfection, deeply rooted in the Japanese culture, which shows in their sublime, perfectly edged gardens, and the everyday activities. From serving tea in a tea ceremony to simply cutting that perfect piece of sushi. I can promise you. You will never forget this place. Read More
