Fun fact, I’ve never been on a trip before where the itinerary wasn’t already set up for me until this Tokyo trip. That being said, it was both thrilling and stressful having to think about where to stay, where to eat, and where to go for the 5 days of my trip. Luckily, I enjoy looking up new places to go to and restaurants that are known to have really good food, even though it was quite a stressful thing to do, I enjoyed most of it.

Since I went to Osaka and Kyoto last summer, my sister and I decided to go to Tokyo. I was mainly excited for the shopping culture and the vibes that the city has. There’s definitely a unique charm that Tokyo gives off and I feel like 5 days wasn’t enough to truly take it all in. The first day consisted of us settling into our airbnb and exploring the central Shinjuku area since our airbnb was very close to it. The second day was a busy day. We headed off to the National Art Center of Tokyo to see the Renior exhibition. I wasn’t able to take any pictures inside but I actually enjoyed not being able to do that because I was really able to appreciate the works right in person without being busy taking photos of everything. Then we were off to Odaiba, where we saw the Rainbow Bridge, the little version of Statue of  Liberty, went to Aqua City, and Venus Fort. I also went on the massive Ferris Wheel that they have there. Before actually stepping foot into it, I was completely fine and even excited to see the night view of the city. Soon later, once I was halfway up I had a major panic attack and literally was on my knees in fear. I don’t think I would ever go on a ferris wheel in general again after it. If you’re not afraid of heights or the fear of it possibly breaking, I guess I would recommend going on the Ferris Wheel, I mean the view is definitely worth seeing.

That wraps up the first two days of my Tokyo trip. Stay tuned for part 2!

Sombra que não dá pra usar com água, na minha opinião, é porque é de qualidade ruim, feita com excesso de talco (daí a água não “entra” na sombra, parece). Julia, eu simplesmente AMEI a sua declaração sobre religião! Concordo com tudo!!! Beijos!!!!!!!
