Tokyo, Japan’s busy capital,a city that is always on the move , mixes the ultramodern and the traditional, from neon-lit skyscrapers to historic temples.Tokyo is weird, wonderful, and at times completely wacky – but that is precisely what makes it such a sought after city for international visitors.

What to do in Tokyo for 24h to 48h?

Top Choices in Tokyo

Cherry Blossom in Yoyogi-kōen

Tokyo Layover -Yoyogi Koen

This one is my absolute favorite. If you love warm sunny afternoons and pretty flowers, this is the place for you !This beautiful park witnesses a variety of events from crowd lazing around the large grassy expanse to festivals taking place on the plaza across from the park and parties that go late into the night.

Meiji-jingū

Tokyo Layover - Jingu Shrine

Dedicated to the late 19th-century emperor who opened Japan to the West, Tokyo’s most famous Shinto shrine is wonderfully serene and austere, not colorful or flashy like other Asian places of worship.Stop at the cleansing station where you can dip into a communal water tank and purify your hands and mouth before offering up a prayer. You can write wishes on little pieces of paper and tie them onto the prayer wall, or do as the locals do — toss some yen into the offering box, bow your head twice, clap twice, and bow once more. On Sunday mornings you are likely to see a traditional wedding procession (or two) through the courtyard.

Nezu museum

The Nezu museum is a private collection of Japanese and Asian art – from calligraphy to painting, ceramics and textiles. Upon every turn of the numerous winding paths, you can see a new garden lantern, memorial stone, Buddha or Kan’non statue. The garden also has some well-preserved tea houses. Near the main building, you can find a modern cafe. The wide window front on three sides let’s you enjoy the garden while having a light lunch or coffee and cake.

 

Mt Fuji

Tokyo Layover-Mt Fuji

After enjoying all of the chaos and craziness that is Tokyo, allow yourself one day to get out of the hustle and bustle and escape to nearby Mt. Fuji to view the impressive mountain where many Japanese and foreign guests make their climb to the summit each year.

Whilst here enjoy great views from Lake Kawaguchi and visit from the gift store.

Shopping in Tokyo

Omote-sandō

Tokyo Layover-Ometo Sando

It’s a fashionable strip lined with high-end boutiques. Those designer shops come in designer buildings, which means Omote-sandō is among the best places in the city to see contemporary architecture.

Harajuku

It is the center of Japan’s most extreme cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for adults and some historic sights.

The focal point of Harajuku’s is Takeshita Street and its side streets, which are lined by many trendy shops, fashion boutiques, used clothes stores, crepe stands and fast food outlets geared towards the fashion and trend conscious teens.

Nightlife in Tokyo

Live Band Karaoke at Studio Himawari  Tokyo Layover-Studio Himawari

Karaoke is a Tokyo night out staple, but somewhere in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho area, it is served with a twist.Let Studio Himawari feed your inner rockstar. There’s a band, a stage, a mic stand, food, and booze to last you until 7 AM. Pick a song and wow the crowd, either through sheer vocal prowess or something else like stage charisma.

Shinjuku Copa Bowl

Bowling the night away at Shinjuku Copa Bowl is made more fun by a disco ball, some party music, black lights and glow in the dark balls and pins. If your group is the energetic bunch, this activity will certainly keep you moving until the break of dawn.
