    Tsukiji Fish Market

    4.5
    80 reviews

    Very impressive. Had the best sashmi of my life there at one of the little restaurants in the market area. I went with my friend Kanako, she is Japanese and went to college in Tokyo but she had never been. We both loved it! Definitely worth seeing if you are in Tokyo!

    Temple of the Golden Pavilion (Kinkakuji)

    4.5
    84 reviews

    The zen garden here is imbued with the utmost quiescence, and appropriate humility to balance the grandeur of the pavilion. Tourist railings covered in hand-split bamboo are a little distracting, a modern, albeit lawsuit-deflecting necessity. Would love to walk the trails "un-corralled" but c'est la vie. Amazing place, visit and meditate. Truly contemplative. Made my heroin come-down that much easier. ...

    Akihabara

    4
    70 reviews

    This place is, well, weird. It's an uneasy mix of straight-edged, clean-lined technology, unsavory manga, and sweaty-palmed voyeurism. That said, it is undeniably interesting. It's a great place to pick up English title video games, ogle at the latest household kit, and do some duty-free spending. On a Sunday, the main street is closed to traffic which makes for much ...

    Roppongi Hills

    4
    53 reviews

    Great place to get a sense of the city, as Roppongi Hills is situated on a hill overlooking the city and Tokyo Tower. The Roppongi area used to be the base of SCAP following WWII, and you can still see the impact of the American presence there. Go to the Observation Deck of Mori Building. Also - There are a ...

    Fushimi Inari Shrine

    5
    41 reviews

    This place is beautiful and larger than I expected. It was not the type of place where there is only 1 photo spot and once you see it you're done, but it's a beautiful and peaceful walk (went when it was raining so very few people) and it's mesmerizing.

    One of the heavy hitters on the Kyoto temple circuit and certainly one you should visit if you only have limited time in Kyoto. Beautiful wooden temple. Extremely popular with visitors to Kyoto.

    Very cool to watch the street crossing. There is a Starbucks with a second floor that overlooks the street. A great place to take a short break while passing through the area.

    This was a lovely stroll. Not too hard, very pretty temple. We caught the tail end of a ceremonial procession, which was very interesting. It's not hard to get to, is right next to a subway and very close to Harajuku!

    Miyajima

    4.5
    28 reviews

    Love the deers roaming freely, the quaint shops and delicious local delicacies. Main attraction is the Torii of Miyajima island, the beloved icon of Japan, (to me) a symbol of hope and love for Hiroshima.

    Nijo Castle

    4
    31 reviews

    Having watched way too many chanbara samurai movies, it was amazing to visit the castle where power was transferred back to the Meji Emperor at the end of the Tokugawa era. The squeaking of the nightingale floors brings one back to a romanticized era when ronins and assassins flit through corridors... (yes, over-active imagination)

    Standing at 634m, Tokyo Skytree is the world’s tallest broadcasting tower, the country’s tallest landmark, and the second tallest manmade skyscraper ever built, after Burj Khalifa in Dubai. A pretty impressive record!

    Reached there when it opened and came out after it closed. Its too much fun. Best attractions - Space Mountain, the parades and the fireworks. Don't forget to click a photo next to million smiles. Avoid weekends. Vegetarians - carry own food.

    Tokyo Imperial Palace

    4
    32 reviews

    A trip to Tokyo should involve a visit to the Palace gates/bridge. While the grounds are only open to the public at 2 times a year, the inner and outer grounds are free to walk. If you're having a picnic the view of the city around is great as well. It's a bit difficult to get in and out to, ...
