I thought I would make a post about my top three places in Tokyo. It will maybe help some of you who are planning to visit Tokyo. But sadly there is still a lot of places in Tokyo that I still haven’t visited so this is just the top spots of the places that I actually have been to.🗾
3. Omotesando, Harajuku
The first spot is the Omotesando/ Harajuku area. This area is perfect for shopping! They have a lot of different shopping streets, such as the famous Takeshita Dori. You will also find mall’s like Laforet and the unique and modern Tokyu Plaza. This area is also filled with many cafés, from cute cozy ones to unique ones like the norwegian café Fuglen, the Kawaii monster café, and owl cafés. Tokyu Plaza also has a nice rooftop Starbucks. (o^▽^o)

🍬The Kawaii Moshi Moshi Box/ information box in Harajuku🍬
The famous Takeshita Dori. You have to be aware that it is always crowded here! But it is totally worth a visit!! (*^^*)♡
2. Oshiage ♡
I highly recommend this spot! We lived in this area when we were in Tokyo. This was a really cosy and quiet area, although it is filled with famous spots like Tokyo Sky tree and Tokyo Solamachi. My favorite place was the area around Tokyo Solamachi, the area had a really nice relaxing atmosphere!❤
This is definitely the perfect dating spot!♡(｡- ω -)
Sky tree is really huge in real life!!
Local supermarket called Life. You can also find convenient stores like Lawson, Family mart and 7eleven everywhere. (*^ ᵕ ^*)

There is a really nice area behind Tokyo Solamatchi, with a stream and a cool atmosphere filled with locals.
1. Odaiba ♡
My number one spot is Odaiba which is actually an artificial island that is joined with the mainland by the well-known Rainbow bridge. This area is filled with shopping mall’s and outlet’s. There is also a really nice park+beach here filled with locals and tourist, and in all a really nice atmosphere. Even though it is an island, you can easily get here by taking the subway.

✨I totally recommend staying here untill it gets dark. The area is beautifully lit up at night.✨
Aqua City and The Fuji TV building at night.
One of the worlds largest ferris wheels.🎡
Venus Fort is a shopping mall in the style of a 18th century European town. The mall has a lot of shops, fashion boutiques, cafés and restaurants. They also have some outlet shops.
