Tokyo! This city wasn’t originally on our itinerary but when we saw that we had to do a layover in Tokyo, we discovered that the flight cost would be the same if we took a 3 day layover in Tokyo. Mike’s never been and I loved Japan the last time I went in 2007. This would definitely kill our budget, but it was essentially a “free” flight stop in Tokyo, so we took advantage of it.
Our first day, we walked around Shibuya and people watched at the famous crosswalk from the second floor of Starbucks. Thanks to Matt for the great viewing tip (and for the many other helpful tips for Tokyo)! We splurged on some pricey Starbucks and took at seat by the window.
It’s fun during the day but much more beautiful at night. There’s tons of shopping and food in the area.
