17 Reasons Why I Am Excited About Tokyo, Japan

Hello Lovers! So I’m pretty excited to announce that I’ll be heading over to Tokyo, Japan in just a few hours! It’s a last minute trip, I booked it 2 nights ago after long debates with myself. Flights were just too cheap to pass up, only by the time I decided to actually book them they went up, but I was already sold on Tokyo, as I have been researching Tokyo for the past 2 weeks whenever I had a chance.

At first I wasn’t sure what I’d really do in Tokyo, Japan, but after researching I realized that there is an endless list of things to do and see, that even if I went on a 2 week trip I’m not sure I’d be able to see everything I wanted and needed to see. So here are 17 things I am excited about seeing and doing in Tokyo, Japan.17 Reasons Why I Am Excited About Tokyo, Japan

Let’s start with Harajuku – my interest for Tokyo came to life originally when Gwen Stafani decided to get a Harajuku squad and make the whole world curious about Tokyo. I was one of those people.

I am super excited about the fashion in Tokyo. Tokyo has one of the coolest and badass fashion in the world.

Cafes – Tokyo has some of the strangest and coolest cafes, literally in the world. They have a cafe calledOwl Cafe where there are wild Owls flying around you, while you dine. There is also a cat cafe, dog cafe, lizard cafe to name a few. I’m not sure how animals work with the food business, but I’d love to find out. (Read & watch my owl cafe experience: CLICK HERE)

Kawaii Monster Cafe If you haven’t heard of it, well it’s every girls dream come true! Look into it! DYING to go there! It’s like a Lisa Frank playground for adults plus food! They even have a rainbow pasta dish!

Electric Toilets everywhere! I’ve seen photos and these toilets do everything and more. They even have butt warmers!

Vending machines – Tokyo is known for having the craziest and coolest vending machines literally in the world! I can’t wait to find out what I’ll run into. I already saw a few during a layover in the airport in Tokyo and now I’m curious for more.

Japan is known for being one of the safest countries in the world and especially for women, so I’d love to feel that out.

 Character food – Tokyo is also known for having the coolest restaurants that offer food that’s shaped as different characters! This is a must do! I just love that it’s totally socially acceptable to eat food in Hello Kitty shape food as an adult.

Robot Restaurant is everything and more! It’s an electric light show where you can enjoy dinner, cocktails and some crazy futuristic stuff and amazing costumes. Booked it for my first night!img_1202

I’ve always seen those famous photos from the Shibuya Crossing and I just can’t wait to see it live! It’s said to be the busiest intersection in the world!

Play dress up! I’m excited to play dress up as a Harajuku girl. There is actually a place that you can do a photoshoot and get all dressed up like a Harajuku Lolita! AMAZING! (watch me turn into a Harajuku Girl: CLICK HERE)

I can’t wait to see the Harajuku shops and all the crazy costumes, shoes and outfits. I recently saw some on the new Chelsea Handler’s show on Netflix and I’m so curious about it.hofit kim cohen - vanilla sky dreaming tokyo japan

I’d love to see a real life Geisha! That would be amazing. Ever since I saw Memoirs of a Geisha, I’ve always been obsessed with Geishas.

Play Geisha! There is an actual place that will dress you up like a Geisha! You can do a photoshoot or simply rent a kimono and walk around the streets with it.

Sushi! Sushi all day every day! GOAL! But of course, it would have to be vegetarian sushi…I wonder how that’s going to work out for me. (didn’t work out so well)

I’m not a fish person, as an I don’t eat fish, but everyone keeps talking about the famous fish market of Tokyo and now I’m curious about it.

The Tower Tokyo looks beautiful. Most people would say it looks like the Eiffel Tower, I think it’s a must do/see.
