Ok, so I realise that I may have abandoned my blog for two weeks. But I was just so busy enjoying myself in Tokyo! If I was a proper organised blogger then I probably would have scheduled some posts... I'm obviously improper and unorganised.
Anyway, I had an absolutely wonderful time and now have plenty of stuff to blog about. While I was there I went shopping in Shibuya and Harajuku and walked down the infamous Takeshita Dori where all the young fashionistas hang out. The next day I went to an amazing Andy Warhol exhibition in Roppongi and then went home to prepare for the early morning the next day...
Tokyo Disneyland! I'm not exactly a massive Disney fan but it's impossible not to enjoy all the fun and fantasy of Disneyland. Plus, it was all decorated for Easter which was so cute. Then, this being Tokyo, there was all the Disney Cosplay. Just, Wow.
13 hours of fun almost killed me off and the next day I just stayed at home and relaxed. The next day it was back to business and I went to Asakusa and walked along Nakamise street, along with tons of Japanese school kids, as we all made our way to Senso-ji Temple. Nearby was the fantastic World Bag and Luggage Museum with a great collection of bags from all around the world. From Asakusa I made my way to Ginza, the area of Tokyo filled with high end designer shops.
On my penultimate day I went to Kamakura, a coastal town often often called the Kyoto of Eastern Japan due to it's numerous temples and shrines and most notably the second tallest bronze Buddha statue in Japan. Then, finally, on Sunday I went back to Shibuya and Harajuku and saw lolita girls, punks and a group of rock and rollers in Yoyogi park. Perfect ending to a perfect trip.
