I’m posting quick recaps from my Japan holiday on Mondays and Fridays to collect all the links to my highlight lists and full daily photos. More in depth posts to come!
After a quick run around Tokyo Station’s super kawaii Character Street, I spent most of the day at Meiji Shrine and mainly in the beautiful garden. I also stumbled across my first rose display of the trip in Yoyogi Park and visited the Rascal pop-up shop in Harajuku, where I got to eat a kitty donut and meet Rascal himself!
I tried to do too much this day and totally wore myself out. I checked the Health app later and I walked 10 miles and climbed 41 flights of stairs! First I went to Asakusa and took the river boat to Hamarikyu Garden. I spent a long time there as it was so interesting from every angle, squashed in between the river and a high rise business district. After that I went looking for the Ghibli clock, which was just about worth the endless walkways. I did some shopping in Ginza on the way home and then popped out later to check out the madness at Tokyu Hands.
