Japan: Tokyo

I had some free time this past September, so I decided to make the most of it by taking a short trip to Asia. I went back home to the Philippines for a couple of days and spent the rest in Japan before going back to San Francisco. Since this was going to be my first solo international trip, I decided to stick to what I knew more — Tokyo. This was my third time in the city, so it was familiar enough and safe enough for my parents to let me go on this trip.

Being the clueless person I am, I never even bothered to check the weather in Tokyo before packing and flying out. Good thing my hostel had a ton of umbrellas for its visitors to borrow free of charge! The bad weather stopped me from doing everything that I had planned on doing this trip, but at least this gives me another reason to go back to Tokyo. It wasn’t all that bad though – some pictures turned out better with rain/puddles in them. 😅

I also took a day trip to Kamakura on the last full day I had in Japan, and I’ll be sharing photos from that trip in the next couple of days.

Tokyu Plaza is one of my favorite buildings in Tokyo. It’s so much fun playing with these mirrors! If you go up to the top floor, there’s a Starbucks with a pretty good view of the city.




The last thing I ate in Japan before heading to the airport early in the morning was a burger from Shake Shack.


A staple of Japanese cuisine!
