+ TOKYO, JAPAN - Dream Destination

Kirk Pederson

OK, so I did travel over a dozen countries in the past year but I am still keeping my beady eyes on potential getaway spots for the future. There's nothing wrong with dreaming....

First up in my procastinating is Tokyo, Japan. I want to live and breathe the highly-charged atmosphere. Technology, neon lights and perhaps a chance glance of a living and breathing geisha in full attire. Acre-wide street crossings, televised adverts on street corners, karoake bars and outlandish streetstyle.

Speaking of streetstyle, one of my all-time fave sites for hair and style inspiration is Style-Arena i really can't think of any other city in the whole world which brings it the way that Tokyo does. Evidence below:

Things to do in Tokyo

So, make-believing that I'm off to Tokyo in the near future, what would I do when I get there?


Trip Advisor informs me that Hibiya Park/Koen is one of the top places to see. Judging from the picture above it's a pretty popular place for locals to lunch.

Cherry blossom viewing in Chidorigafuchi is a must-do. You rent a boat and float serenely in this gorgeous moat. OMG how romantic?!


On every visitors' list HAS to be shopping, in particular shiny, futuristic and altogether quite random gadgets! Akihabara Electric Town is a discount electronics store district, positively brimming with miniscule gadgets and also said to be the hub for Japanese pop culture. Many youth-culture otaku come to Akihabara, as seen in the picture above.
