One of the things I wanted to do was to check out a view of Tokyo, all of Tokyo! At first I wanted to go to Skytree because it was taller and you could see more. However, the days that worked out for our schedule ended up being the day it was closed and really rainy. So, we decided to go to Tokyo Tower instead because it was open on the clear day. (**Keep in mind of the days each attractions are open and their prices before you decide to go. Tokyo Tower is the cheaper option and still gives great views.)
Since relocating my life to Australia I've had to adjust to life not being so "convenient or easy to get" as it is back home in the US (Florida). I was in a city for a few months and was around a variety of shops & places, but not like in Florida. Then moving to a regional town took it to a whole new level. No matter where I go in Australia certain things haven't made their way to this side of the world. It's an interesting adjustment, and something I can easily live without. But I still miss them.
One thing I was looking forward to before heading off to Tokyo was the chance that I could visit Disneyland (again)! I lived in Japan when I was a toddler and apparently went to Disneyland Tokyo at 3 years old, but who remembers that far back? Luckily we had plenty of time to spend in Tokyo and we managed to visit both parks!
There are tons of things to see and do in Japan, especially in Tokyo. One of the wonderful things to do to learn more about the Japanese culture is to visit shrines & temples! One thing that we found fascinating and respected was that throughout their history there was a mutual respect for everyone, especially when it comes to religion. We got to see a shrine in Ueno Park, which you can do TONS there! Click here for 15 things to do in Ueno Park!
