This was my first time in Tokyo and I had such a great time!! Even if I stayed only 7 nights I had a blast! I went riding on the JR rails, subways, explored harajuku streets, went shopping in Harajuku too. People in Japan do not speak very good english but I was able to get by with a phrase book and some key phrases. It rained almost everyday I was there but I was ready with my pancho :) I would totally recommend Tokyo as they make things very easy for foreigners and visitors starting from the airport Narita which is where I flew in from Dallas Forth Worth. I went on this trip solo and I felt safer in Tokyo than in other major cities in the US hehe :D
One of the great cities of the World- I would go back in a heartbeat, tomorrow if I could! there is so much to see and do and eat and drink! We stumbled into a Robatayaki Izakaya and were handed an ipad menu all in japanese LOL- we ordered by some pictures :) but the table next to us helped us and treated us to extra skewers of roasted treats they said we had to have! So of course we ordered a bottle of sake and shared it all around- that was how the whole city felt to us- Enjoy all that Tokyo has to offer!!!
