5 things you shouldn’t miss out when you’re in Tokyo

Tokyo, one of Asia’s most bustling cities, will be hosting the Summer Olympics in 2020. Last year, it attracted more than 13.1 million foreign visitors, including myself (I visited in May 2016) and now that I look back, I’ve actually visited Tokyo three times in three years!

Despite my frequent visits, Japan still remains as one of my top travel destination in Asia! There are many things to love about – delicious food, beautiful shrines and temples (like Meiji Jingu)! In this post, I will be sharing with my top picks in Tokyo!

1. Staying in a Capsule Hotel


Nihonbashi Bay Hotel – Capsule Interior 

I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of a staying in a capsule hotel, a concept that started back in the 1980s, which provides affordable but tiny (size of a single bed) accommodation. Unlike staying in a hostel, Capsule Hotels usually provide amenities such as pyjamas, room slippers and clean towels. The rest area is relatively quiet and you will have your own private space, behind the blinds of the capsule. Prior to my first night in the capsule, I thought that the capsule may be somewhat claustrophobic, but the space turns out to be pretty decent! I had a comfortable sleep and the air ventilation was not an issue at all! The following morning, I could even sit upright and do my makeup in the comfort of my own capsule. It was nice to experience a night of solitude and I’ll definitely give this another try in my next solo trip to Tokyo!
