Whether you’re in Japan for a day, week, month or year. You’re eventually going to find yourself in Tokyo. With this being my third visit to Japan. I think I’ve been to the city enough times to say, without pause, it is my least favorite part of the country.
Having travelled to many of my own countries bigger cities, as well as ones across Europe. I honestly feel they pretty much offer the same thing. Yes, Tokyo is beautiful and bright, but I can say the same thing about Times Square. Having lived a short few blocks from there for eight plus years. I avoided it like the plague. All comparisons aside, we enjoyed our day exploring the streets,the bus routes and trains. Kayuri insisted I do some crate digging. Even insisting I take a few records home. As for her, she took advantage of some of the discounts and tax free saving at one of the city’s electronics megastore. Not a bad day by any means. I just feel that my best days here will be spent exploring shrines and the rich history of the rural countryside. Below are a few images I took along the way. 楽しむ; 恵まれる

I seriously disagree! There’s no city like Tokyo! I like to visit other parts of Japan … but Tokyo is the best place to live!
In all honesty. I can understand the love you have for Tokyo. Having grown up just outside in New York City and eventually moving to Manhattan. The last thing I want to do when traveling is spend time in another Metropolis.
Thanks for the info.
What do you suggest to travel by if you stay there for like 12 days – Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Fukuoka combined? I’m going for the first time to Japan and worried about transportation more than anything.
