Tokyo is such an iconic, fascinating city that I think many people in this world would love to visit at least once in their life time.
Some of the many legit concerns I received from my readers regarding traveling to Tokyo are:
- I don’t speak any Japanese, I’m gonna get so lost everywhere.
- I have a really tight schedule and the Japanese are too punctual for my own good. I’m worried about missing my train, bus, boats…
- I am traveling with very young, energetic kids and I am intimidated by the complicated train system. I have to push a stroller and I panic when my baby cries in a crowded train!
- I am traveling with my family/parents/in-laws and after walking for 5 minutes they complain about knee pain. My MIL also needs to go to the washroom every 2 hours.
- It’s my first time so I want to see Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Sky Tree, Sensoji temple, Meiji shrine, the Imperial Palace… and I only have ONE day in Tokyo… and a flight to catch later.
- I want to buy 10kg worth of fresh groceries and I don’t want to carry them with me up and down the stairs through 3 different train rides and I just don’t want to deal with looking at the train map or GPS arghhhh.
(Ok. That last one is me. Haha.)
People who are hesitating to visit Tokyo because of the above troubles, I have some good news for you today! 😀
