Customer Travel Tip: if you visit the sky tree, pay the extra to go to the top level! Also, carve out a day or two to spend around Ueno area (Japanese national museum, various shrines/temples/gardens which are worth a visit beyond the Kyoto effect - and street performers/people watching galour!)

Liked: I enjoyed that there was so much to see and do, and easy to get around too!

Disliked: nothing to be done about this... but it was wet and overcast when we visited.

Backpacking / gap year Events / festivals Sightseeing & culture Visiting friends or family

Customer Travel Tip: Talk to the locals, you'll get the best experience that way. Also learn some basic Japanese such as hello, excuse me, thank you and so on. This helps to relax those who are not confident in their English, although often they speak it well enough.

Liked: Everything, it's the most fantastic city in the world. Couldn't recommend it more.

Disliked: If you're without 3/4G Internet, you need to plan your train journeys in advance at a wifi area, to make your journey quick and easy. No biggie.
