Customer Travel Tip: Remember to bring or buy an unbrella, if you travel in spring(probbably in fall and winther too) And remember to take your shoes off in houses and fitting rooms. And be on time, if you are meeting locals, it is respectless/rude to be late.

Liked: So futureristic and full of life. Really diffrent from other countries, really lit up with weird/diffrent commercials and diffrent fashion and living style. And their Englis is not good, but they try anyways, which is really nice.

Disliked: Ruels, lots of ruels in puplic. Not nessysairly a dislike, but a difficult change. Only smoking areas. That is fine and respectful, but you see "no smoking" signs every where! On the side walk on vending machiens. Even at peoples homes. Seems like every person is in a rush all the time. Hard to get to talk with someone local, because they are in a rush. And long lines of people at restrooms, afes and fitting rooms.

Customer Travel Tip: Do the usual touristy things. But also get off the typical tourist paths occasionally and discover new things that are not in the guide books! There is sooooo much more to Tokyo than what is written in the guide books. :)

Liked: How alive the city is. All the given possibities: shopping, culture, nightlife. Public transportation.

Disliked: If you are not used to the public transportation, it can be a tad confusing at the beginning with all the different lines (JR, Metro, subway). There are always people around to help you, though.
