Omiyage is a gift or souvenir you give to friends, coworkers, and family after returning home from a trip. It is so much more than just an edible souvenir. Here in Hawaii, bringing back omiyage from Japan is almost a tradition.
Tokyo, a modern city, full of glass towers, wide avenues, and constant activity. However, there are hidden time-warps scattered throughout the city that have somehow evaded modernization and offer a rare glimpse into Tokyo’s past. Join us on this fun filled Memorial Day Weekend tour to Tokyo we discover Tokyo’s backstreets and shopping arcades in search of the best “small kine” shopping this city has to offer.
We have included the must do favorites, Tsukiji and Ameyoko Shopping Streets along with some less known, but popular with locals, Sugamo Jizo, Yanaka Ginza, and the antenna shops in Yurakucho. There is also Shibuya Sky, a new landmark facing world-famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing.
It is not all about shopping as we have included a visit at Meiji Jingu Shrine to witness the pageantry of a Japanese wedding. There is also a day trip to Enoshima and Kamakura, its most recognizable landmark, Kotoku-in Temples’ Great Buddha.
Accommodations for our 4-night stay is at Sunshine City Prince Hotel, with direct access to the Sunshine City Mall and in the heart of Ikebukuro. This popular area of Tokyo offers plenty of entertainment, shopping, and dining options. Besides the two major department stores, Tobu and Seibu, you will also find a Mega Don Quijote, Uniqlo, and Bic Camera.
When you are looking for fun, Tokyo delivers. You will leave understanding why Tokyoites are fond to say, “to be tired of Tokyo is to be tired of life”.
