This is also Tokyo.
One of the biggest misconceptions about Tokyo is that it is just a big fast pace city with tall buildings, neon lights and crazy rush hour madness on the trains - while that is true... people don’t see this other quieter slow pace side of Tokyo.
I’ve been living in Tokyo for over 4 years now and one of the reasons while I love this city is because it has everything!
I’m a person who loves to have a good balance in my life - I love to have a good fun (sometimes crazy 😜) time with my friends BUT I also love nature, exploring, taking life slowly and enjoying the little things.
And the beauty of Tokyo is that you can have the best of both worlds.
There are the busier livelier areas like Shibuya and Shinjuku but just a short walk away, away from all the crowds you can find yourself in a whole different atmosphere and discover little neat hidden gems.
Even going a station or two away from the bigger stations in central Tokyo, you’d be quite surprised at the dramatic contrast... finding quiet residential areas, local neighbourhoods where the locals hangout, traditional Japanese architecture and wonder where did all those tall buildings go?
But my favourite is that nature is never too far away from the center of Tokyo. Under less than an hour, you can get to places where you’re surrounded by nature, great hiking spots, parks, beaches, lakes, rivers etc.
So... I challenge you!!
The next time you’re in Tokyo or if you’re living in Tokyo now, just get off at a random station and walk around.
That’s how I discover my favourite places and how my hidden spots series are created 😉😝 P.s how are your cities like?? Is it easy access to get to the big city life and nature?? #tokyolife #tokyo #japanlife #tokyohiddengems #japanhiddengems #tokyohiddenspots
