If you're planning a trip to Tokyo why not plan a day trip to Odaiba on Tokyo Bay! If you've never been you might be quite surprised to find a small Statue of Liberty, an indoor theme park and a plethora of fine dining restaurants. There's plenty to do in Odaiba, including going for a swim or just chilling near the man-made beach.
Kichijoji might not be well-known by those by travelling through Tokyo, but it is a favourite for Japanese!! It is was voted last year the most popular neighbourhood to live in in Tokyo. Why you may ask? Because you can get downtown (Shinjuku/Shibuya) with an express train in less than 20 minutes, but it is recluded enough to be calm. There is a huge and beautiful park, all the types of cuisines you can think of, plenty of small and cute cafes, good places to go shopping no matter your taste. In other words, you need to see it for yourself! You can easily spend the day there blissfully hopping from one store to another.
