From 91 Days in Tokyo
We spent three months in the world’s biggest city. For us, it was a different kind of destination. 91 days usually give us enough time to really explore our new homes in depth, and do everything we could possibly hope to. But 91 days in Tokyo? Good luck! It went by in a flash. We saw a lot of amazing things, visiting both the city’s most famous sights, and many which are way off the normal tourism itinerary. We experienced Kabuki Theater and Sumo Wrestling, went to a spa, and even found time for an excursion to Mount Fuji. But our 91 days went by way too quickly.
Whether you’re planning your own journey to Tokyo, or are just interested in seeing what makes it such a special place, our articles and photographs might help you out. Start at the beginning of our adventures, visit our comprehensive index to find something specific, or choose one of the articles selected at random, below:

The Taimeiken Restaurant & Kite Museum
Between the shopping mecca of Coredo Mall and the Tokyo Stock Exchange, we came across a quaint museum which feels completely out of place in modern Nihonbashi. The small and cluttered Kite Museum is hidden away without fanfare above Taimeiken, one of central Tokyo’s favorite restaurants….

The Sumida Aquarium
The rain was showing no sign of stopping. We stared sullenly at the clouds from our habitual perch in the SkyTree’s sixth-floor Starbucks and tried to figure out what to do with the day. Suddenly, an inspiration: the Sumida Aquarium. A brilliant idea! So brilliant, in fact, it was shared by approximately 74% of Tokyo….

The Shinyokohama Ramen Museum
It was 1958, and we were hungry. Luckily, we were near Narutabashi Station, where there are at least a dozen ramen shops to choose from. We sat down to big bowls of steaming noodles, and talked about the news of the day… Khrushchev seems a reasonable new leader for the Soviets, doesn’t he? Then my cellphone rang and I remembered: this isn’t 1958. And there is no train station called Narutabashi. The year was 2014 and we were inside Shinyokohama’s Ramen Museum….

For 91 Days in Tokyo – The E-Book

For three crazy months, we dedicated our lives to exploring Tokyo. Every single morning, we’d leave our tiny apartment, hop on the subway and set off to discover something new and amazing in the world’s biggest city. From sumo to kabuki, sushi to soba, gorgeous Japanese gardens, fascinating museums, distinctive neighborhoods, and wild nightlife, we tried to provide ourselves a well-rounded impression of the city… the only thing we really missed out on, was sleep!

We’ve now collected our blog into an e-book for your Kindle, Nook or other e-reader. With over 250 full-color photos and 100 articles, indexed alphabetically and by category, this portable edition is perfect for when you’re out and about in the city. We weren’t able to exhaustively document everything there is to do in Tokyo (a task for which 91 years would be insufficient), but we did have a lot of amazing experiences. And we hope our articles, anecdotes, advice and pictures can help inspire your trip.
