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.

Look at You! You Think You’re Ready for Harajuku!
We knew it was going to be crazy. We’d seen pictures! We had read online accounts and talked to people who’d been there. Sure, Harajuku was going to be nuts, especially on the shopping street of Takeshita-dori, but we were ready. I mean, this is still Earth, people are people, and a crowd is a crowd. Am I right? It can’t be anything we haven’t seen a million times before….

Atago Hill and the NHK Broadcast Museum
There was a time when one could see the entirety of Tokyo, or Edo as it was then known, from atop Atago Hill. Today the view is obscured by a wall of skyscrapers, but climbing the steep hill is still worth the effort, thanks to the presence of the Atago Shrine and the adjacent NHK Broadcast Museum….

Komagome and the Rikugi-en Gardens
A pleasant and almost entirely-overlooked neighborhood in the north of the city, Komagome is defined by narrow alleys lined with shops and restaurants, and is home to one of Tokyo’s best gardens: the Rikugi-en, originally built at the end of the seventeenth century….

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.
