So this is the first in a series about my trips to Japan.
Tokyo is so vast, I'm going to focus on specific areas in a few different blog posts.
For now, I'll just share some of my favourite photos from what I do my first week in the crazy, amazing Japanese capital...
(UPDATE: We're staying in Minato-ku in which I've managed to book an apartment next door to an Irish pub. Well done, Carla.)
It's also worth checking out your traditional Japanese bath - it's actually a lot more comfortable than it looks, although the first few tries you do feel like a laundry load.
If you're going to bath the correct way - if course you're supposed to shower before, stepping into the bath completely clean.
However please note if you go during the week, some stores aren't open.
I've never tried hallucinogenic drugs, but I can imagine it's a similar experience.
