skytree and shinkansen

The last part of our trip was spent on the Shinkansen, or bullet train, back to Tokyo to see Skytree, the tallest radio tower in the world.


 

We stopped by The Sweet Shoppe and bought these huge macarons for a snack!



Skytree was really crowded; I definitely recommend going on a weekday, as with any other tourist place in Japan. It's impossible to avoid the crowds, especially during Golden Week! We had a lot of trouble with getting seats on trains, so definitely try not to come during Japanese holiday seasons.

    I'm studying japanese (in germany) and want to go to Japan next autumn. I hope to have some time to travel there.

    Are you living or just traveling in Japan?
