Tōkyō | day 5

day 5

Prepare for a big-night-out by having a little sleep-in. You’ll need your energy!

The final day of this itinerary captures the mind-blowing, ear-deafening & eye-captivating neon-lit streets of both Shibuya and Shinjuku.

Each is busy without being too crowded; heart-thumping & bass-pumping; quite simply lots & lots of fun. These are the places to party all-night-long; assuming you have the stamina. Or just go along to people-watch: it’s a hoot.

Bars stay open late all over Tōkyō, many until 5am. However, the trains stop shortly after midnight, leaving partygoers with the choice to either “party-on” or find a hotel to “crash”. Both “love hotels” and “manga hotels” have been created to meet this need.

A pleasant way to approach Shibuya is to walk from Ebisu through Daikanyama.

The small boutique retail shops are quite different as Shibuya tends to cater to a younger generation and Shinjuku is a little more sophisticated.

But as I’ve said before, no shop ever feels exclusive or pretentious.
