Spending time in Tokyo can be an overwhelming experience. This city has a lot going on, it can paralyze you with indecision. I mean where to start?

There’s Tokyo’s incredible temples and shrines, like Sensoji Temple or Meji Shrine. Serene zen gardens found throughout the city, my personal favorite is the Kiyosumi. Unique attractions only found in Japan like the crazy themed restaurants, teenagers dressed in cosplay costumes in Harajuku and the insane arcade culture. Last but certainly not least, there’s the shopping that’ll satisfy even the most jaded tourist.

To make your life easier, below is my list of top attractions in Tokyo.
