While there are many versions of Tokyo travel itinerary, I crafted mine to be around the highlight of shopping and unearthing the city’s pretty secrets; like discovering the oldest crepe shop in Harajuku and hunting down Hachikō, the famous dog statue at Shibuya Station that comes with SIX exits. Among it all, strolling along the beautiful tree-lined streets of Omotesandō really left me yearning for Tokyo even more than before. In this travel diary you will find the must-visit spots in bold. Enjoy!

Japan should be given the award for having the Most Obedient Pedestrians in the World. Just watching how busy traffic lights take impatient turns blinking at every corner, and busy people glued to their cellphones while crossing one of the biggest crossroads without any worry at all is an amazing experience by itself.

One of the ‘must-do things’ when in Tokyo is take a picture with Hachiko, a dog statue built to commemorate the true story of a loyal, faithful dog that waited for his dead owner everyday at a train station until it dies, too.
