I’ll be going to Tokyo (my first time, and my first trip to a non-English-speaking country) from 5/1 to 5/31, and was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for visitors?
I definitely plan on doing some of the typical ‘tourist’ activities, like visiting Akihabara, Harajuku, and Tokyo Skytree. Also want to check out some of the city’s older neighborhoods, along with nature walks and parks. And go to Koenji Cave, of course. Outside of Tokyo, I want to take day trips to Yokohama, Kamakura, Nikko, and Okutama (to see the limestone caves), and there’s a three day festival in Chiba that I might go to. I don’t have plans to see the other parts of the country (it’s a little out of my budget, sadly!) but I can already tell that there’s a LOT to do in the Tokyo region.
Let me know if there's anything else, psytrance related or otherwise, that I ought to check out while I’m there? Also if you have any tips for navigating the language and culture, I'd really appreciate it (I know a little Japanese, but I'm far from fluent)
Hope to be partying Tokyo Tekno style soon...
