3 days in Tokyo

I'm staying 3 days in Tokyo with a friend in late December and we are a little frightened because there's so much too see. 

What shouldn't we miss?

We're architects by the way

Hi, Architect! Tokyo metropolitan government building is also nice architecture. There is a observatory and it is for free!! 


Hama-rikyu Garden garden is also nice. You can enjoy Macha tea in a traditional house! It is located near Tsukiji market. You can go to Asakusa from Hamarikyu garden by water bus. 


Crossing at Shibuya is also unique. Hundreds of people walk across.

Hi ! for architects, the easy proposition is to visit the Tokyo Sky Tree finished few years ago, or the Rainbow Bridge Tokyo. But I recommand something a little different : Japan Open-Air Folk House Museum. This is an open-air museum where you can visit authentic house from different Japan's periods. But it can take you half a day.

When you're there definitely check out the Tokyo Sky Tree supposed to be one of the tallest towers in Japan. Definitely a sight to see. The Gundam Front Tokyo statue is around there and that's a sight to see too. You can take a bay cruise that will take you on a ferry tour and you can see the city from the water. Lots of really cool attractions in Tokyo that you and your friend will definitely enjoy.

I like heading to the "Tokyo city view" observation deck at the top of Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. When you buy a ticket you can pay a couple dollars extra to go out to the Sky Deck (Sky Deck ie: rooftop) which gets you out from behind the glass where you can enjoy the open-air views (and wind). The Mori Art Museum is also at the top of the tower, so it's a good combination visit for art and city views.

Hi Laura,

Agree with what the others have suggested. Would add Meiji Shrine and Tokyo Imperial Palace East Garden. The walk to the shrine through quite a dense forest is a really nice change for the big buildings surrounding it. And the gardens are really lovely. Make sure you check out the moate that runs around the palace too.

Have a blast!
