Tokyo November 2018, Day 1

One of our favorite memories from 2018 was our trip to Tokyo, Japan. In 2017, we saw temples, shrines, geishas, a bamboo forest, an old castle and hundreds of deer in Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. For our trip last year, we wanted to see the modern futuristic busy side of Japan. The recent trip was extra special because it was Aki’s first out of the country trip. With us were my uncles and aunts, all were 60 years old and up. The challenge for me was coming up with a flexible itinerary that both kids and senior citizens would enjoy. That meant not too many temples, not too many anime and toys and not too much walking. It was not as difficult because there are plenty of things to do, place to visit and food to eat in Tokyo. What was challenging was choosing which activities to include and which ones to forego.
