We spent our first week in the United Kingdom in Cornwall, the south-west tip of England. The Cornish area has plenty to offer within an hour drive- from sleepy towns abundant with stone cottages and castles, to endless valleys of green farmland, and bustling beach towns like Newquay and St. Ives.
Tokyo is full of food: some delightful, some intimidating, but all delicious. We enjoyed futuristic sushi, traditional Soba noodles, and also developed full-blown ramen addictions. There are so many enticing must-try restaurants in Tokyo, you’ll probably find yourself enjoying more than three meals a day.
Shibuya! Home to the world’s busiest crosswalk (in the world’s most populated city!): a five-way free for all surrounded by skyscrapers and mega-screens that’s said to have up to 1,000 crossers at a time during rush hour. When you imagine Tokyo, this is it. We stuck around after sunset to see Shibuya at it’s best, neon lights and all.
Shinjuku embodies the urban side of Tokyo: government building skyscrapers, upscale department stores, crowded streets teeming with bars and cafes, and the world’s busiest railway station. Since the weather is brimming on the beginning of typhoon season here, our first day out in Shinjuku is through the drizzle.
