I was super fortunate for the opportunity to visit the Peninsula Hotel in Tokyo and was treated like royalty during my stay. After a very long flight over I was picked up in a 7 series at the airport. I was a little nervous leading up to this trip seeing it was my first time traveling abroad alone, but they made me feel at home from the get go. I was put in a deluxe suite that had a huge closet/changing room. I woke up every morning to a super delicious breakfast in bed that started the day off so amazing. This was the best start to what turned out to be a great trip!
Where to eat/drink:
-Cafe kitsune- small quaint place with a real trendy vibe, a spot where all the fashion people gravitate towards 😉
-Yoku moku- they’re known for their amazing cakes and cookies
-Toranomon koffee- really amazing ‘koffee’ 🙂
-The roastery- amazing selection of great coffee!
-Anniverarie cafe- if you’re in the mood for a cool french cafe in Tokyo, this is the place to go! Great for people watching in Omotesando as well.
–Peter @ The Peninsula Tokyo- Had The Grill 4 course meal, it was SO delicious.
-Akanoren ramen: The BEST ramen I have ever had!
-Bar piano -This super sexy luxurious place is a super cool spot to visit. It is super tiny and fits like
6-7 people. It has a super cool vibe with its red lights and very Parisian look, I really enjoyed this
Places to see:
-Tsukiji Fish market- the tuna auction was super cool to watch
-Tokyo skytree- what a beautiful view!
-Senso-ji temple- everything you hope to see in Tokyo!
-Exhibit in ginza: The Ginza is having a Gucci four room exhibit this month on the 7th floor that I
had the privilege to visit. This was a super cool, unique experience that I recommend anyone visit
if they have a chance. It’s super chic and if you’re in Tokyo in the near future it goes on until
-Harajuku – a must see in Tokyo!
-Imperial palace garden- the most unreal garden with such beautiful views
-Shibuya- the city overall is unreal and almost like New York on steroids!
