Zooming Japan (Travel Guide & Photos)

(14)Posted on December 29th, 2015. Wander Tokyo - Travel and Lifestyle Advice Centered on Tokyo, Japan. Dave’s Logs – Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day. You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. A perk of being a long-term resident in a country that is currently sitting atop most lists for “cool vacay destinations in the world”, is being asked on a weekly daily basis: “So… What are your Tokyo/Kyoto/Japan tips and recommendations?”

To which I politely smile and internally try to decide whether the person asking is mentally diminished or just hailing from an Internet-free country. Because all I hear is “Could you google Lonely Planet’s Top 10 List of Things to Do in Tokyo for me?” … Since there is clearly no useful or interesting answer to that question, and since it is a lot easier to be negative than positive, I instead decided to compile a near-exhaustive list of places and things that you should stay away from, when you visit Tokyo. Rule of thumb: if you are the sort of tourist who loved their visit to London’s Piccadilly Circus, Paris’ Champs Élysées, NYC’s Times Square or SF’s Fisherman’s Wharf, this list of don’ts is emphatically not for you.

Wattention : Hidden gems of Sugamo, the ‘Harajuku for obasans’ This street could hold the secret to Japanese obasans’ longevity Sugamo is known affectionately amongst the locals as the ‘Harajuku for obasans’, or aunties.

Wattention : Hidden gems of Sugamo, the ‘Harajuku for obasans’

It’s not as flashy or famous, but oozes character and confidence from the many hidden gems it has to offer ? From food, shopping, sights and even an onsen. This area makes for an enjoyable day-trip, if you’d like a change from cosplay spotting and futuristic fashion at Harajuku. Simply replace Takeshitadori with Jizodori Shopping Street, crepes with shiodaifuku (salted red bean mochi) and gothic girls with fake eyelashes with genki obasans wearing sun-visors and forearm covers, and you’re in obasan playland! Sugamo is the pacesetter when it comes to red hot underwear ?

One can’t go to Sugamo and not try the shiodaifuku, or salted red bean mochi ? Any shop that can survive in a street where the clientele are demanding obasans has to be good at what it’s doing. So go compare for yourself how the buzz at Sugamo compared to Harajuku! Micko - Predicando en el desierto. Motomachicakeblog.

New Year’s in Japan has almost become synonymous with Fukubukuro (福袋) or Lucky Bags which go on sale on January 1st.

My First Fukubukuro! (ScoLar Fukubukuro 2016)

Fashion, cosmetics, accessories and even electronics (Apple Japan has lucky bags too!) And niche stores all start selling these lucky bags that you buy for a set price but contain contents that are worth many times more how much you paid for it. Sometimes it is a way to get rid of old stock, but there can also be limited edition items (or a special bag that the items come in) that you can only get through fukubukuro. Shoppers eager to get a good deal usually line up hours before the shops open to snag one, with the lucky bags from popular brands selling out in under an hour!

You can also order them online in advance so you don’t have to wait in the freezing cold, but be prepared, they sell out fast as well! Cat Foreheads & Rabbit Hutches.
