48 hours in Tokyo

Over 9 million people are living in the city – it is massive. So what should I do, when I only have 48 hours to experience TOKYO. Here is what I did: my tips for you (by the help of YOU – my amazing community – thank you so much again):

1. Day Visit Hakone

Hakone has a LOT to offer on a day trip from Tokyo. It is a 2 hours drive from Tokyo. We visited the hot springs (onsen), ate the famous black eggs (when you eat one you will live 7 years longer – so I ate two haha) and enjoyed a spectacular view of the iconic volcano Mount Fuji. Afterwards we went on a pirate ship and toured around the  Lake Ashi.

2. Day in Tokyo

We started our day in Tokyo with visiting the district Asakusa and then went to Harajuku, Omatosando, Shibuya (all connected so you can walk) and then for a sunset drink we went to Shinjukhu. It was an amazing day!!!


  • Sensō-ji – Buddhist temple is Tokyo’s oldest temple, and one of the most significant
  • little street markets where you can buy cute souvenirs
  • Asakusa Tourist Culture Info Center – go up with the elevator and enjoy the view from their eighth floor observatory (you will have a view of Sensoji Temple, Kaminarimon and the Tokyo Skytree)


  • Takeshita street and cat street (you will feel like in Venice – such a cool place)
  • Ragtag – second hand designer (Marni- Fendi)
  • United arrows – cool concept store (Jil Sander-Comme des Garcons)
  • Vintage Qoo
  • Amore vintage – Chanel vintage pieces (bit expensive)
  • Ice Cream Zoo shop


  • Kitsune cafe
  • Luxury shops – from Dior to Loewe
  • Monster cafe
  • Cat and bunny café (drinking with cute animals)


  • Big crossing
  • Funny tourist shops


  • Park Hyatt Rooftopbar „New York bar“ – best view!
  • Robot restaurant
  • Tsutaya Daikanyama – unique book store with a café
