Thread: In Tokyo for 3 months.

  1. #1

    Default In Tokyo for 3 months.

    Hi, will be in Tokyo soon and was wondering if any of you can recommend nice places to shoot during summer, besides the usual touristy places like Akasaka, Kurakama, Hakone, Harajuku etc...I have no fix preference; just need some tips to check out the places.

    people here like to go Hokkaido for the summer, but it'll be very expensive.

    otherwise, there'll be plenty of fireworks festivals throughout summer, and the biggest temple procession in Tokyo in Asakusa

    just to add, Little Edo (Ko-E-Do) seems like a nice location close to Tokyo, here's a guide in English -> http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e6500.html

    Go to Nikko, historical samurai country.

    If you have time, take an internal flight to Kagoshima, there is a live volcano there called Sakurajima.

    Take the train to Kyoto and Nara. Lots to see there.

    I second the suggestion to Mt. Fuji from now till early September -- hiking to the peak that is. You have to apply in advance.

    Check out the Izu Peninsula too -- a short ride from Hakone.
