5 Things To Do in Tokyo during Winter

There are a lot of things to do in Tokyo and clearly you cannot do all of them in just 2 days! Visiting Disneyland or Disney sea is already a day itself. But if you only have 3 days in Japan I advise you to enjoy the beauty of its nature and city first and save Disneyland later when you have the chance to visit Tokyo for a much longer time.


Fourth Station, Mt. Fuji

Shall we start, aye?

1. Pay a visit to Mt. Fuji

Mt. Fuji is an active volcano in Japan and is considered as one of Japan’s sacred mountain. A train from Narita Airport to Shinjuku Station is an hour via Narita Express. From Narita International Airport, take a train to Shinjuku. When you reach the station, walk a few meters to Shinjuku Bus Terminal. Then, hop on a bus going to Kawaguchiko which is another 2-hour bus ride. You can already see the majestic Mt. Fuji behind the Kawaguchiko station. And I tell you, the 3-hour train and bus ride is definitely worth it.



2. Take a walk across the famous Shibuya Crossing

You did not visit Tokyo if you hadn’t been able to cross this famous intersection. Whether it is sunny, raining or snowing you wouldn’t see this intersection crowd-less. I actually call this the “Times Square of Japan”. This can be a substitute to that New York trip you have been waiting to push through. There is also a variety of stores to shop from after crossing the busy junction.

3. Enjoy the snow at a Ski Resort

Whether you know how to ski or you don’t, you can still enjoy Ski Resorts! Remember, sled always has your back *wink* or you can try snow boarding. Plus, if it is your first time to see snow, you can enjoy it here more and you can do anything you want to do with it. You can also take Instagram-worthy pictures of you or other things and make snow as your background or pretend that you’re a pro in skiing or snowboarding and even get your friends jealous especially if you are from a tropical country.

4. Feel Japanese-y at Asakusa Temple

If you want to time-travel in Japan, visit the oldest temple in Tokyo — the Asakusa Temple! You can learn a thing or two about Japanese culture in here. Also, you can buy things that are related in their culture such as kimonos, Japanese umbrellas, Japanese hand fans, Japanese dolls and everything Japanese! You can even buy famous Japanese treats such as Dorayaki which is a Japanese pancake filled with red beans and I tell you, that is the best Japanese treat I ever tasted! #HEAVENISREAL

5. See Tokyo from above 

And last but not the least, visit the second tallest building in the world, *drum rolls* TOKYO SKY TREE! *heart-eyed emoji* It is a television tower which has the fastest elevator where in just a few seconds you already reached the top. Whoa! I didn’t even feel it. And the view up there was the best! HANDS DOWN! I have therefore proved that Tokyo is really such a beautiful city even though it is quite expensive to visit, still, every penny you spent is so worth it.


That’s all folks! Hope it helped. And enjoy your visit in the Land of the Rising Sun. It’s such an amazing experience to be able to visit Tokyo. You should cherish every moment while you’re there!
