Travel in Tokyo: StreetGyaru style

There is all types of guides where to go when you are in Japan, but why not listen to someone that is more like you, that has lived there twice and know her way around?
Let’s travel StreetGyaru wise

First of all: Tokyo has about 130 million people so NO there is not “one” city in this over-the-top-huge city!

In Tokyo you should try and book a hotel/motel/holiday in around the
JR Yamanote Line

This line is like a cirkel that takes you to a bunch of the very best sightseeing in Tokyo!
Buy a SUICA card for a better Japanese and StreetGyaru way which means you just follow the flow with people BUT you can use different ways of keeping your card at hands. Me, I have a Penguin from 6%DOKIDOKI

On the Yamanote Line you have:
Shibuya – walk up Hachiko Exit and you will step out to the bussiest intersektion in the world, which might feel overly crowded but if you cross the intersektion (and yes, pick up your camera and film/take photo of this “real” StreetGyaru Tokyo!

For the best view, take a latte at Starbucks on the second floor of Tsutaya
