Tokyo Disney Sea – Part 1

Tokyo Disney Sea! Not to be confused with SeaWorld, Tokyo Disney Sea is the only park of its kind in the world. There are no other Disney Sea parks outside of Tokyo…well Chiba, Disney technically lies outside of the Tokyo prefecture, but we’ll keep that one quiet.

Tokyo Disney Sea is often rated the best Disney Park of them all! It has a distinctly grown up vibe compared to others (or at least the other parks I have been to; Paris and Orlando), yet has the standard Disney charm we love!

Disney Sea is much smaller than other parks, however this meant that we could conquer most of it in a day! What made Disney Sea extra special to me is the Indiana Jones ride!!! I was excited for months about that ride!

We started the day at around 5am, made it to Disney Sea the minute it opened, and got fastpasses for Indiana Jones straight away, thanks to our friend Gin who knows Tokyo Disney Parks like the back of her hand!

Even the monorail there is so Disney! You can see the windows are Mickey shaped too!

Hello, today we’re covering Akihabara, the electric town! Akihabara is famous for embracing the ‘otaku’ culture, and so anime, video games, idols, manga, etc. are all over the place! As are electrical goods, which is where the area gets it’s nickname!

We visited Akiba two or three times I think, I didn’t buy too much, but did walk away with a few things! Osaka also had it’s own electric town, which will be covered in about 17 months if I continue with these posts at the rate I’m doing thus far.

Meiji Jingu

Back on the Japan post hype! I really need to churn these out, this is still like day 4 or something of my 26 day trip. I went in MARCH, and it’s July and I’m still to go through my pictures, how bad is that?!

In the afternoon we visited Meiji Jingu shrine in Shibuya, Tokyo! It’s pretty much in Harajuku, which is also part of Shibuya, although I feel like I always interpret them as two completely separate areas, as when you think of Shibuya you think of the crossing, when you think of Harajuku you think of Takeshita Street!

Meiji Jingu shrine is dedicated to the Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken. It has been around for about 100 years, with parts rebuilt due to the Tokyo air raids in World War II.

I know this selfie is out of focus, but I liked it more than the in focus one!

This is the giant gate you’re greeted with as you walk to Meiji Jingu! Not only is it super close to Harajuku station, it’s about 2 minutes on foot from Takeshita Street! Amazing!
