Last March, we went on a family vacation – the four of us with my mother, in-laws and sister in law. It was such a pleasant and memorable trip, we had a blast! I would love to share the 10 days we spent in Japan through two separate posts. Today is the post of our adventures in Tokyo while the second post is all about Osaka. Enjoy the pictures!

As soon as we arrived in Haneda International Airport Tokyo, we didn’t want to lose time and went straight to Akibahara for lunch (Tenya rules!) and Ueno Park where the Sakura trees are. I mean, you can’t go to Japan in spring and not take pictures with the Sakura trees, can you? Then, we went straight ahead to Kan’eiji temple and see Tokyo sunset from the height of Japan’s tallest building, the Tokyo Sky Tree. It was so beautiful!

Our next destination for the next two days was Tokyo Disney Resort! We visited Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea and felt like living in a fairytale. We got to stay at Disney Ambassador as well, i strongly recommend to stay nearby as our feet had hit their limits, haha!. It was magical, the kids (and the kid inside of me) loved it much!

On day 4, we had the chance to enjoy the breathtaking view of Mount Fuji from Kawaguchi Lake. We also rode Hakone Ropeway, it felt like sitting on top of the mountain! And before the day ends, we stopped by Gotemba premium outlets to shop branded items for half price!

Next on the list? Nippori Textile town where this mama was in heaven! You can’t imagine how many pieces of fabric I brought home. Then, we went to Shibuya to pose with the statue of Hachiko, and of course, visited the famous Tokyu Hands. If you are a hardore craft fan (like i am!), then this is the ultimate heaven. Imagine seven storey building filled with craft supplies. I know!
On our last day in Tokyo, we stopped by Harajuku only to pop in at the Marimekko store. It was definitely on my go-to list, so we just had to go there just for a little while. Then, we went to Yokohama to see Sakuragicho Park but the time was not on our side. As inviting as the park (they had a small themed park as well), Yuara and Kutri didn’t have time to play. But next time we come back, I promise you we will!

Thanks to Tripang to make this trip memorable!
