Golden Week in Tokyo

May 9, 2010

The first three weekdays of May in Japan are National Holidays (Constitution Memorial Day, Greenery Day and Children’s Day), referred to as “Golden Week.”  So with this time off from work I took my first trip to Tokyo.  I tried something new during this trip, I took a lot of video with my camera and edited together, figuring a lot of what I’ll see will look better in motion.  So here’s the final result.

Yoyogi Park Greasers, my favorite part of Tokyo.

Tokyo was great fun, I met up with quite friends that happened to also be in town for Golden Week and made some new friends as well.  Tokyo is definitely a massive city, covering 844.4 square miles, nearly twice that of New York City which stands at 468.9.  And just like New York, there is a huge amount of diversity in the city.

I spent 3 full days in Tokyo, and that was barely enough time to scratch the surface.  Next time I visit I’m hoping to at the very least see a sumo bout and a baseball game.
