Tokyo Photo Diary
Photography | Travel | Tokyo | Japan
Is Tokyo on your bucket list? Last March we found an epic flight deal to Tokyo, Japan ($600 RT from Washington, DC!!), and booked it immediately. Although we were only there for 4 days, that was more than enough time for Tokyo to leave a lasting impression on us.
Visiting Tokyo had always been at the top of our bucket list, and now that we’ve gone, we can’t wait to go back! Here are 25 photos from our trip that we hope will inspire you to visit Tokyo one day.
