The Tokyo Central Station reminded me of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station in Mumbai! It look gorgeous when lit up at night!

Day 1

The view of the Tokyo City from the 45th floor of the Metropolitan Government Observatory is absolutely stunning!

Day 2

The Sensoji Temple as Asakusa gives you a traditional  Japanese vibe. Being the oldest temple here, it's just not a symbol of Tokyo, but Japan also!

The passage leading to the Sensoji Temple is place to one of the biggest souvenir markets in the city! From Japanese fans, dolls and kimonos, you can also shop for umbrellas and porcelain cookware.

The view of the Tokyo Skytree from the Asakusa roads creates an amazing view in itself!
