Felix Jansson’s tips for Tokyo
"Try to avoid visiting between 3 and 6 May since these are public holidays in Japan. Most hotels are fully booked and many places are closed, while public parks and other places that are open are extremely crowded. Another tip is to pack good shoes because you’ll walk miles upon miles and thousands of stairs in this city." says SAS flight attendant Felix Jansson who is also a talented magician:
Here's his tips to Tokyo which is one of his favorite places :
This is where you see the Tokyo of the movies. Grab a seat at a café and watch thousands of people cross the street. This is also a great spot to take pictures at night.
This is where you’ll find Tokyo’s National Museum, Hyokeikan, which covers a very large area and has some great exhibitions. An afternoon spent here will give you an insight into Japanese history and culture.
This man-made island in Tokyo Bay offers stunning views of the city. I recommend taking the train over the Rainbow Bridge and after your visit, take the boat tour that will take you all the way to Asakusa where you can also visit the wonderful temple.
Tsukiji Fish Market
This is where everyone goes to buy their fish, private and commercial alike. Only 60 people are allowed in to watch the famous tuna auction – and the latest is at 5.30am, so you need to be there by 3.30 for your chance! This is also where you’ll find the renowned Sushi Dai restaurant, which is famous for offering one of the world’s best and freshest sushi experiences. With just 12 seats, you should be prepared to stand in line from the second it opens at 5am.
