Claudia Canovai is a young Italian girl who is passionate for travelling. She has visited many different continents and cities but the one place she wanted to talk about was Tokyo where she did a semester abroad of university. She studies literature in Rome, Italy but decided to adventure herself for some months and went study in Japan! During this adventure that she truly loved she also got the chance to do some tourism in Tokyo, a city who made her fall in love!
While visiting Tokyo, what she enjoyed seeing the most and she truly recommends everyone to visit is Meguro River during sakura season, as well as Ueno park, in Taito. Sakura season is the period of cherry blossoms in Japan which is truly magical as the trees turn pink.
When your belly starts asking for food the place she says is a must try is 35 steps bistro. It’s an izakaya in the heart of shibuya which is one of the most popular neighbourhoods of Tokyo.
Roppongi and Shibuya are considered the most famous night out places. There are amazing clubs and bars open all night long. The streets are always incredibly full of people walking and dancing and having fun. You can meet anyone from Japanese to foreigners, from business man to crazy people dressed up as manga characters or baby dolls. The life of this two places gets crazy at night.
When asked about interesting and curious things she found she Tokyo she said right away “I could talk forever”. In Harajuku people go out dressed in the most different ways. Shibuya crossing is the most crowded crossing of the world!
In Roppongi hills there is a huge statue of a spider which is kinda scary . Love hotels are a peculiarity of Japanese culture. lovers go there and pay only for the time they need. And the rooms are decorated with different themes such as under the sea, hello kitty, into the jungle etc.
“Tokyo is a city that surprised and that I definitely want to go back to! Especially the surroundings have a lot of magical natural beauty that makes you fall in love with the Japanese culture. I look forward to go back someday!”
