No city is capable of such sensational physical and emotional metastasis quite as Tokyo can. The city seems to come alive with every inch of vanishing daylight, abuzz with locals and tourists, businessmen and schoolgirls alike. Tokyo’s signature of sleepless chaos by night is just as keenly felt as its organised serenity by day. To witness this transformation, I happened to be in Ginza, one of the city’s Top 3 night owl destinations (Shinjuku and Harajuku rounding out Top 3).
Ginza by night ignites a potpourri of senses: the luxurious, the unbridled and the effervescent. With its neon wonderland of sights and sounds, Tokyo’s upscale retail district morphs effortlessly into a classy revellers’ playground.

Such a beautiful city Jolene, I wish to travel Japan on its spring season! This coming autumn I will witness South Korea! 🙂
Autumn is coming right up. You must be excited about your upcoming trip! I’ve never been Korea (but I live in an area in Sydney that is known as “little Korea”), love to see your posts there!
I am definitely excited about this! 🙂
Oh hey, you’re back! And you revamped your blog, it looks great!
I so want to go to Japan! But it’s so expensive and… practically a 24 hours trip from Québec. ^^; Your lovely pictures make me dream. ♥
Thanks Ida! So glad you noticed. 😊
Oh really? I didn’t realise it was so far from Canada. It was a great trip, especially if you are into the food and the culture (both the peaceful and wacko). I think I will plan a Canada trip sometime soon too, autumnal colours in your part of the world seem divine… 😍
Oh, they are! ♥ Especially when coupled with a mountain or a water body (or both!). ^_^ I should take pictures someday of my favourite spots.
Technically, Canada isn’t *that* far from Japan, but I’m near the far east – practically diametrically opposed on the globe. Australia is even farther though. XD
Yea pls do show off some pics, lakes and mountains are the best part. Rockies would be really lovely to see. And I also hear that Niagara is better / fuller on the Canadian side 😜
TOKYO IS SO BEAUTIFUL! THE NIGHTLIFE LEFT ME AWESTRUCK (caps mean I’m emphasizing . Haha)
Hah! Thanks for your awesome comment and chuckled at your CAPS for emphasis. ☺️
