3D2N TOKYO Solo Trip: 9 Things You Must Do, Eat & Shop!


So this how I ended up in Tokyo! I was on a work trip in Yokohama for 4 days and then I extended my stay in Tokyo for another 3 days. As it was a last minute decision, I don’t have time to find any travel partner; therefore a solo trip in Tokyo is fine for me.  

Japan is well-known for its safety and people are super polite whenever I ask for directions, plus I can get to anywhere via their comprehensive public transport system, or walk, which is great. There are so many reasons to love Japan, be it their culture, people, food, scenery, attractions, shopping, theme parks, and many more.

Search for Budget Capsule Hotels in Tokyo

1. Search for Budget Capsule Hotels in Tokyo

As a solo traveler, I spent most of my time out and all I need is a decent and clean place to shower and sleep. As regular hotel rooms in Tokyo are quite expensive, staying in a pod or capsule hotel is a great way to save money.
