My Japan trip started (with 3 days) and ended (with 2 days) in the magnificent, turn your senses upside down, city of Tokyo. It was our first time in Tokyo so we had a lovely mix of checking out charming neighbourhoods, must-see tourist sites, out of this world eats, and local farmers and antique markets.

Here's a day by day breakdown of where we went:

DAY 1
