Most Unusual Things to Do in Tokyo ➕

  1. Visit a shaved ice place called himitsudo. It has a really unique vibe and is completely off the beaten path (basically no signs in English on how to get there). One of my favorite experiences in Tokyo. http://bit.ly/1aSH3c2

  7. KAGAYA Bar in Shinabshi!!!
    This is a secret tiny basement bar in Shinbashi. It's hard to find (use google), down a small flight of stairs below a street level shop. The bar has 5 small tables and the owner/barman is Japanese man who does really dirty sketch comedy in broken English while he serves you drinks and makes fun of you while everyone else in the bar laughs. It's wonderfully weird and hard to describe(and I wouldn't want to give it away). If you love dick jokes, then this is the place for you...

  8. Tokyo DisneySea
    This is the second park at Tokyo Disneyland and it's honestly the most amazingly crafted theme park in the world and it's a pretty wacky culture clash experience too.

    Beatles impersonators. The ultimate.

  11. Candy Showtime Omotesando
    Not uniquely Japanese, but pretty amazing store where you can watch them make candy by hand w/ tiny messages inside. Fun.
