@mrkirkland it's been over a week since we came home from our Tokyo trip and am still giddy happy about it. Sugokatta! Certainly did not disappoint. Coming from a place with a rather terrible transportation system and road network, travelling around and even outside the city had been a great experience on its own (I had not, however, tried to take a train during peak rush hour; I've heard how that's on a totally different level hahaha).
I missed the natto, though! Will probably look for it next time because I'm certainly coming back to Japan.
So grateful for all the helpful content on this site! I make sure friends planning a visit to Japan check out Tokyo Cheapo.
