Top Things To Do In Tokyo On A Budget

Japan is a wonderful country to travel in, and I would recommend it as a destination in a heartbeat. However, unlike many Asian countries, it’s not always easy to travel on a budget. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the number of free attractions, and cheap eating options available. These are a few of my top choices from Tokyo:

View From The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building
FREE – I would highly recommend a trip up the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building to have a look at the view. I went up at night and it was great to see all the buildings lit up. You can see for miles, and it’s hard to belief it’s free. However, if you fancy splashing out, there is an international restaurant at the top too, which considering the location is reasonably priced. It can be a bit tricky to find the lift, but head for building 1 and you should find the queue. It was quite long when we joined, but moved quickly.

Where to find Vegetarian food in Tokyo

Finding vegetarian food in Japan isn’t always easy, but it is possible. These are just a few options to sample while in Tokyo:

T’s TanTan (Tokyo Station)
This vegan restaurant has to be one of the easiest, and best places to try ramen. There are a selection of noodle soups, which you can ponder over without worrying about where the soup stock came from. Not only are there Japanese options, but also some Korean cuisine. The main dishes cost around 800yen.
