The rail look behind me is just so much braid so, many before their umbrellas, let's go to the train station, and start, this video alright, so we just got in a dry spot we're underneath the station it's up for the rest of this video we're, gonna put away the umbrella and, my, boots and we're gonna take you to all the places in, Tokyo, where you don't, have to use your umbrella and have a good time here. Now. That we got rid of our umbrella let's go check out the first place number, 1 ek buckaroos sunshine, city sunshine. City is a huge, entertainment shopping mall located, in the second-biggest. Anime otaku capital. Of Tokyo ek boo kiddo it's about a ten minute walk from DK book on stations but you're gonna get wet so make sure to use Higashi geeky bucardo which is directly connected. We. Just got to you got she gave a pillow or headed to sunshine, city by, the way I'm gonna show you the path from each station, so you don't get lost when you try this yourself as there, was some trial and error for some of these spots after walking, this super, long tunnel, from the station, you finally, arrive at this huge, indoor, shopping mall. So. On the third floor they have J world now J world stands for jump which is a comic, book they have all these different characters like one p90 throw and Dragon Ball pretty friggin awesome and he can go inside, and you can enjoy the whole world of territories, and. On. The second floor you have it noms it sounded cool, we got two tickets not, that bad if you want to ride the rides 3,500. Or 500 yen like it is so. Nom de town is an indoor, theme park that offers many. Attractions, and a crazy variety, of gyoza if you want to get your gills on in Tokyo this, would be the place to be honest I never was, too interested in nan de town because I found us four kids but I completely underestimated. It's, so big and you can spend the entire day here. So. Nan de town was pretty, fun it's actually one of my favorite places and what's cool about nom de town is that it's right next to, Pokemon. Center, look. At all these people playing Pokemon, so, cool, if. You love Pokemon, this, place is a definite, must you, can buy all sorts of cool Pokemon, related stuff anyways this go take a look inside. What. Can I give all you, get actually, a character inside. Check. That out there's, actually 13, registers. In the Pokemon, store gotta, catch them all. So. If you don't want to wait in line that guy kind of looks like Pikachu. On. The 9th floor you have the aquarium, and you, also have at the planetarium, number. 2 Shinjuku. Underground. Shinjuku. Is one of the largest train stations in Tokyo and has crazy, underground. Tunnel access which leads to a plethora of shopping malls department, stores and restaurants we, just arrived into, this east exit and we're gonna check out lemonade, that's the first stop well, it's, technically, illuminate, s and it's super, easy to get to see. It's. Mainly women's. Fashion, so there's a lot of shoes there's, a lot of girly, domestic, brand not a lot for men let's go check out an upper floors to see what we can find, so they do have men's on the fifth and sixth floor which is nice they also have a lumen a one and two on the south exit side get a little hungry this is actually a good place to go lots of restaurants on 8th and the seventh floor. So. You get a little hungry when you're doing these underground, tours got, a little snack let's, test it out. Top. In the middle and then it has this really hard shell really good.
To. Get back to the underground tunnels from luminate s you, need to go from b1 and take these little stairs. So. We just need to let lumen a and now we're gonna make our way towards, East it on kind of a luxury department, store along the way as we go on the ground there's actually these cool little stores, here that you know if you want to you can check out while you're you're passing by we just came from the shops over there to my right but to my left right behind me this to the altar we're gonna skip it for this time around because, there's not a lot of stores there and it's kind of dead alright, let's, keep going. So. We just went along that, one path here on sub nowadays it's actually four mountains for sub not though it's a very very long corridor but it's pretty cool, look at all this shopping and we're still underground. No, rain. Keep. Walking long and you'll hit, and. There's. A bee crows. Stay. With me no, soldiers, left behind. Cool. We, made it Lisa time, that was kind of a long walk but we're still not wet this has, luxury items, I actually don't shop here a lot but when I do it's, for a nice gift for a friend this has stuff that's it. So just, right across Easton, is muddy but early in the department, store that has, a lot of brands for younger females, and there's, a lot of domestic brands here's I don't go shopping here at all because obviously, I'm. A man wears actually I'm going to be men's thinking, you can actually get to as well now, let's walk towards Takashimaya, which is on the south exit side of shinjuku station, yeah basically we're heading back to where we started, life is like that sometimes be, ready for a long walk, count, it down three. Two. One. So. We finally made it to the Kashi mile which is a nice departments, or if you want to go souvenir, shopping inside, of it there's a Tokyo hence check, this out it's Takashi Amaya but look right, next to it it's Tokyo, hands awesome. Little, hidden secret that, if you come here on the 12th floor there's an awesome Terrace that you can check out the city it's kind of raining so you can't get like the best few and raining but we've been walking underground. For like a little bit so you might want to come up here get some fresh air and my, favorite, is the basement floor look, at all these delicious, treats if, you're trying to get to just two custom ayah you don't actually need to go through the underground, like we did earlier well you can do is you can go through around at our gate and just go over there and you arrived, number. Three, Akihabara, one, of my first loves in Tokyo. All. Right we. Made it Akihabara. Still, dry and now we're gonna check out some electronics. If. You're a techie, like me you know you're Dabashi Akiba is a place to go and it's, connected, to both jr. and the subway exit freaking, convenient. Doing. Yo-yo paddles. It's freaking awesome. So. We finally made it to Akihabara. At yota bossy camera, it's right next to the station so definitely, not gonna get wet this total, of nine floors, six, of it which is all electronic. Stuff and then the top Lords have like restaurants. And all sorts of other cool stuff personally, I don't shop at Yoda washi camera a lot because I live in Shibuya, and we have in the Ameritech E and big camera, but they also have a pretty cool selection, here and I, actually did buy my drone from here actually well I bought, it online from. University camera because they had the cheapest price at the time let's, go check inside. Doesn't. Even look like an electronic, story in here it feels like it's an airport anyone need a computer bag all this, is computer bag it's freaking crazy.
There's. So many perfumes, and cosmetics here, this is the first time your girlfriend or your wife will, want to go to electronics, store with you. This. Is like one huge toy store kids are gonna love this place and. Surprising, enough there's so much food on the seventh floor there's Korean, the Japanese, there's, Thai food there's soba, there's udon didn't even have steak here it's great everything, you would want on the. Top floor there's a coffee shop -. Hole-in-one. Number. Four lacoya. Lacroix, is known as a spa, but it's actually, almost like a theme park with rides and a huge shopping, mall. All. Right we just made it to Kotaku, and we're trying to get the liquor and the pool is, just right, past over, there and the problem is there's a little cross street that doesn't, have, overhead. Protection so, you're gonna get wet if you don't have an umbrella so, we're gonna have to find a different way damn, sorry, guys I couldn't find a way with a covered path for those who don't mind getting wet for a few meters this, is how to get to Nagoya sad to say but I'm crossing, this one off our top-10 list number. 408. Owens in Odaiba, I hope you liked this alternative, oh wait oh onsen, is an Ito themed spa Oh me is a closest, station but you have to walk in the rain so I'm gonna let you in on a little secret until, your suit we just got through the Association, our journey doesn't end. We have, another form of transportation but, we're not gonna get wet doing, it let me show you how all right, here's, the cool little path I found and it all leads to a dry covered, shuttle bus pickup there are several pickup, locations, in Tokyo, but this is only place he don't need an umbrella it was a bit, sketchy, but we made it and look behind me there's the bus stop and it's gonna take us to, a widow onsen, the unique Mme is another, way to get to this bus stop but right behind me there's, a little gap you might get wet so we're not gonna go that route remember, it's bus number 12.

Just right there is being a sport that's the way to go but unfortunately there's no covered area and we're gonna get wet so what we're gonna do is we're gonna take an elevator down to the first floor and then, use the, tunnel under here to get to being a sport. We. Made it to be the sport I'm super, excited for this they got some pretty cool cars, I'm excited, to see that all, right let's go check out what's inside. This. Is the mega web Tokyo city showcase, and, you get to check out all these cool concept, cars look at that it's so cool, it's. More than just an exhibition of the latest cars but there are so many cool hands-on, activities, car simulators, and they even have a ride Seto for kids who want to experience what it's like to drive them this.

And you never forget to mention all, of this is free I love Toyota now. Let's, check out the main shopping area. Feel. Like I'm in like some European, contrary. And I love the, sky.

And Tokyo Skytree, station, will get you Tokyo Skytree people, think that Sky Tree is just about having a panoramic, view of the city from a tower but it's a pretty fun shopping mall and entertainment. Center, so. We just got the Osheaga station, and we're going to Tokyo, Skytree and, guess what we're, still not wet.
Even. Though it's a rainy day and we're gonna see how good the weather is and how good the view is I don't expect it to be that good but I just wanted to show you guys around if you guys don't even want to go all the way to the top there's like plenty, of stuff to do here all day which, I'll show you in just a second all right let's, go. Wow. Amazing we, got. All. Right so we made it to the top and as expected there, is no. Of you this is like all pod so you're looking pretty much as like a frosted, glass. I'm. So scared of heights that wasn't really tough for me to do got freaked out. So. This is sort of machi there's, restaurant, clothing shops and, there's, also souvenir, shops look, you, can even get a mari on crave awesome. And. They got a jump shop - i'm virtual reality park and, if you got kids you can drop the wrasses off here the kid park. And.

Good this is, big camera and check how close we are it's right. Behind. Me right here let's go inside. Alright. One of my favorite things to do in electronic, storage get a 15, minute massage Oh three, so one thing I've noticed about the adductor big camera is a little bit smaller than, the akihabara yoda basi camera so there's probably a lot less selection, at the same time there's, actually a lot less people so maybe it's worth coming here that it is going to that busier place it's, starting, now time, to get our massage, on. So. That was pretty cool going, to big camera, so this was. A station that we walked into if, you just walk a little bit right here is. A, Tokyo, International Forum. Let's check it out. This. Long and spacious path via Tokyo forum actually, leads all the way to Tokyo Station, isn't. It convenient and, for. Those art lovers there's meat so item, museum all right let's check out the next place and. Look. At this architectural. Masterpiece. I love. It it's not like you can do anything here, but it's just like a free open, public space and you can go to and, sometimes they have like cool events going on here as well so maybe if you come here on that weekend or weekday, you might find something really cool.
This. Little shop area is like a blast from the past you feel like you're in the 1980s, or maybe even way. Before that it has a lot of these like old school stores, and it also has the shop called antenna shops these antenna shops sell, goods from these local areas like, behind me Hakata, which is known for men taiko which is super delicious and I just saw the one down there from Toyama so, cool. So, we just left that blast from the past in, the 1980s. And we're heading to Ito show which has a lot of like restaurants. Just right in front of me. Actually. Like this bakery so I'm gonna go break some bread home and me. The. Baton me lay falou. On. The basement floor there's a lot of desserts that worth trying not to come here also, if you want you can bring them home and then serve them up as souvenirs to all your friends and family when you get back but. I got, my own souvenir, and I'm gonna eat it right now cuz I'm super, hungry Oh. Iam feel you, know like mad, sweetness. Like about to hit my mouth I know, it. The. First thing you notice is I cruel a topping, here and then the creamy it's you and then super, good I love, Tokyo, and like all these little places that you can find and we're still not, wet. So. Maruti is another girly shopping building and it's connected to eat osha which has a variety of restaurants. Number. Eight Roppongi, the, city of luxury, Roppongi. Hills has a direct, connection for subway lines so you should definitely consider this place for your rainy day adventure. Alright. We're, a funky station, let's see what's here to get to our punky hills take the Siwon exit from the station the main shopping area west wall is via this cool stairway, to heaven escalator, I love, the design so. We. Just made it to Roppongi. Hills and, we're still, freaking. Drive there's, actually so much to do here I've actually made a top, ten video under funky including. Roppongi, Hills I'll leave that in, the description so, that you guys can check it out but in the meantime let, me just show you a few cool things here IRA buggy else so, besides all the high-end shopping the funky hills is a great place to find great eats you would think that there are only high-end shops here but there are many casual, restaurants, in the north basement, floor. So. This is a putting ramen I've actually never been to this one I've been to the 100 G cool I love this place and you guys if you have a chance to come to Roppongi go, to this place and they, even have this open terrace space and, it's. Free now. Let, me show you how to get to Tokyo Midtown. So. That's for punky hills but we actually want to go to Midtown as well we just went up to exit, or but. The problem, is and you can't actually get to Midtown unless, you go above ground so, we, need to backtrack you need to go through. He'd be aligned station, platform, and get up on the other side because, look at this behind, me. It's. Raining you got to go back. So. We just made it to the other side of our punky station, on the rapun key crossing, gate side now, we get to go to mid time so. From here, walk towards exit, seven and eight just follow the sign and you won't get lost. You. Can either go up from the basement floor here, which is a food floor for those wanting to grab a snack or you can take the escalator to the ground floor so many, options. Yes. We, made it to Tokyo Midtown and, right behind me as a Galleria, which is a department. Store it was quite a walk from Roppongi, station. You see the class above, me it's, freaking beautiful I love the architecture here number. Nine modern, oog buildings modern, OG buildings are connected to Tokyo Station there, are two of them. We. Just got the modern og station and we're gonna go check out my to be do they have a lot of cool shops and some good restaurants, and I'm getting kind of asleep since this area is predominantly. A business, district a lot of the stores here are very. Get, her to the business men and women oops.

We just made it to the 35th, floor of my new building this is one of my favorite, spot you actually get a really, really great view here unfortunately it's raining so you can't really see a lot but at night you get enough, of you where the lights are shining in all the buildings that it's still pretty cool, and this, is an older building it. Looks a little older but to me it still looks pretty new what. Do you think. This. Place I really, really, love it's called vo this area is a business district like I said before and, so you get a lot of salary man come here for lunch for. Dinner the prices are very important.
