Tokyo, Japan. It has to be seen to be believed, never in our lives have we experienced a culture so different from our own, it was honestly like landing on a different planet, a planet we desperately did not want to leave. Thanks to Diesel and The Park Hyatt Hotel we were able to spend 6 amazing days exploring the city, getting to know more about a culture and city we had only really read about, or experienced through films and television.
On our first day we could not wait to get out of the hotel and see the sights, we headed straight to the world famous Shibuya crossing, and experienced all the legendary area had to offer in terms of shopping and atmosphere. Next we headed to Harajuku where we stocked up on amazing Japanese products we had never seen anywhere else. Over the next couple of days we explored all sorts of amazing and inspiring places of Japanese worship, including Ueno Park, which has a temple in the middle of a lake of lotus's, surrounded by skyscrapers. Truly a once in a lifetime experience and completely unforgettable experience. Everywhere we ate we tried to be as authentic, and sometimes as brave, as possible, which actually turned out to be very easy, because everything was delicious! Max even had snake infused Sake, which was... interesting! Karaoke, cat cafe's, and a taste of Japanese nightlife proved to the group of us that there really was no where like Tokyo, and we were determined to make the most of every minute we spent there. We were there, along with YouTuber Oli White, to represent the UK blogging scene at Diesels 30th birthday show, and what a show it was! They took over a warehouse, built a runway and presented us with one of the coolest collections we have ever seen, we will definitely be shooting in it very soon! The party after it was insane, traditional Japanese street food was served with Champagne, and Japanese singers and DJ's provided the music, it was a really special night. We were very lucky to be staying at The Park Hyatt hotel, which has the most famous bar in Tokyo on its top floor, and it was honestly one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The restaurants and bars were incomparable, and the level of service from the staff there was flawless. We could not believe it when it was time to leave, and say goodbye to our new favourite city, the experiences we shared, and the memories we made will stay with us forever.
We also just want to say a huge thank you to all the people who gave us gifts and letters during our stay. It was so nice to meet you and hear all the lovely things you said about our blog, so thank you.
