Tokyo Trip part 3

We’ve narrowed our Tokyo hotel search to two neighborhoods, Shinjuku and Shibuya. Shinjuku is one of the main entertainment districts with a lot of food & shopping. It also has a famous park and a famous temple. Shibuya is one of the main entertainment districts with a lot of food & shopping. It also has a famous park and a famous temple. If they sound exactly the same, that’s because what little I’ve seen describes both areas in the same ways. The big difference seems to be that Shinjuku has one of the red light districts and Shibuya has a famous crosswalk.

When Ryan finds out about the red light district, he’s going to vote for Shinjuku. He loves going into red light districts, for some reason. He doesn’t do anything he’s not supposed to do. He just likes to look around. He spent way too much time in Amsterdam’s red light district as far as I’m concerned. I don’t want him to miss the rest of Tokyo.

No one’s going to vote for the famous crosswalk. It’s in every movie set in Tokyo, but that’s not enough of a reason to stay there. I think a crosswalk is about as exciting as a street lamp.

The bad news, or maybe it’s good news, is that both neighborhoods have far too many hotels. We’ve narrowed our search, so we can ignore most of the hotels in Tokyo, but we still have about a million to choose from.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
