Tokyo Trip: These Shoes Weren’t Made For Walking

I inadvertently showed a little bit more skin on Day 3 of our trip (hence my serious, slightly ashamed look).  That day, I noticed that there weren’t many (if any) women who wore tank tops or halter-style tops.  Before the trip, I didn’t really research the cultural norms when it came to clothing, so I felt a little self-conscious once I realized I was exposing more skin than everyone else.  I think I had to adjust and readjust my top multiple times throughout the day.

One thing I remembered about halter tops:  if they’re knotted too tightly to your neck, they can give you a neckache.  So, ladies, please consider this when buying anything that ties around the neck.

Also, when walking in an endlessly traversable city, please remember to bring your comfortable shoes.  And by comfortable, I don’t mean you can make do for a couple of hours; you should be able to wear these shoes for an entire day of travel.  I ended up wearing these shoes just once during the entire trip.  And once was enough.

We took photos at Tokyo International Forum and later, we went to Nakano for some fun shopping.

More to come!
