Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, Tsukiji Market (Day 5)

First on today’s list is the two of the famous structures here in Tokyo. Which of course, we can not miss! Say hello to Tokyo Skytree! The world’s tallest tower in 2011. And then, Tokyo Tower!

Calaguas Island

I love going to the beach, that’s a fact. And since my birthday is around the corner, I decided to cross this one out of my list already. If you’re wondering how this one got into my list, that’s another story! 🙂 Okay, so how do I even begin describing this place? I have been to several…
