Tokyo Travel Tips with Rei Shito

Street fashion photographer and blogger of stylefromtokyo.blogspot.comRei Shito has published two books on the unique street style of Tokyo. Now she shares the best spots to shop, eat and drink as well as those hard-to-find hidden gems in her hometown.

THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TOKYO...Clean, cosy, exciting!

WHEM I'M HUNGRY...

My favourite place to eat is Pignon, a french bistro in Shibuya. It's small, cosy and the chef there, Rinpei-kun is a friend of mine.

A HIDDEN GEM OF THE CITY...

The vintage shop Desperate Living in Shibuya is a great little secret. It's only two minutes from Shibuya station but it's hidden away in a very old building so it's hard to find.

MY FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN A NEW CITY...

I like to go for a walk and watch how people live in a new city. As much as I can, I like to live like the locals.

WHEN I'M NEEDING RETAIL THERAPY...I love to shop at Peaches & Cream - an amazing vintage shop hidden away in the Aoyama area.

MY FAVOURITE CULTURAL HOTSPOTS...

I love Mori Art Museum for its beautiful art and views of the city. It's on the 53rd floor in Roppongi Hills. I recommend visiting in the evening - visit the museum first then take in the view of Tokyo with its incredible lights.

WHEN TRAVELLING I ALWAYS TAKE... 

My camera (FUJIFILM X-T1), iPhone, travel wallet and a book to read.

PERFECT PLACES TO SIP AWAY THE NIGHT IN STYLE...Oak Door in Roppongi is one of my favourites - lovely and yummy!

IF I DIDN'T LIVE HERE I'D STAY AT...

Palace Hotel is sophisticated and stylish and the staff are so kind. It's in the very centre of Tokyo but it feels so calm. When reserving a room make sure you ask for palace views - they're beautiful.

TIPS FOR TRAVEL ORGANISATION...

Always use a travel wallet! I always use mine wherever I go.
