Of the 17 walks in this book we did 5. Temperatures in July/August, 2018 were hovering around 35 Celsius and 40 real feel so lots of sweating going on to say the least. Drink lots of water, wear breathables, good shoes and a hat! Or go in spring or fall and be smarter than us. Here's our comments on the 5 walks we did: 1. The walk from Kamakura to Enoshima was incredibly long: more than 33,000 steps to be precise (although I am including our commute from Tokyo Station). Something tells me that's a bit much for most. My girlfriend's knee started to seize up towards the end....Kamakura and its incredible temples were well worth it while the Enoshima island part could have been skipped. 2. The Yanaka/Ueno walk was 19,417 steps. Easy compared to the last one. The highlights here consist of the Yanaka cemetery, the fantastic Asakure Sculpture Museum, the over-crowded yet essential Tokyo National Museum and the lively working class area of Ameya Yokocho and its shopping deals. 3. Shibuya/Ebisu and Asakusa. We did 2 walks today. 24, 981 steps. Highlights of Shibuya/Yebisu here are the famous Shibuya crossing, the insanely busy teenage fashion shopping district curiosity (of course we didn't shop here, we are both a bit aged for that), the Myth of Tomorrow painting of the Hiroshima bombing, and the Yebisu beer museum. Beer tasted very good at the end of the walk to say the least. We hopped on the train and headed to Asakusa afterwards and saw the beautiful Senso-ji temple. At the end of the day, well into the evening we went up the Tokyo SkyTree. The second tallest structure in the world. Impressive to see the skyline lit up at night, Metro Tokyo as far as you can see. It's like the New York skyline times 10! Expect crowds here though. 5. Shinjuku. 23,089 steps. The 45th floor Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office offered us daylight panoramic views. Tried so hard to see almost always clouded Fuji, but no such luck. We got a perfect view of it on the plane home though! The new modern Mode Gakuen Coccoon Tower is impressive, yes it looks like a coccoon. The fantastic bookstore of Kunikiya in the shopping district is fundamental if you need a book browsing boost. The Shinjuku National Garden we could not visit, it closes at 430, so be careful not to make our mistake! It's supposed to be very nice...:( After dark, the Golden Gai area is fantastic for people watching. We skipped that area for drinks though (it's ridiculously expensive). We skipped the recommended yet a bit too kitsch for us Robot Restaurant for 8,000 yen (about 64 euros) each. No way Jose! Better the short walk away to Piss Alley, yes it's really called that. I expected that distinctive smell you always get in pedestrian tunnels around the world, but no such bad luck. It's cheap and friendly here. The sake was good. It did not taste like piss at all. Good book if your are like us and you want pre-arranged walks to follow and get your steps and your kicks at the same time!
