Many people have been visiting Japan this year since the country is now open to tourism again after 3 years! We hope everyone is enjoying the sites! While you’re in Tokyo, there a lot of famous sites outside of Suginami, but if you’re looking for something off the beaten path, be sure to visit Suginami. Check out our Guides & Trips page for ideas. And if you’re out seeing the famous sites by day and looking for something to eat at night, take a look at our extensive restaurant section in the EAT & DRINK category. We also added a new baked goods page, if you’re looking for delicious snacks on the go.
Happy New Year everyone! We at Experience Suginami Tokyo will continue to bring you local Tokyo information on our best restaurants, unique local day trips, subculture and more. The exchange rate from US Dollars to Japanese Yen is still great, and though Japan is still wearing masks in public, the situation is much safer now. Since tourism is back almost at full force, we recommend you take advantage this year if you can!
