Tokyo is undeniably one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. What makes Tokyo charming, aside from the whisk of its modern and traditional culture, are the attractions and sites that catch the attention of tourists. And that is exactly one of the reasons why people travel, not just to experience different cultures, but also to enjoy breath-taking views and share those with others. With the presence of social media right now, people can’t help but take a lot of photos to commemorate their travel and post them in an aesthetic way. Thus, the term ‘Instagrammable’ became a thing among social media users.
