Shaking Shrines, “Amichari” and Japanese Lion King in Tokyo

Urban pleasures are very different to wilderness pleasures… Although we have a preference for the outdoors, we would not forgo the chance to experience the “Amichari”, watch the Lion King Musical in Japanese or observe traditional religious parades on the streets of this buzzing “megalopole”.
