Start Here

Start Here No. 23

Take 23 seconds to look up from your phone and discover something wonderful.

Wrong turns, happy accidents and larks are more valuable than any guidebook. So put that itinerary down. It’s time to discover Tokyo your way. Through random adventure, unexpected culture and a twist of fate. At Section L, there is an infinite number of ways to start. Here’s a few of our favorites.

Yamanote Bingo

The Yamanote Rail Loop has been connecting Tokyo since 1885.  Along these tracks are countless brilliant spots to eat, drink, shop, people watch, eat some more and just wander. Rather than a simple list, we put together a custom game of bingo. Don’t forget to shout BINGO when you hit it — or else it didn’t happen.

On your social media (i.e. Instagram), post your cool discovery / activity around the station of your choice. Then tag @staysection_l #bingosection_l

Happy exploring and enjoy the admiration on social.

You don’t have to be huge to think big. Enroll in an amateur sumo wrestling class no matter how small you might be.
