I Walked 100km Across Tokyo in 3 Days

I am Jacob Laukaitis, a 21 years old digital nomad, who’s already been to more than 30 countries in the past 2 years. The main reason why I can travel is the company I co-founded, ChameleonJohn.com, because of the flexibility and remote income that it provides. Because of this, I can travel for 9-10 months a year.

I made the video because I simply love walking.

Every time I go to a new place I spend hours and hours walking. Since Tokyo in Japan is one of my favorite cities in the world, I decided to walk at least 100 kilometers and film it. So that’s exactly what I did.

There really isn’t a single reason what makes this city so great.  I love pretty much everything about Tokyo – from its parks and markets to its housing neighborhoods and temples. It’s one of the biggest cities in the world yet it’s so peaceful, nice and calm. When you go into one of the parks you feel as if you’re somewhere in the country-side, hanging out in a beautiful forest, not in a massive city.

One of the biggest challenges I faced was the heavy tripod that’s definitely not meant to be traveled with, which made my back hurt quite a bit. Also, 2 of those days I walked with my slippers and the 3rd – with really crappy shoes. So my feet were not too happy with the process and thus I had to use more than a dozen bandage aids. However, all of this is nothing compared to what I’ve experienced.

The only thing that I don’t like about Tokyo is a lack of trash-bins. However, mini marts are plenty and all of them have trash-bins, so it’s not a problem after all. Tokyo is simply great.
