Shay Mitchell and Cara Delevingne Are Turning Tokyo Into the Most Instagram-Friendly Vacation Spot

Tokyo appears to be the Instagram playground of choice for celebrities right now. Between attempts to capture the sakura (or cherry blossoms) in full bloom, trips to the city’s Instagram-friendly digital art museum created by Japanese art collective teamLab, and the celebration of brand-new fashion flagship openings, there are so many stars documenting their visits to Tokyo and its surrounding prefectures that it’s getting more difficult with each passing day to scroll through the app and not feel pangs of envy. Fresh off the heels of Tokyo Fashion Week Fall 2019, everyone from Ringo Starr and Sabrina Carpenter to Cara Delevingne and Shay Mitchell have converted their Instagram grids into some sort of cherry blossom-filled paradise. Even Rashida Jones and Ezra Koenig (who both appeared to be in the city for separate business reasons) showed up in Tokyo this week. See why cherry blossom season has all of your favorite celebrities flocking to Japan, here.
