About Tokyo

Including tips for the best time to visit Tokyo

Japan's capital is one of the world's most incredible megacities, with over 13 million residents and a variety of diverse districts. Tokyo's mix of old-world charm and cutting-edge innovation means it has something for everyone.

There's no better place to start experiencing Tokyo's traditions and culture than the ancient temples of Asakusa, the Meiji Shrine (in Harajuku), and Chiyoda's Imperial Palace. An enormous amount of seafood—close to 2,000 tons daily—is traded at the Tsukiji Market, which is also a great place to enjoy a sushi breakfast, before shopping for fresh meat, fruit, vegetables, and flowers.

The city is also home to some great museums like Tokyo's National Museum, which houses a large collection of Japanese art, samurai swords, and colorful kimonos. Film-lovers shouldn't miss the Ghibli Museum, showacsing the work of world-renowned animator Miyazaki Hayao. This space features original sketches, a rooftop garden, and life-size recreations of film sets.

For the best views over the city, take a trip up to the Tokyo Skytree – one of the tallest buildings in the world. The observation deck offers 360-degree views, plus there's a shopping mall and restaurant on other floors below. Then catch a sumo wrestling match in Ryōgoku or visit the rides and attractions at Tokyo Disneyland. Narita Airport is Tokyo's main airport, located 43 miles northeast of the city. The quickest way to travel between them is the Skyliner electric railroad, which takes less than 45 minutes. Some international flights operate from Haneda Airport, though most are domestic.

It can be daunting to English speaker's, but is so worthwhile, the incredibly broad mixture of modern society, Technology and ancient culture all mashed into together in the greater Tokyo Region . Yet people are so polite, respectful and in a city of 30+ miilion people it is so clean, a real credit to the people and their culture. We will go back. Our kids loved it and learnt so much.

March 25, 2019

Tokyo, a unique city for its high-level of electronics and technology even in the most unexpected places (an electronically controlled toilet bowl, with even control of the temperature of the water, control of the flow of water, etc.) Tokyo, a place where you will experience the Japanese culture, especially if you visit a Japanese traditional restaurant; Tokyo, a place where every single person I met was wearing a formal suit... And everybody seemed to be late for a date, so they were all walking very fast.

Contrast between the calm spiritual temple sites and the frantic activity in the streets. Temples and gardens both z must to visit. Many places to eat but for non-Japanese english speaking visitors would recommend that you ask for english translation menu. Younger locals friendly and helpful. Rail network fabulous but take a while to get used to.

March 24, 2019

We stayed 6 days in Tokyo, which we also used for excursions to Nikko and Mt Fuji. This buzzing metropolis which springs to life with its countless lights once the sun goes down has something for everyone - great shops, great food, entertainment, culture, history and arts. It is worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. The Japanese people are also very customer friendly and will try to fulfill your every need. Be warned that some areas can be so busy that agoraphobes had best stand clear. Shuffling two large suitcases through Shinjuku or Tokyo station is a challenge you don’t soon forget ! And the best way to experience it is walk, A LOT! Also be prepared for some challenges in communication: I spent a few months learning some rudimentary Japanese and communication was still very difficult at times.
