Tokyo is the capital and largest city in Japan. Its 23 districts have a total of 12 million people but at certain times of the day that number swells to about 14 million, because Tokyo is home to many workers living in the so-called Greater Tokyo. Considered with the cities surrounding Tokyo, this Greater area has more than 34 million inhabitants making it the largest population centre in the world.
Tokyo is one of the most famous cities in the world, being a symbol of Eastern modernity and stylish contemporary Japanese life, but as in other major Japanese cities, particular cultural traditions continue to influence Tokyo’s inhabitants.
Tokyo has an extensive tourism prospectus. Here are some of the highlights:
The Shinjuku district with its illuminated signs streets and filled with thousands of different looking people, is one of the aspects for which the Japanese capital is renowned. Hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars or vistas (such as the one found at the Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku) make the area a must to visit, if you want to experience one of the busiest localities of Tokyo.
The area with more prominence of fashion trends, Shibuya Tokyo is a city full of movement and large commercial premises at street level, centres of all kinds and especially famous places like the chaotic synchronized zebra crossings in the Hachiko neighborhood, named after the statue of the dog that continued to wait for its returning owner for 10 years after he had died!
The Harajuku district, the fashion area, has the best known and luxurious fashion stores in the world. Although usually impressive, it is especially so at weekends, at the Jingu-bashi bridge when people exhibit "cosplay" (an expression of fun and dress)
The most interesting place in Tokyo's historical district, Asakusa, is the Sensoji Temple, the oldest in the city. Moreover around the temple there is Kappabashi Dogugai Street, famous for its plastic renderings of food simulations, which, thanks to surprising reality and fidelity, have become a souvenir target for tourists.
This is the most elite district of Tokyo with very recognizable stores like the Sony and Apple, as well as buildings like Ginza Wako, notable for its western style. There is also the famous Kabuki-za Theatre, where important works are performed daily.
Technological development and Japan have gone hand in hand in recent decades and this is reflected in the district of Akihabara, where you can find all kinds of electronic devices. In addition Akihabara is also the centre of card game sleeve protectors in Tokyo, with hundreds of stores dedicated to it and gatherings known as "otaku" where people masquerade as “manga” characters.
The boulevards and cosmopolitan Tokyo shops are in Roppongi, one of the districts with the biggest selection of nightlife in the city and one of the best places to dine in restaurants of all styles.
On this artificial island is Tokyo’s beach, the interesting Museum of Science and Innovation, the Toyota Museum and the curious Tokyo Statue of Liberty. It is also one of the best spots for great views of the city or enjoying the sunset.
Tsukiji market is the largest fish market in the world, with free access, it is a display of tremendous activity, especially at 5 am when the tuna auction starts. In addition, as recognized by Tokyoites themselves there are some of the best place to eat sushi, citywide.
Tokyo Disney Resort
This resort features two Disney parks, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Tokyo Disneyland was the first Disney theme park to open its doors outside the United States in 1983, and was also added to Disneyland in California. Opened in 2001, Tokyo DisneySea, a theme park inspired by the nautical world, has the distinction of being the world's most expensive park and one of the most visited, receiving an average of 12 million people each year.
Tokyo is an almost inexhaustible hub of activity, with many different things to do and see in every corner of the city, which could take months to discover. So it is a place where, besides going to the most famous places, it’s worth relaxing and spending a few days exploring the streets.
