About Tokyo


Train delays are measured in seconds in Tokyo, the intricate rail network really is what keeps this town pumping. Each station is a city in miniature: Shibuya bursts with advertisements and commuters. Shinjuku dazzles with experimental couture. And Mitaka is a tiny haven in the shadow of skyscrapers. Overall sensory overload is a real and glorious possibility. Check out the different neighbourhoods, notice their distinct flavours. You will see vibrantly dressed youths ramble past throngs of black-suited office workers. Lovingly tamed trees shade hyper-modern streetscapes. And neon-infused pachinko parlours contrast with ancient Buddhist temples.

With backyards being a rarity, locals get their pet fix at animal-themed cafés.

Each part of the city has a life of its own: Search out the Buddhist temples and colourful festivals in Asakusa, and try out some of the lavish shopping options in Odaiba. The historic is prized here – but the new is king. You will never see it all, but you will see more than you could imagine.

Ordering a restaurant meal using a push-button vending machine is common in Tokyo.
