A dynamic metropolis of old and new

Tokyo is the vibrant heart of Japan, seamlessly fusing tradition and innovation. From historic temples to modern skyscrapers, it's a city of endless possibilities.

Tokyo seamlessly blends tradition and modernity, making it a unique travel experience. Visitors can step back in time by exploring historic neighbourhoods like Asakusa, where the Senso-ji Temple stands as a symbol of ancient Japan. Meanwhile, in the futuristic district of Shibuya, iconic pedestrian crossings and neon lights showcase Tokyo's cutting-edge side, likewise Akihabara, known as Tokyo’s “Electric City” enamours visitors with its gaming arcades, themed cafes, and electronics stores.

Tokyo is a food lover's paradise. From savouring sushi at the world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market, sampling gyoza at a yatai (food cart), to enjoying traditional ramen at a local shokudo (small, family run restaurant), the city offers a culinary adventure like no other. Be sure to explore the narrow streets of Yakitori Alley, where you can indulge in delicious grilled skewers and mingle with locals.

Immerse yourself in Japanese culture by attending a traditional tea ceremony or watching a sumo wrestling match. The city is also home to world-class museums, such as the Tokyo National Museum, which contains an extensive collection of Asian art and artifacts.

Tokyo is, of course, a fashion capital, and there are endless opportunities for shopping. From luxury boutiques in Ginza to quirky fashion in Harajuku, there's something for everyone. Check out the lively stalls of Ameya-Yokocho Market for unique souvenirs.

Despite its urban sprawl and predominantly contemporary architecture, there are serene escapes around every corner in this bustling metropolis. Ueno Park boasts cherry blossoms in spring, while the Meiji Shrine's forested surroundings provide a peaceful retreat. A day trip to Nikko National Park allows visitors to witness stunning waterfalls and tranquil lakes, whilst in the city itself there is the beautiful Showa Kinen Park, which has multiple themed gardens and bicycles for rent.

The city's efficient public transportation system, including the iconic shinkansen (bullet train) and the beautifully efficient Tokyo Metro underground railway, ensures easy access to Tokyo's many attractions and nearby cities.
