What to do in Tokyo
Japan’s Tokyo is a top tourist destination in the world for many reasons. From skyscrapers to cherry blossom parks and palaces to humble onsens (hot springs), Tokyo will give you a true taste of Japan’s history and culture. It’s one of those rare cities that can cater to all types of travellers, so we’re sure you’ll love it here too.
Tokyo is chockfull of different sites. If you’re looking for panoramic views of the city, take your pick of viewing spots like the famous Tokyo Skytree, the Tokyo Tower, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, and the city’s World Trade Center Building.
Lose yourself next in the dazzling neon jungle of Shibuya and east Shinjuku. Fashionistas, trendsetters and shopaholics will be in heaven at the hip Harajuku and Omotesando. Are you an anime fanatic? Then a visit to Akihabara and Nakano districts is a must.
Enjoy a soak and feel the stress leave you in a local sento (public baths) or at the onsen theme parks such as LaQua or Oedo Onsen Monogatari. But if you want theme parks that are filled with your favourite characters, don’t miss Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo DisneySea, and Sanrio Puroland. See some of Japan’s other iconic characters at the Ghibli Studios Museum too.
Need a city break? Take a boat ride at the lovely Inokashira Park, and stroll through the Imperial Palace’s East Gardens. Once you’re refreshed, go on a food and pub-crawl at the Tsukiji Fish Market and Roppongi.
