Tokyo, Japan: What to see and do
The metropolis of Tokyo is a flurry of sights and activity, hosting attractions ranging from the old to the new within an area of over 2,000 square kilometres that stretches from the western mountains to Tokyo Bay in the east. The amber spire of the Tokyo Tower is clearly outlined against the sea of skyscrapers that dominate the skyline and from the 150-metre high main observation deck, you can have a bird’s eye view of the city. There is no better way to explore Tokyo than to take to the streets and discover its novelties – be it a themed cafe featuring maids in Victorian-era dresses, a public bath with hot spring water, or sushi bars where you can watch master chefs craft delicate pieces of nigiri. Shinjuku and Shibuya are popular districts for partying, shopping, and entertainment; Akihabara is the centre of Japan’s otaku culture and is filled with stores dedicated to anime, manga, and electronics; while Harajuku is a fashion capital where youngsters and cosplayers gather to showcase their eccentric outfits. An extensive train network connects most areas within Central Tokyo, and you can conveniently travel around by using a prepaid fare card.
Besides the trendy urban lifestyle, there are still many facets of Tokyo to be uncovered. Within the sprawling megalopolis, bits and pieces of history exist within old buildings and pockets of nature provide a reprieve from the modern landscape. Imagine the days when the Tokugawa shoguns ruled over Japan as you walk around the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace. Enjoy a quiet stroll at Meiji Shrine past wooded forests, Shinto shrines, and the Meiji Jingu Treasure House that has an exhibit of Emperor Meiji’s and Empress Shoken’s personal belongings. Next to Tokyo Dome, you will find one of Tokyo’s oldest gardens, Koishikawa Korakuen, built during the early Edo period. It is a great place for sightseeing especially from late March to early April when the cherry trees start to blossom, grow laden with flowers, and slowly shed their petals, blanketing the ground with a fine dusting of pink.
