The Pacific Rim’s capital of finance, commerce, retail, and technology, Tokyo is a manic blend of pop-culture and history. Tokyo is sometimes called “a city of cities” because it consists of 26 cities located within one metropolitan area—each with its own unique character.
From the fashion-forward streets of Harajuku to the anime-themed shopping centers of Akihabara, Tokyo presents endless opportunities for people watching.
Tired of the crowds? Seek refuge from the bustle of urban life by visiting one of the shrines and temples located throughout the city or exploring peaceful residential neighborhoods sprinkled with cafés and gardens.
