Welcome to the future! Tokyo is at the forefront of technology, fashion, food and culture. The sights, sounds and smells and crazy pace should be overwhelming, yet they’re not. There is something eminently welcoming about this city – it is clean and safe and easy to navigate. Come on, jump in!

Shibuya Crossing (also known as The Scramble) is claimed to be the busiest intersection in the world. It’s the quintessential image of Tokyo – neon signs, people rushing in every direction, and hectic traffic. You haven’t visited Tokyo without coming here.

The pinnacle of futuristic architecture can be found in the Tokyo Sky Tree – the world’s tallest free standing tower. Two observation decks offer views all the way to Mount Fuji on a clear day, and across the sea of lights of the city at night.

Visit the neighbourhood of Harajuku to marvel at the extremes of fashion and culture. Indulge in some of the best meals on your life in one of Tokyo’s many Michelin starred restaurants – there’s more in this city than any other.

This futuristic city is proud of its history, and has preserved some very important elements. There’s multiple temples you should visit, and the Imperial Palace is sure to impress.
