How to visit Tokyo ?

Why traveling there?

Tokyo, Japan's bustling capital, offers a perfect blend of modern living and old traditions. This city is a must-visit destination for anyone who loves technology, fashion, food, and rich cultural history. From the neon-lit streets of Shibuya and Shinjuku to the tranquil beauty of Meiji Shrine and Asakusa’s Senso-ji Temple, Tokyo presents an unending feast of experiences that cater to all types of travellers.

How to get there?

The easiest way to get to Tokyo is by air. The city has two major international airports, Narita and Haneda. Direct flights are available from numerous countries worldwide. Once in Tokyo, you can use the extensive and efficient public transportation system, including trains, subways, and buses, to navigate the city.

What to book in advance?

It's recommended to book your flights, accommodation, and JR Rail Pass (if planning to explore beyond Tokyo) in advance. You may also want to pre-book tickets for popular attractions like the Ghibli Museum, teamLab Borderless, and Tokyo Disneyland to avoid long queues.

What are the costs?

Tokyo can be pricey, but with some planning, it can be affordable. Expect to spend around $100-$200 per day per person on accommodation, meals, transportation, and sightseeing. Meals can range from $10 at a local ramen shop to over $100 at high-end sushi restaurants. Public transportation is efficient and relatively inexpensive, while entrance fees for most major attractions range from $10-$30.

What are the best things to do?

Tokyo is packed with attractions. Visit the historic Asakusa district, explore the high-tech Akihabara, lose yourself in the crowd at Shibuya Crossing, and enjoy the nightlife in Roppongi. Don't miss a visit to the Tsukiji Fish Market, a boat ride on the Sumida River, and a relaxing walk in the beautiful Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

Where to eat?

For sushi, head to Sukiyabashi Jiro in Ginza. For ramen, try Ichiran in Shibuya. For a more local experience, check out the izakayas (Japanese pubs) in the Omoide Yokocho alley in Shinjuku.

Where to stay?

For luxury, book a room at the Park Hyatt Tokyo in Shinjuku or the Aman Tokyo in Chiyoda. For a more budget-friendly option, try the APA Hotel in Ginza or the b Akasaka in Minato.

Off the beaten path

For a unique experience, visit the Ghibli Museum in Mitaka, dedicated to the animated films of Studio Ghibli. It's a bit out of the way, but well worth the trip for fans of Hayao Miyazaki's films. For a more traditional experience, take a day trip to Nikko, a small city in the mountains north of Tokyo, known for its beautiful shrines and natural scenery.
