One of the most populous metropolitan cities in the world, Tokyo has been the capital of Japan since the Meiji Restoration of 1868 overtaking Kyoto as the center of politics and economy. The city never stops attracting you with its endlessly lasting shopping streets, historical shrines, traditional theaters, top-notch cuisines and more. Being accessible directly from just about every airport in big cities around the world, you will always be greeted by the lively atmosphere of Tokyo.
Consider visiting Shibuya, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Ginza or more for shopping. Each shopping district has a distinctive strong field. Your guide will tell you which one to go. Feel the history in Sensoji Temple in the Asakusa district, Tokyo’s oldest and arguably the most popular Buddhist temple while enjoying browsing miscellaneous shops lined towards the temple entrance. Be amazed by a sophisticated Kabuki performance and spectacular sumo battles. Taste sushi, tempura and teppanyaki prepared by chefs who make a living in one of the most competitive culinary cities in Japan.
