Japan’s whirling, technicolour capital is a temple of progress...though temples and parks offer quiet refuge within the city.
It’s a blaze; a melange of people, sub-cultures and districts colliding to form one of the most dizzying cities on the planet; a good time city where food is a religion, business is big, and shopping is serious. Yet for all its complexity, it all seems to run spookily smoothly – the term ordered chaos must surely have evolved in Tokyo. From the zippy suits of Shinjuku to the ancient air of Asakusa and the hipster hangouts in Harajuku, this is a place with many faces.
Like most great capitals, Tokyo is any number of contradictions. If you’re flying all this way we’d highly recommend stopping by to breathe it all in. We guarantee you’ve never seen anything like it before.
