Tokyo

Call 01242 547 914 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Tokyo's web of contrasting neighbourhoods (over 50 in total) present hugely different subcultures in the form of music, art, customs and fashion. The child in you will appreciate Akihabara, where anime and manga cartoons stare insolently down from every billboard. Busy, bewildering and in your face, the neighbourhoods of Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ginza are lit up in neon, and it's here you can buy just about anything under the sun. Harajuku, famous for its outrageous fashion sense, is wonderfully eccentric, and you could easily lose an afternoon just checking out the scenery. Escape the bustle in Ebisu and Daikanyama, whose small winding streets are lined with patisseries, coffee shops and restaurants.
 
From its super-modern skyscrapers to Zen gardens and bullet trains, Tokyo is a world of contrasts in one city. Take in a café in Harajuku, watching the passing fashion mavens who rival any catwalk in Paris or Milan. We like taking a trip outside the city to Mount Fuji, which continually makes its presence known, peering between skyscrapers. The highest mountain in Japan, Fuji is frequently visited by artists desperate to capture its savage, fascinating beauty. Visit the Meiji-jung_, the largest Shintõ shrine in Tokyo, or zoom up The Sky Tree, the world's tallest tower at 634m, giving amazing views across the city. Later take in a sumo tournament at Ryogoku Stadium, dining afterwards at Chanko Kirishima - a post-sumo institution.
