If a change of scenery is what you’re after, a Tokyo holiday is the perfect place to start. Changing scenes is exactly what Tokyo is all about. Boasting over 50 contrasting neighbourhoods, Tokyo provides a landscape of hugely different subcultures, each with their own take on music, fashion and art. Tour Tokyo’s Akihabara where manga and anime cartoons reign supreme or lose yourself to the dazzling gumbo of neon lights and shopping in neighborhoods like Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ginza. Meanwhile over in Harajuku, an eccentric fashion scene rivals that of Paris or Milan.
For a more leisurely exploration, Ebisu and Daikanyama both boast small winding streets lined with coffee shops and restaurants – the perfect place to relax and catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji between the skyscrapers. For a closer view of this fierce beauty, you can visit the largest Shintõ shrine in Tokyo, the Meiji-jung, or take in the whole city from above at world’s tallest tower, the Sky Tree.
A tailor-made holiday wouldn’t be complete without seeing a sumo tournament at Ryogoku Stadium followed by dinner at Chanko Kirishima – a post-sumo institution.
