Welcome to Tokyo, the capital of Japan and the epitome of the word “megacity.”

In this vast metropolis, ancient traditions blend with futuristic buildings, and your Tokyo sightseeing will take you to representations of each. Pay your respects at temples set in forested hillsides, then flex your credit card in one of the shopping districts, before sitting down to a five-star meal…all in one day.

Your Tokyo tour begins with the subway and train system, which will take you all over this sprawling city. Tokyo is home to some 35 million people, many of which you’ll meet as its public transit carries you throughout its many neighborhoods. Make a stop in Asakusa, a temple district nestled in leafy trees with skyscrapers towering in the background. There you’ll visit Nakamisi Dori, a street loaded with food vendors and religious charms. Get to know the city a little better in the Harajuku district, home to cutting-edge fashion, a thriving, youth-centered culture, and the famous Yoyogi Park. The park stands out in stern contrast to the rest of the neighborhood; this sprawling, 134-acre green space is where locals slow down after a frenzied week of work and play.

As night falls, make your way to Shinjuku. Many of Tokyo’s premier restaurants and pubs span Shinjuku’s streets, and you can indulge in succulent 5-star meals or sample with fast food from local vendors. Watch a movie, do some karaoke, and linger with fellow travelers and friendly locals alike.

  1. I would also recommend seeing the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra. Japan is full of fine musicians and you can see the best there

  2. I just looked up the population of Tokyo just now, and it states that Tokyo has over 37.8 million people, making it the most populated city on Earth

  3. Please guys, do not  rely  of that Jap bitch in the top comment of the video who  says  " please come to Tôkyô and  the other xenophobic cities "  she must have say that  be just  for her blue thumbs . Tokyo is  just a big-ass city where everything are  shitty in reality , more than you think.  The  Streets of Tokyo are labyrinthic, everything are overpriced,  there is Yakuza mafias  who controls some districts , the appartments are tiny and its inhabitants are  execrable people who hate to see   foreigners in their country. thoses yellow-white dwarves are unable to speak in English or another language also.  If you want to "visit" japan, you should  Watch  movies like "Lost in translation" or "Wasabi" or go play to the games "Yakuza" instead. it's also the same thing for the other jap cities: they're all costly and xenophobic in reality. And i'm not a troll. Please  i would like that someone answer me.  it's a popular video and i do not see why  nobody would answer to my comment . this big-ass city is NOT at all a good place to travel, definitely. it's one of the worst places on earth, really.
