About Tokyo

Tokyo is a city of superlatives. The world’s largest metropolitan area bursts at the seams. Everywhere you look there is something new and exciting. Bright lights and glamour, fashion and art, Tokyo is relentlessly modern. Yet walk a few blocks and you’re awash in its history. Temples, shrines, and glorious parks abound. There is literally something for everyone in Japan’s capital. In springtime the cherry blossoms fill Ueno Park. Summer’s long nights are perfect for strolling the famous shops and restaurants in Shinjuku. Fall’s excitement is palpable as temperatures break and the city’s nightlife is in full swing. In winter, Tokyo’s hot springs are a true delight and nearby Mount Fuji is absolutely stunning. Whether you’re a Japanophile or just someone who appreciates the simple things in life, you can find what you’re looking for in Tokyo.

Trip Moments

Lena_Sagittarius   
As a member of Jay Chou's sunset red fan, I came to Tokyo and started business. The most exciting moment in the whole MV is when the heroine and the actor are dating, the heroine's gentle finger, the picture is fixed at the time, the sharp-eyed person has found the brand behind the Ginza commercial street in the valley, so I I specially looked for a morning time and strolled around the valley. Shibuya Ginza Commercial Street is a small street. There are some craft shops and restaurants on both sides of the street. How many tourists are affected by the MV, and the tourists in this area are slowly getting more. A lot of people will take pictures when they pass by the stone steps. At that time, they met a woman who took a self-portrait for a long time. It is also a fan of Jay Chou. Near sunset, the scenery of the stone steps is super beautiful, the sunset has been coated with a layer of golden yellow on the roof, and the pictures in the store are still looming with the imprint of the Showa era, people are slowly on the street. Walking, stray cats lay in the shade and sleep late. If you just leave the shopping street and leave, you will definitely miss a lot of fun. In fact, there is a lot of old buildings in the late Edo period, old-fashioned buildings built in the woods, and there are many temples and cemeteries, but it will not be terrible during the day, but it is very quiet. Shibuya has recommendations on Lonely Planet. If you want to experience the city, you can do it here. Traffic Raiders: JR Nippori Station or Subway Millennium Station
