About Tokyo

Tokyo is unlike any capitals you have ever been before. Adjacent to the busy financial hub, there are neighborhoods recalling the past with low slung wooden buildings and glowing lanterns; others looks like boring concrete blocks but are actually hiding art galleries or cocktail bars inside. Talking about art galleries, there are plenty of museums covering every era of Japanese history and every aspect of life. The National Museum of Nature and Science is one of the best museums to visit whether you're interested in natural and technological history or not. It not only has the largest, most impressive collection of flora and fossils, but also celebrates technological advancement.

If you enjoy breathing fresh air, wandering around Imperial Palace, Kitanomaru Park or Meiji shrine will suit you. If you are a shopping fan, then surely you can not miss Akihabara, where there are many electronic stores, or Ginza, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro are three places where you can find all fashion brands from luxury, world famous to casual.

When it comes to Tokyo, cuisine tops the experience. There are so much more to the country’s food than just sushi and ramen (though those are all Michelin-standard). Tokyo cuisine excels in all kinds of sea creatures, from sea urchin and crab to eel, and also teppanyaki - on-pan grilled beef and lobster.
