Tokyo’s effortless blend of Japan’s ancient past and it’s desire to fast-forward into the future is what makes this vivid and eclectic city so remarkable.
There’s so many places to visit in Japan, but Tokyo’s iconic capital city offers so much to those who seek the perfect Japan holiday. Discover a city that’s home to more Michelin stars than any other but never boasts about it, a booming fashion capital, or simply be dazzled by the record number of people you can photograph passing through the bustling streets at Shibuya Crossing. If all of that isn’t enough, see it all in one go from the top of the Tokyo Skytree; the world’s tallest tower which stands at a colossal 634 metre height.
Old and new live side by side here. The city itself is home to 1000’s of breathtakingly beautiful Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, with many of them sitting quietly between Tokyo’s mammoth skyscrapers. Follow your sense of smell and you’ll soon find yourself wandering into a wooden ramen noodle bar that’s stood in the same spot for generations, and afterwards why not head over to one of the city’s many, beautiful parks and zen gardens.
The best time to visit Japan is between March and May, as this is when the spring weather brings sunshine and warm temperatures as well as it being the right time to view the cherry blossoms. Outside of this, September through to November is also a great time to visit as the humid summer is easing off to leave behind much milder sunny days and beautiful autumn colours.
