Tokyo, dazzling culture and passion

Yoking past and future of Japan

The capital of Japan has a somewhat confused identity as both a hub of technology and a stronghold of tradition. This dual identity has resulted in it boasting a wealth of tourist attractions from our times and times past.

At the heart of Tokyo is the Imperial Palace, the residence of the Emperor. Visitors have the opportunity to tour its gardens and observe its structures from afar.

Previously the tallest building in Tokyo, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office, where visitors can save money by taking advantage of its free observation decks.

The world's tallest tower and second tallest structure, the recently built Tokyo Skytree offers unmatched views of Tokyo.

the National Museum of Tokyo is the largest art gallery in the country and features over 100,000 art works with an emphasis on Japanese art.

Meiji Shrine, located in 170 acres of forest within Tokyo, dazzling culture and passion, is a sanctuary of peace, a shrine to Japan's first modern Emperor, whose spirit is believed to rest here.

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is another retreat from the crowds and stress of the city, this is in fact a collection of gardens of exceptional beauty.

While Shinjuku Gyoen is a place of beauty and tranquility, Yoyogi park's reputation is more as a vibrant place of meeting and amateur performing arts.

Made famous in numerous films, the Shibuya crossing is also well-known for its constant and tumultuous crowds; nowhere is Tokyo's industry and liveliness more acutely experienced.

This artificial island of Odaiba is home to a large number of shops, restaurants and entertainments, including Venus Fort, a shopping centre ambitiously designed in the style of a town in 18th century Europe.

One of the most visited theme parks in the world; Disneyland Tokyo, dazzling culture and passion, offers some welcome light entertainment alongside the more serious sightseeing missions.
