Tokyo
Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis is one of the 47prefectures of Japan and is located on the eastern side of the main island Honshū.

Tokyo was originally known as Edo. It was small fishing village, which later on became the home to the Japanese Imperial dynasty. It is the largest city of the country and also one of the main administrative regions of Japan. The Tokyo metropolis consists of three main parts, which include 23 special wards, the Tama Area and the islands. Located in the center of the Japanese archipelago, the city is bordered by the Edogawa River, Tamagawa River, Chiba Prefecture, Yamanashi Prefecture, Kanagawa Prefecture and the Saitama Prefecture.

Tokyo lies in the humid subtropical climate zone with hot humid summers and generally mild winters with cool spells.

From the hectic multi-road crossing at Shinjuku (made famous in Lost in Translation) to the peaceful tree filled gardens at the Meiji Shrine, the city’s key sights are varied and mesmerizing.

The wide tree-lined streets of Ginza are synonymous with the Japanese’s favorite hobby; sheer, unadulterated shopping. Despite being destroyed in the 1923 earthquake, the area soon sprung back with designer shops, famous department stores and tiny exclusive boutiques to inspire even the most ‘yen conscious’ of visitors.

Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden was originally created for the royal family, these are perhaps the most beautiful gardens in Tokyo. The layout is meticulous and breathtaking, with both Japanese and French garden design, an imperial villa and a tropical greenhouse to explore.

To the surprise of many visitors, dining out in Tokyo doesn’t cost the earth. With en estimated 60,000 eateries there is something for every tastebud and budget, from the gastronomic delights of Gordon Ramsay’s or Nobu Matsuhisa’s restaurants to fresh and delicious sushi, served from a stall at the city’s famous fish market.

With tiny Japanese apartments still very much the norm, most Tokyo locals socialise out of the house. This has contributed to the vast array of restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee houses for visitors to discover. From the small and smoky Japanese nomiya bars to the wallet-busting cocktails at the Park Hilton, even long-term visitors can’t run out of new watering holes. If all the live music inspires you, you might want to start making some of your own. Karaoke is still big business in Tokyo, but forget the drunken man serenading a bar full of strangers. In Tokyo the singing is done in small private rooms, with plush seating and excellent sound systems.
