Known as one of the most advanced, forward-thinking cities in the world, Tokyo is a massive metropolis that never stops growing. It’s a wonderful blend of cutting-edge modern living and traditional Japanese culture that makes this city so interesting. Visitors seeking the thrill of the modern can see seemingly endless skyscrapers, world-class restaurants, shopping, and a raging nightlife.

Visit the soaring Tokyo Skytree and ride up to the observation level for a jaw-dropping view over Tokyo with all its towers, lights, and glass. For those seeking a more traditional experience, make your way to the Asakusa and Hie Shrines to connect to the spirits of ancient Japan, or head to Kokugikan to take in an authentic sumo wrestling tournament. Stroll through the Shinjuku Gyoen National garden to relax among thick green grass and soft pink cherry blossoms. And of course, no trip to Japan would be complete without fresh sushi, prepared by culinary artists whose knowledge has trickled down through generations of chefs.
