Tokyo is a fast-paced, futuristic sensory experience, where robot restaurants, high-speed trains and busy intersections, like the giant neon-lit Shibuya crossing, prevail. At the same time, it’s a city of calm and poise, where tradition, artistry, heritage and craft are continuously honored. It has gorgeous parks and runs, sakura-lined canals, stunning Shinto shrines and long-established markets, like Asakusa and Tsukiji, that make this Japanese capital city, impossibly alluring and unique.
