Tokyo

Today, Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors.

Tokyo is Japan’s capital and the world’s most populous metropolis. It is also one of Japan’s 47 prefectures, consisting of 23 central city wards and multiple cities, towns and villages west of the city center. The Izu and Ogasawara Islands are also part of Tokyo.
Prior to 1868, Tokyo was known as Edo. A small castle town in the 16th century, Edo became Japan’s political center in 1603 when Tokugawa Ieyasu established his feudal government there. A few decades later, Edo had grown into one of the world’s most populous cities. With the Meiji Restoration of 1868, the emperor and capital moved from Kyoto to Edo, which was renamed Tokyo (“Eastern Capital”). Large parts of Tokyo were destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and in the air raids of 1945.

 

Today, Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. The city’s history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa, and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Contrary to common perception, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city center and within relatively short train rides at its outskirts.

Scott and his team provided us with a wonderful trip. From the first contact with Scott, he was very responsive to any questions we had. His itinerary was detiled even as to what track our train would depart from, which was quite helpful for a group that has never been to Japan. Scott and Kno (I apologize for the incorrect spelling) were gracious to lead us in a bike tour in Kyoto. We met other tourists from The States, that did a similar tour (Tokyo, Hakone, Hiroshima and Kyoto), but did not experience the culture as we did because Scott made sure that our itinerary was personalized and included such experiences as staying at a ryokan in Hakone, and a lovely lunch on the river and many other experiences that others did not have. The most enjoyable and memorable parts of the tour WAS THE entire experience!!! If we came again, we might have extended our stay at the ryokan.... READ MORE
