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.

This was a dream vacation fulfilled. Experience Japan Travel did amazing with the itinerary and accomodations. And in the end we got to meet our agent who made t all happen, in Osaka. It was really nice of him to show up, help us with our luggage, and accompany us to our bullet train ride to Tokyo. We had such a great time, saw so many beautiful places, met a number of very nice people and ate so much good food. It was awesome! I admire this beautiful progressive country that is Japan and its hardworking, honest, and most courteous people. I will come back given the chance. Our trip was definitely high-end. We enjoyed everything although I enjoyed Kyoto best. I appreciate my request to do "samurai" was granted at whim. That was so much fun. I would visit other places I haven't been to in Japan but do not mind revisiting Kyoto or Tokyo ( maybe in warmer weather).... READ MORE
