A vast metropolis of futuristic skyscrapers, neon bars, a dazzling skyline, and a hint of ancient tradition, Tokyo holidays are out of this world.
Things to do in Tokyo
- People watch in Yoyogi Park. Brimming with local teens dressed as manga characters, Gothic Lolitas, and rockabilly gangs, Yoyogi Park the ideal spot for taking in quirky Japanese trends.
- Movie buffs should try Karaoke Kan – featured in Lost in Translation – where you will find the Japanese-style private karaoke rooms. If you would rather have a large audience try the bar Smash Hits.
- Have a sushi breakfast at the Tsukiji Market. There’s no better place in Japan to sample this signature dish than the world’s largest fish market.
- Surrounded by forest and often the site of traditional Japanese weddings, the Meiji Shrine is a serene oasis in this bustling metropolis.
Best Time to Visit
Sep-Nov: Temperatures will still be pleasantly warm, but the busy peak season of the summer will be coming to an end. It's not as humid as the summer months easier, which makes outdoor activities more enjoyable. From March-May is similar in terms of weather, but a lot of public holidays during these months make the city quite busy.
Visit around April for the Cherry Blossom Festival and watch as the city parks become a picturesque scene of locals picnicking under the pink trees.
Why We Love It"Tokyo is a truly remarkable city. The skyscrapers, the food, and the culture are all amazing. It's one of the best places I've ever been to just sit back and watch the world go by."
