Stepping into the mysteriously beautiful Japan feels like taking your first step into the realm of endless discoveries. Famed as the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’, this country is a surprising combination of the old and new, harmony and chaos, high-tech, fast-growing cities and laid-back landscapes, great food and festivities. Add to it the right amount of eccentricity and you are bound to come back for more! Apart from its cultural identity and historic importance kept intact in the generous amount of Shinto shrines and temples sprinkled across the country, Japan’s natural marvels are incredibly diverse too and worth a special mention. From the serene beaches of Okinawa to the wilderness in Hokkaido, from the raw and snowy beauty of Mt. Fuji to serene zen gardens sandwiched between the present-time hi-tech settings, from the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest to the world’s most beautiful waterfalls, there is an abundance of naturally blessed places to visit in Japan that must be on your travel itinerary. While most people like to kick off their travelling adventure in the famous Japan Attractions like Osaka or Tokyo, the other few take the road less travelled and visit the historic cities of Kyoto and Nara or the naturally rich Nikkō and Yoshinoyama. But nothing beats the appeal of its capital Tokyo and its chaotic, vibrant and overwhelming city vibes.
Representing the perfect metaphor for a great sci-fi movie, Tokyo is the country’s beating vibrant heart and one of the world’s most populous cities with a sea of skyscrapers lit bright, multi-coloured streets and establishments. Always packed with tourists and locals alike, the city offers a plethora of opportunities to see, eat, shop and explore, proving why every Japan trip ever starts with Tokyo. The history lovers find themselves busy exploring the corky museums, grand temples and shrines while the modern-day travellers find their portion of fun in the modern and futuristic Tokyo Attractions that resemble the streetscapes of a Blade Runner movie. Spare your quality time to see the unmissable places to visit in Tokyo, a few of which include the city’s gaming district- Akihabara, Meiji Shrine, Senso-Ji Temple, Ueno Park, known for cherry blossom viewing in Spring, Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Disneyland. Also, don't think about visiting Japan and not trying the street food in Tokyo or not enjoying a Tokyo pub crawl where you will be delighted to try some of the most interesting retro beverages. These are just a few reasons why to see Tokyo during your Japan trip but the list of travel experiences is endless.
