Tokyo is a wonderfully unique place that needs to be on every traveller’s bucket list. Get lost in this world of neon lights, bold fashion, hundreds of arcades, and some of the best food you'll ever eat. This a city where you can drive Mario Karts through downtown Shibuya, and end your day at a restaurant run by robots.

You can cross the world’s busiest crosswalk and spend the night in a traditional Japanese inn. You can eat sushi from a conveyor belt, delivered by a toy train, or hand-crafted for you by a veteran chef. In the winter, the ski hills are next level, and don’t even get us started on cherry blossom season — its ephemeral beauty only lasts for a couple of weeks!

With historic temples, modern streetscapes, and 47 (!!!) neighbourhoods each with their own vibe and personality, Tokyo is truly awe-inspiring. The energy, pace, and overall excess of everything will blow you away. You may be overwhelmed already, so let our travel guides help you narrow it down. Stay tuned to this page for everything you need to know about Tokyo.
