The Tokyo most will be familiar with is that place of shimmering skyscrapers, dazzling neon signage and streets thronging with traffic and hordes of pedestrians. But among the urban hyperactivity, pockets of serenity and traditional culture reveal themselves.

Tokyo is a city of extremes. The world’s biggest metropolis, it’s where technology moves at the same velocity as the iconic bullet trains and fashions fade as quickly as they arrive. Discover the multimedia Mecca of Akihabara, a paradise for gadget lovers and anime enthusiasts. Experience the dizzying pace of the subway system and Shibuya Crossing, otherwise known as ‘the scramble’. Then when you’re ready for respite, take a calming stroll through a tranquil Japanese Garden. Gaze at the glassy lakes and candy floss-coloured cherry blossom trees. Visit beautiful temples and serene Shinto shrines. Or feel your tensions evaporate while immersed in soothing hot spring waters. Choose the speed to suit you and embrace the fascinating contrasts of Japan’s captivating capital.
