"most expensive city in the world" lists, Tokyo's world-class restaurants and hotels are often priced accordingly. However, the city offers several alternatives, including capsule hotels and the simple guesthouse lodging known as a ryokan. To get a taste of Japan’s cutting-edge position in technology and electronics, a trip to Akihabara, or Electric Town, will awe and inspire any visitor. Transportation to destinations throughout Tokyo is simple, as the city has the most extensive and sophisticated public transportation network in the world. Sushi was invented here, and there's no better place to try it than the Tsukiji fish market (try the sushi breakfast).

The Japanese take great joy in the country’s four distinct seasons, and celebrate each with unique cuisine and traditions. With that said, there are some that are better than others for tourism purposes. Tokyo ... Read more
gets hot, humid, rainy and crowded during the summer. Winter can be chilly, and while not unbearable, you won’t be able to wander around the city’s beautiful parks. Spring sees a lot of local tourism, with crowds pouring into the city to see the cherry blossoms in March and April and during Golden Week in April/May. Fall is truly an ideal season to visit. The weather is comfortable, the skies are blue, and the foliage turns to striking shades of red and gold.

I love everything in Tokyo. Even simply strolling at random places is so much fun. Tokyo is clean, the food is always good as if every foodstore has high quality chef. The people are so nice, kind, polite and helpful. The transportation is amazing, the culture is unique, and the quality of life is high.

What an incredible city. Vibrant. Busy. Illuminated. Natural. And all organized in a fashion that makes it easy for non-Japanese tourists to navigate. The people are kind, the prices are good (despite what many people say) and the food is delicious.

Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful.

I absolutely loved Tokyo - more so than I expected to, honestly. It's bizarre and entertaining and beautiful and so clean! There is always something to see, no matter where you look or where you are. The food is amazing, the people are kind, it's easy to navigate and has one of the most efficient metro systems I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I would love to visit again and explore more of this incredible city.

This is one of my most favorite cities in the world! I was lucky enough to study abroad in nearby Yokohama, so I was able to come to Tokyo often. The atmosphere is so fun and lively. The food is delicious and the culture is amazing. I love the mixture of the cutting edge new meets the traditional old. It's perfect.

Tokyo is an interesting city. Some of the most fine foods in the world, imperial palaces and temples, anime culture, fast pace of city life, and nature are all mixed. For travelers, it's convenient due to the high functioning metro system. Definitely you need more than 5 days to throughly enjoy the city.
