Tokyo is Japan’s ultramodern and busy capital — the most populous metropolitan area in the world. One thing I wanted to do in Tokyo was joining the scramble of people at Shibuya Crossing, the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing. If that’s something that excites you too, then Tokyo is an unmissable destination.
There’s a ton of interesting activities in this city from exploring the quirky youth fashion at Harajuku district, getting immersed in the digital art displays at TeamLab Borderless, experiencing the themed cafes and go-karting at Akihabara to seeing the traditional side of Tokyo at Asakusa district.
Yokohama is one of the best day trip adventures near Tokyo. If you can’t make it to Kyoto during your trip, Kamakura is a decent alternative. Kamakura is often described as the Kyoto of East Japan. It’s easy to visit from Tokyo
Touchdown at either of these two airports that serve Tokyo: Narita International Airport (NRT), which handles the majority of international flights. The more centrally located Haneda Airport handles mostly domestic flights.
