"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 loved my experience in Japan, I wish I could go back! The tiny but homey alleys filled with life, the quiet in the parks and the helpful and hospitable people were all reasons I fell in love with the country. Don’t be afraid to venture outside the city and look in the little pockets of charm in Japan!

Tokyo, as is all of Japan, is beautiful! The architecture is absolutely incredible and scenery overall is a sight to behold.

A truly incredible city of the world that is not to be missed! From its fresh sushi to its temples and parks...from skyscrapers to ramen counters, to unique neighborhoods full of culture, Tokyo is something that must be seen, heard, and tasted to full and lasting effect. It's also wonderfully safe for female travelers as far as large cities go.

I felt safe even alone at night. I love the nightlife as well as fashion. I studied abroad for 3 months and even that was not enough time. I'm going back this year!

Went with friends for a week and can’t wait to go back. Felt welcomed from the minute I stepped off the plane. There is so much organization compared to home. I didn’t know any Japanese (will make sure I learn next time) and still was able to navigate Tokyo by myself.
