Harajuku 4.0 stars
Government Building - #1 of 23
Harajuku is supposed to be this place in Tokyo where people exemplify the oddities of fashion. I didn't want to go myself but I was traveling with a younger sister and she did want to go and she wouldn't go alone so I got guilt-tripped into it. ... [more ]
Shinjuku Gyoen 4.0 stars
Park - #2 of 23
For a beautiful afternoon of relaxation in Tokyo visit the Shinjuku Gyoen Park, where one can appreciate immaculate Japanese, English and French style gardens. I visited Shinjuku Gyoen for a group picnic during the Hanami (flower viewing) ... [more ]
Tokyo Tower 2.0 stars
Skyscraper - #3 of 23
The Tokyo Tower looks conspicuously similar to the Eiffel Tower, although all brochures make it a point to let you know that this one is 13 meters taller than the French landmark. The tower is most impressive at night because of all its lights ... [more ]
K?kyo 3.0 stars
Castle, Fortification, Palace - #4 of 23
Home of the Imperial family, the Imperial Palace is the heart and soul of Tokyo. Built on the very spot where Edo Castle used to stand during the days of the Tokugawa shogunate, it became the Imperial home upon its completion in 1888 and is now ... [more ]
Tokyo Midtown 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #5 of 23
Tokyo Midtown in the heart of Roppongi is basically the world's flashiest mall, with a range of upmarket designer stores and a five star hotel right in the middle of it. It's also the only place in Japan where I actually managed to find a square ... [more ]
Yoyogi Park 5.0 stars
Park - #6 of 23
Yoyogi is totally different from any of the other parks in Tokyo. It isn't sculpted, it isn't historical or zen, but it's where all the Tokyoites go to relax and take it easy. Yoyogi is a great place to be when the sun's shining - everyone's ... [more ]
Akihabara 5.0 stars
Quarter - #7 of 23
The first time I heard of Akihabara I thought it was pronounced Akki-harbour and was expecting to find streets nestling around a water front. Of course this isn’t the case! Akihabara is the computer and technology district of Tokyo and is famous ... [more ]
Sake Plaza 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #8 of 23
We attempted to use the map in Shinbashi Station to locate the Sake Plaza. Turns out we did a good job of finding it on the map, but once outside the station we took a wrong turn. An hour, two shopkeepers, and one policeman later, we found it! ... [more ]
Tokyo Waterfront 5.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #9 of 23
I also went to the Tsukiji Fish market – saw the auctions for tuna and all. Tokyo though has more to offer in regards of other connections to the sea – namely the sea-lands conquered and built with the help of garbage residual ashes. If you ... [more ]
Hanabi Matsuri 5.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #10 of 23
One of the best summer traditions in Japan is the "Hanabi Matsuri" or "Firework Festivals". They take part all over the city throughout July and August, but generally next to the river. Forget any fireworks you've seen in Europe - these are ... [more ]
Mega Web Theme Park 5.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #11 of 23
If you love cars, then Toyota's Mega Web car theme park in Tokyo is a must. OK, so the focus is very much on Toyota products, but the company has such a rich history anyway that you can gawk at cars of all ages for hours. There are also many ... [more ]
Shimokitazawa 4.0 stars
Shopping - #12 of 23
Tokyo has a lot of trendy districts, but one of the coolest is Shimokitazawa, just a few train stops to the West of Shijuku and Shibuya. It's a huge area with almost nothing but second hand clothes shops, some selling stuff for as little as 100 ... [more ]
Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building 4.0 stars
Skyscraper - #13 of 23
There are a lot of tall buildings with impressive views to choose from in Tokyo, but the Metropolitan Government Building is definitely among the best. Situated right in the middle of Shinjuku, the most quintessentially neon and skyscraper filled ... [more ]
Mado Lounge 4.0 stars
Tower - #14 of 23
Specked up high on the 52nd floor of the Mori Tower building in the famous Roppongi Hills is the place to be; Mado Lounge. A place to chill out with friends, drink and enjoy spectacular views of Tokyo. The lift to the top is about 1,500 yen, yes ... [more ]
T?g? Shrine 4.0 stars
Religious Site - #15 of 23
Here is where people come to pay their respects to the man who made Edo (present day Tokyo) the seat of his government and thus elevated this small village to the most important city in the country. Toshogu Shrine was erected in 1651 and is ... [more ]
Palette Town 4.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #16 of 23
Palette Town, where the Giant Wheel is located, is one of Tokyo’s liveliest spots. The area looks like a giant mall but is full of entertainment options, from traditional rides such as Go-Karts to virtual reality, giant video games and ... [more ]
Tokyo National Museum 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #17 of 23
This musem is dedicated to the history of Japan, much as I expected. I paid extra to see 'Treasures of a great zen Temple - The Nanzenji'. This was a good collection, although sadly I knew little of Japanese history so although I enjoyed it, it ... [more ]
John Lennon Museum 3.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #18 of 23
When I first spotted that Tokyo had a John Lennon museum, I have to confess that I was slightly puzzled …until the name Yoko Ono popped into my head. Opened on 9th October 2000 (which would have been Lennon’s 60th birthday), this museum ... [more ]
Hama Rikyu Garden 3.0 stars
Botanical Garden - #19 of 23
An oasis of calm situated in the bay area of Tokyo. Surrounded on three sides by water, its origins stretch back 300 years, when it served as a retreat and duckhunting grounds for the Tokugawa Shoguns but the garden in its present form dates from ... [more ]
Toyota Auto Salon Amlux 3.0 stars
Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #20 of 23
I’m not a petrol-head but I do have a passing interest in cars and I did have fun here. It was Japan's largest automobile showroom when it opened some 20 odd years ago and has now evolved into four floors of exhibition space containing more than ... [more ]
