Home to an abundance of unfamiliar sights and sounds, Tokyo is the definition of futuristic, from its jagged skyline to its forward-thinking infrastructure. Join the swarm of local commuters in the tangle of metro lines, then soak up the atmosphere of the Meiji Shrine. Pick up a few ingredients from Tsukiji Fish Market before your culinary lesson from a local chef. Finish the night off with a brawling sumo match, or just stroll the streets until you find your own late-night teahouse. We are full of ideas to help you design your bespoke Tokyo holiday. Visits to cultural museums, neighborhood walking tours, or shopping in Tokyo’s hip malls—whatever you have in mind, our Tokyo travel agency can make your dream of Japan a reality.

What’s Special about Tokyo?

Tokyo is fast-paced and innovative, a city like no other in Asia and even the world. Always setting the latest trends, always ahead of the curve in style and taste, Tokyo and its exuberant people and culture will amaze and delight your imagination.


Like the rest of Japan, Tokyo has a population that’s largely ethnically homogeneous. Tokyoites are well known as polite, diligent, formal people. They are forward thinking and sometimes even bizarre, but above all they are imaginative.


Japan has four distinct seasons. The famous cherry blossom season is between March and April, when temperatures are pleasantly warm. This is a popular time to visit, but Tokyo is a year-round destination. Fall offers crisp weather, while winter is mild.


One huge draw for Tokyo is its nightlife. Take your pick of bars, lounges, and clubs. When you’ve had your fill of drinking and dancing, feast on delectable midnight snacks at any of the city’s late-late-night eateries.


The Japanese are highly developed in cuisine, literature, art, and architecture. In Tokyo, historic and commercial buildings blend in with Buddhist shrines and delicate gardens, demonstrating a balance that is evocative of a flourishing Japanese culture.


The locals of Tokyo speak Japanese. The younger generations and businessmen may speak some English, but for the most part, Japanese is the only language spoken.


It’s hard to imagine, but Tokyo was originally a small fishing village. Take a morning to learn this city’s rise and fall through history. Wander the Edo Castle or Imperial Palace and the Tokyo National Museum.
