Tokyo, Japan is one of the most exciting and unique cities to visit in Asia. Known for sky rises, cherry blossom trees, and delicious seafood, Tokyo has much to offer for any kind of traveler. Vita Travel has compiled a list of some of the most exciting things Tokyo has to offer!
Anybody who visits Japan must experience the insane energy at Tsujiki Market. This fish market is famous for selling over 2000 tons of seafood on a daily basis. The best time to visit the market is around 5am when most of the auctioning occurs, but those who like their beauty sleep can stop by later in the morning to see a less intense market scene. After visiting Tsujiki Market make sure to have some sushi, which can be found just about anywhere in Tokyo but is especially good when served as street food.
To learn more about Japanese culture travelers can visit Tokyo National Museum. At the Tokyo National Museum there are large art collections including Buddhist sculptures, kimonos, and samurai swords. Edo-Tokyo Museum, on the other hand, gives a comprehensive view of Tokyo’s history. Exhibits show how Tokyo grew into the world famous city it is today.
One can’t leave Tokyo without visiting one of the many beautiful parks and shrines. Some great options include Yoyogi Park and Shinkjuku Gyoen National Garden. While exploring Japan’s outdoors, travelers should also make a stop at Mejio Shrine which is Tokyo’s most famous place of worship.
