Tokyo HolidaysReference WW40012
The modern city of Tokyo is the capital of Japan. The city where people dress to impress and experiment with the latest technologies, where excellent restaurants serve up delicious food of all varieties and the trendiest nightclubs keep things interesting.
Tokyo might be busy, but this only ensures that everything there runs smoothly. From public transport to social etiquette to the numerous vending machines dotted throughout the city, everything seems to run seamlessly in this city.
Tokyo has refined shopping into an urban art form and essential cultural experience. The result is quite possibly the most futuristic shopping environment in the world, in which you can purchase everything from underwear to watermelons from vending machines while never interacting with a human. Tokyo is also at the cutting edge of fashion and design, as a wide-eyed stroll through the Ginza and Shibuya districts will confirm.
Tokyo is also famous for its electronics stores, the biggest concentration of which you can find in Akihabara, Tokyo's 'Electric Town'. Sightseeing in Tokyo can bring about sensory overload if you're not careful. Animated billboards, the buzz of a densely packed and highly energetic population, and glittering, gleaming architecture all compete for your attention. One thing is sure though, you'll never be bored.
