The kaleidoscope of colors and the frantic rhythm of Tokyo life stuns travelers who first came here. However, it is a city of contrasts; behind proud skyscrapers, traditional Japan with its gardens immersed in spring cherry blossom, tea ceremonies, and philosophy of contemplation are hidden.
Go on an excursion of Tokyo in English with an experienced guide to unravel the secret of the capital of the Land of the Rising Sun. If you decide to explore the city on your own, a short list of its sights will help you:
- The Imperial Palace surrounded by a fragrant park (1001guide experts advise you to visit this place in April when cherry blossoms are in bloom for stunning photos);
- Tokyo TV Tower - a copy of the Eiffel's twin, the second tallest building in Japan (332.6 m);
- Shinjuku Gyoen National Park combining three types of landscape - Japanese, English, and French (ideal place not only for an educational excursion but also for a cozy picnic);
- Meiji Shrine - a complex dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife where belongings of the august couple are stored;
- Akihabara - a neighborhood with electronics and goods for anime and manga fans.
Such is the Japanese capital whimsically combining tradition and modernity. This can be seen even after a short guided sightseeing excursion; its worthy end will be lunch in one of the Tokyo cafes.
