Tokyo One of The Most Exciting Cities

Aug 18, 2007
Whether youre a tourist or are coming to Tokyo on business or for Aichi World Expo, we hope that youll find it to be one of the most exciting cities in the world.

The Imperial Palace is located with a peripheral road that is a little over 5 km in length. Even with detours, it would not be any longer than 7 km, enabling you to enjoy a very pleasant walk.

In the Palace Garden, you will see various historic spots associated with the Edo Castle, and deep greens make you forget you are in the midst of a city. The Palace is surrounded by a moat of rich water. You will be amazed at the spaciousness and cleanliness. Both are open to the public and admission is free

The Nijubashi Bridge, which is the symbol of the Imperial Palace.

The National Museum of Art is worth a look.

Tokyo Tower, skyscrapers and historic building will give you an interesting experience.

The night view is gorgeous from the observation room of the Metropolitan Government Building located in Shinjuku. It is open until 23:00 to view the city from a height of 202 m and admission is also free. In winter, closely observed, Mt Fuji can be often seen, giving a magnificent outlook. Another popular observation room, also free of charge, is that of the Bunkyo Civic Centre (105 m, 25th floor). It is kept dark in the room and has inclined windows to prohibit reflections that could impair the otherwise clear night views.

A stroll in the Nishiki ichiba Market is recommended. Although called market, it is more like a shopping mall, where you can buy anything from seafood sold for restaurants, to grocery items for ordinary consumers at reasonable prices. One can also dine here in many varying restaurants. Visitors can choose to snack on the street or dine in shops or restaurants at relatively low prices. Dining at restaurants or shops allows visitors to partake of attractive Japanese cuisine and enjoy the atmosphere. Many shops and restaurants give discounts right before they close each day.

Casual clothes are fine for sightseeing but for business, because so much rests on appearance in Japan, one can never be too smart.

Warm clothing is advisable for winter. Although the temperature doesnt fall much below zero, the wind chill factor can be quite high. Wet weather gear and boots wouldn't be in the way either occasionally it snows, but this usually turns to slush.
