Exploring Tokyo’s Treasures

There’s a reason Tokyo was named “World’s Most Satisfying Tourist City” in a TripAdvisor poll back in 2013. Japan has so many incredible aspects to its culture and Tokyo is right at the center of it all. For one, Japanese gastronomy is legendary. Foodies will go crazy in Tokyo – and you can experience so much on a budget. Authentic and inexpensive street food and noodle shops are a great way to start. Or if you’re craving a fine dining experience, Tokyo also boasts more Michelin stars than any other city in the world.

There are plenty of incredible attractions in Tokyo that are worth a visit. Some noteworthy religious sites include the Meiji Shrine and the Sensoji Temple. See how Japanese royalty live at the Imperial Palace. In terms of museums, you can’t leave Tokyo without having visited the Tokyo National Museum and the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.

Shopping is another fun way to enjoy Tokyo. Leave a little money in your budget for a shopping spree. From fashion to technology, Tokyo is a great place to find some incredible products. Fashionistas can check out fabulous Tokyo stores like Tomorrowland, Beams and United Arrows. You also can just window shop or check out interesting markets, like the Tsukiji fish market, the biggest fish market in the world and a leading Tokyo attraction.

Another attraction is baseball, as the city is home to two different stadiums. Coffee drinkers will enjoy the wide variety of unique cafés in the city, like a manga-kissa, or “comics café.” If you’re an animal-lover, hang out at one of the city’s cat or owl cafés, where you can sip your latte with the company of these animals. Another quirky attraction is the Kanda River bats (don’t worry they don’t bite). You could also go take a peek at Tokyo’s large bronze Godzilla. You’ll never run out of fun things to do in Tokyo.
