Tokyo is a huge, modern, busy, fast-paced, but also a very orderly and clean city. You can walk the busy streets and quiet parks, see some very interesting modern architecture and very important historical sites, view the city from one of the observation towers, take a boat ride with great city views, visit popular shopping streets, gawk at some amazing electronics stores, try some unusual street food, have a nice dinner in one of the numerous restaurants, and walk back to your hotel or the station under the brightest neon lights one can imagine.

With some 35 million people (not a typo!), the massive urban agglomeration of Tokyo is the world's single largest city. Hypermodern, sleek, sophisticated, and polished, it's the pre-eminent symbol of modern Japan, but the beauty of the city lies in its ability to blend the ultra-new and the traditional, with gorgeous wooden temples and shrines mixed right into the urban sprawl. It's also one of the very best places in the world to eat: amazing sashimi and juicy yakitori skewers with salarymen swilling Asahi draft. It's also a giant vacuum, capable of sucking money from your pockets with startling speed: be advised.

Lived here for total of half a year. Must enjoy ridiculous Japanese culture or at least be intrigued by things that aren't Western.
Overpriced but no other place on earth like it. Shallow people, but that may just have been as I wasn't fluent and cliques naturally form around different language levels.
Travel wise: YES! Bring: dictionary / imagination for charades.

An amazing city to see! Growing up outside of New York City Tokyo is the only place in the world I've ever been with a similar feel to NYC. There are so many unique things this city has to offer I can't even begin to list them all here.

My favorite urban area to explore. There is nothing else like it. Can easily combine train, subway and walking for a dynamic adventure through modern and traditional Tokyo.

There is nothing like Tokyo. Modern, dense, chaotic but somehow orderly. It takes a bit of time to sort it all out but all-in-all fairly easy to navigate and explore. Don't be nervous. Just get out and see it.

Tokyo is amazing. It is completely over saturated with everything you have every dreamt of, and some. It believe it is the greatest city in the world.

of all the neighbourhoods in Tokyo, this is one not to miss. Home to Shibuya Crossing - the Times Square of Tokyo and enough cool shops and places to explore to walk the legs off even the most hearty traveller.

Forget about the brand-name fashion palaces of Ginza, Tokyo's best-known shopping district. Shibuya is where it's at if you want to snap up contemporary Japanese styles without spending your entire bankroll. Just watch out crossing that famous street -- Shibuya Crossing -- which is like a sea of humanity in the storm of a century. (If you're looking for cutting-edge J-Pop fashion, head to Harajuku instead, nearby arty Omotesando.)

Tokyo has many surrounding and fantastic cultural. There are many things must do when you come here. I love to go to Asakusa, Harajuku, Shibuya and eating out Japanese foods all the time. Shopping a good Asian products of women skincare & cosmetic and also interesting souvenirs.
