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.

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.

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.)

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.

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.

This sprawling city is one of the most populous in the world, with perhaps 18 million people in its environs. It is also spread out across many square miles, with different districts as part of it is urban mosaic.
The main loop train line that connects many of the districts is the Yamanote line. From this line, you can loop aroud to the various sections of Tokyo, like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ueno, Meguro, Akihabara, Asakusa, Central Tokyo, Kanegawa, etc.
Traffic is equaly congested, and you probably have seen ths picture of the paid train platform ushers who's job it is to push more people into a train.
Tokyo is a vibrant city, one of the most vibrant in the world, and hopfully you will visit it soon and see for yourself its unique personality.

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.

If the idea of fantastic service, no tips, delicious food and an incredibly interesting people and culture is your thing, then Tokyo is the place. Likewise, it is definitely one of the "party till the morning" destinations with restaurants, bars, clubs, and music for all tastes. If it exists on the planet, you can probably find it in Tokyo. On the other hand, if you don't like crowds or traffic, think again.
