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.

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.

Tokyo is a amazing city and the 9h jetlag is worth suffering from just to know the city. You can find virtually anything to math your tastes. Day and night the city is full of energy and the high views of Tokyo are breath taking. If you are to go there please stay at least 5 days!!!! Getting lost in Tokyo is also a great feeling :)

Smith Delfonics Design is the name of the store.
A novelty-esque stationary shop for those who want their office to look like Don Draper's. The over-priced store sells super stylish retro filing cabinets, suit-patterned iPad covers and tie-patterned pencil cases, instagram polaroid cameras and if you have 400 bucks to spare, an electric typewriter.
European flavored pens, notebooks and appointment books are reasonably to ridiculously priced. Branches are all over Tokyo but the Shibuya branch is one of the bigger ones that's worth a look, if only to feel like you're on a Mad Men set.

Tokyo is one of the most amazing cities in the world. Or more correctly, one of the most amazing sprawls since it's really a collection of cities that grew into each other. Speaking no english, I didn't have a problem getting around or dealing with people, all of whom were friendly. It's also amazingly clean. Under that though, people are tense and rigid.

The vastness of Japan is just simply amazing and there is always something unique that you will run into. Whether it be curry "pan", vending machines for everything, or outdoor ramen spots, there's always something new to try. Definitely a city you must see, must dine, and must explore.
