Tokyo - One of the world’s most exciting cities
Location: On Japan’s main island of Honshu
The metropolitan area can be found in the region of Kanto, covering an area which extends from Honshu Island to Isu and Ogasawara Islands. The area is served by one of the world’s most extensive transport networks, which includes trains, metros, buses, monorails, and trams. Tokyo’s main international airport is Narita; however, there are several other airports governed by the city in its surrounding areas.
Business: The largest metropolitan economy in the world
The metropolis is an epicentre for business and finance. Many of the world’s largest corporations, which include investment banks, insurance companies, manufacturing corporations, and others, call Tokyo their home. The Tokyo Stock Exchange is the world’s third largest stock exchange, and along with New York City and London, it is considered one of the three “command centres” of world economy.
Culture: A city filled with a rich history and heritage
There are more than enough cultural attractions to be seen during your stay. The Imperial Palace is home to the Japanese Imperial Family and is a must-see. Tokyo also hosts uncountable events throughout the year, and features numerous museums that cover any imaginable field. Be sure to visit the Tokyo National Museum and the National Museum of Modern Art, and catch a live sumo-wrestling match at Ryogoku Kokugikan arena!
Activities: Shopping, sightseeing, and sporting events!
There is so much to do here. Spend an afternoon in Yoyogi Park, where people gather to relax and socialise. The districts of Shibuya and Harajuku are known as great shopping districts and are lively places to walk around. The skyline should also be experienced from afar, and no trip to Tokyo is complete without taking a trip to the top of the Tokyo Tower or the Tokyo Skytree.
