Visiting Tokyo: the Metropolitan City of Modern Japan

Tokyo is one of the largest cities in the world and certainly the most metropolitan city of Japan. Tokyo has many different attractions to offer and it is sure to satisfy any tourist needs and requirements as it is so versatile. When you arrive at Narita Airport, you will be able to rent a car that will enable you to just go anywhere you want. Even if it is very easy to take trains, metros and buses in the capital of Japan, it is much easier and convenient for you to simply rent a car at the airport and drive in the complete comfort of your car. Moreover, by renting a car you will have the opportunity of going wherever you want, whenever you want, without having to wait on a bus or dealing with the extremely busy Japanese subway.


Tokyo has so many different attractions to offer to tourists. If you wish to visit the most famous and wonderful temples that Japan hosts, then you can take long and relaxing walks in the beautiful gardens and surrounds of Buddhist temples. The atmosphere will simply soak you in a state of meditation and surrealism that you will never want to get rid of. The temples are very ancient as well and if you want, you can also participate in the religious ceremonies that take place on a daily basis.

If, on the other hand, you are more into the metropolitan side of Japan, then Tokyo offers you a wide variety of many different activities that you will be able to fully enjoy. For example, if you are into clubbing and having a good time you can go to the many different discos and club this city has to offer. Moreover, if you enjoy technology and video games, you cannot miss the fantastic skyscrapers full of technological items and the latest innovations in mobile phones, cameras, computers and much more.

There is also a part of Tokyo, called Harajuku, which is dedicated to people who are really into Japanese anime and cartoons. There you will be able to find comic books, anime magazines, and even clothes that you can wear around Harajuku so that you will look like the idols of your favorite anime and cartoons.

More Attractions and Restaurants

If you go to Tokyo, you have to go to a real Japanese restaurant that is very different from what they look like in the Western world. In fact, you will have to sit on the floor, without using any silverware, just chopsticks and each table is kept in complete privacy by artfully hand-painted room separators that remind of an ancient Japan, filled with its legends, myths and traditions of samurai and geisha.

Tokyo is also the perfect place for you to visit with your children as there is Disneyland just outside the town and it is easily reachable by car.

Hello Beng Gee, how you doin'? You went to Tokyo or been there recently?
Yes, Tokyo is one fantastic city. I was there few times years ago, but on business.
But from what you mentioned, my friends who were there it is one heck of a city.

One thing that strikes me, hardly any crime, and people are very polite and friendly, especially the countryside.
I have always loved anything Japanese, except Japanese food, ha ha.
You have a nice day, ingat ka palagi.

Have a good week!

Hi Lee! Always glad to see you drop by!
No, haven't been too Tokyo yet, but wishing. This article is only a guest post.

What Lee? You don't like Japanese food? You sure are missing half of your life. Lol! Japanese food makes me salivate. So delish!

Be well. Stay young and energetic as you always are, Lee! God bless!

Hi Huling!
Ang Holy Week dito sa MM ay parang wala lang. Di tulad sa probins na feel talaga ang pagka-holy ng week. Like ko nga mag-punta sa San Fer Pamp. eh to witness yung mga nagpapa-pako sa krus! Me ganun pa rin pala up to now!

Hahaha.. ganda ng presyo eh, 'no?! Balak ko na nga ibenta eh. Sinong nilalang kaya ang bibili? Aguy!

Super hot summer na talaga! Beach na beach ng tunay!!

Buti pa kyo, easy lang ma-reach ang world class Florida Beaches! Go na! Sama nyo ako!

Enjoy your week and regards to the two loves of your life!
