Your guide to Tokyo
All About Tokyo
This ancient, yet forward-looking hub is the most populated city on earth, and there’s truly something for everyone here. From elegant Japanese gardens for quiet strolls to meticulous subway systems and neon billboards with the latest tech novelty, Tokyo is brimming with life. And it’s not all about the future — Japan has deep respect for its heritage, and you’ll find a more traditional side to this ever-changing city in older districts such as Asakusa with its distinctly old-school stalls and snacks. History lovers will love soaking up hundreds of years of culture with sumo bouts, tea ceremonies, and historic theatre acts. In contrast, fans of the more modern side of Japanese life have a feast of manga, anime, and J-POP to discover. Feel the heartbeat of the capital at pulsating Shibuya Crossing, then grab a bite at one of its many kaitenzushi — conveyor belt sushi restaurants. After dark, it’s time to sample the Shinjuku district’s lively nightlife scene.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Tokyo
The Japanese capital is typically hot and humid in the summer months, with rain common both early and later on in the season, so waterproof clothing and shoes are definitely a good idea. Be aware that a small number of typhoons can occur over the autumn and be prepared for any potential power outages in apartments in Tokyo, although the city is well versed in rapid recovery. Japan’s magical powder-pink cherry blossom in spring is a big draw for locals and visitors alike — admiring foliage as it subtly changes throughout the year is a real event in Japanese culture. While late summer brings humidity hinting at the chance of downpours, it also coincides with the opening of scenic walking trails up and around Mount Fuji, another powerful symbol of the country and its connection to and reverence for the earth.
Top things to do in Tokyo
Seasoned stationery aficionados will already know about Japan’s traditional paper called washi. The Paper Museum, based in Tokyo’s Oji neighbourhood, was formerly home to the first modern paper mill in Japan. Today, it houses all things related to the history of paper in Japan and how it’s used on an everyday basis. Exhibitions showcase local craftspeople, the tearoom is stocked with calligraphy goods to purchase, and you can even take inspiration to try your own origami art.
Towering trees might seem far out of reach from Shibuya Crossing, but an hour away, Chikurin Park bamboo forest is a haven of tranquillity. Spot fireflies on long summer days, listen to the gentle flow of natural spring water, and take in the sense of peace created by thousands of slim bamboo trees.
Visit a kissaten
Japanese culture is renowned for a love of precision and time-honoured skill. Step into one of Tokyo’s traditional kissaten — a blend of teahouse and coffeehouse — to see this careful craft get the attention it deserves. There’s no rush here, so take a break from the city’s bustling energy outside and sip slowly.
