Japan - Tokyo (Chapter)
This is the Tokyo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.
Tokyo is a city forever reaching into the future, resulting in sci-fi streetscapes of crackling neon and soaring towers. It is constantly reinventing itself - most recently as a culinary and pop-culture mecca (and a must-visit for anyone interested in either). Yet it is also a city steeped in history, and you can find traces of the shogun’s capital on the kabuki stage or under the cherry blossoms in Ueno Park.
- losing yourself in the vestiges of the old city in Yanaka
- soaking up the atmosphere at Asakusa’s centuries-old temple, Sensō-ji
- getting swept up in the crowds and neon lights of Shibuya
- restaurants & accommodation
