Top Things To See In Tokyo, Japan

Heading to Tokyo? This guide shows you the top things to see in Tokyo.

Tokyo is probably one of the most visited cities in Asia and what fascinates me about Tokyo is that it’s a mixture between the old and new. This applies to food, culture, tradition, architecture, and fashion. It’s also seen as the capital of quirky things that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. I personally love the food and shopping in Tokyo, and I’m equally in love with the orderliness and cleanliness of the city. This is probably why I have been there 4 times already!

If this is your first time in Tokyo, make sure to check out my guide on how to plan a trip to Tokyo.
