5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Tokyo, Japan

Japan’s capital, Tokyo, is a sight to behold, a perfect mix of the old and the new, the sophisticated traditional Japan blended perfectly with the high-technology and ultramodern new world. There is just more to love in this busy city and here are just 5 of the reasons why you should visit Tokyo.

SHIBUYA CROSSING

Outside Shibuya Station is the most iconic and, at the same time, the busiest pedestrian crossing in Japan. The best time to visit (and take lots of photos) would be at night when the neon lights are lit, photos here are quite dramatic at night. Take a photo from way up some good viewing points or just feel the hustle bustle and join the orderly chaos of the pedestrians crossing.

ROBOT RESTAURANT

Japan has a lot of quirky and, not to mention, futuristic things and places, and probably the most famous one would be the Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku. Dine here and be entertained with the most unique and out-of-this-world experience. Mirrors and neon lights everywhere will add up the extremely bizarre entertainment they showcase with robots, dragons, ninjas, blue-haired dancers and a whole lot of quirky stuff.

TOKYO DISNEYSEA

Since you’re already in Tokyo, why not visit the only DisneySea in the world, it’s not exactly in Tokyo but just bordering, locate at Chiba. This is, undoubtedly, the best place you can bring your kids to meet all the marine characters in seven featured ports.

SUMO WRESTLING

The national sport of Japan is, you guessed it, Sumo, and it’s very popular in this part of the country. But before you see an authentic Sumo wrestling match, why not see them up close while they do their morning practice. After seeing their rigorous training, you can check out the grand tournaments in Tokyo to get the feel of the real sport and the most famous one is the Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Stadium.

SENSOJI TEMPLE

Tokyo is not all about ultramodern places because, as much as they love the technology, they also value their culture and tradition. Pay a visit to the oldest temple in Tokyo, the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. This is the most prominent Buddhist Temple in the city that is why there are a lot of visitors here daily. The good news is, it is always open so you can visit during sunrise or at night. Don’t forget to draw an omikuji to know your fortune. If it is good luck then keep it with you but if not then leave it in the temple’s many iron rods and ask the spirits to take care of it for you.
