Tokyo is a city of dizzying contrasts: ancient heritage sites intermingle with a futuristic skyline and swarming crowds give way to peaceful backstreets. From the upper level of Shibuya Station, enjoy an aerial view of the frenetic cityâ€™s throbbing heart â€“ its giddying five-way intersection, which appeared in Lost in Translation â€“ before exploring Ueno Parkâ€™s tranquil gardens and incense-scented shrines. Unwind further in a traditional bathhouse, where soothing baths are fed by underground natural springs.
Visit Tokyo Skytree, the worldâ€™s tallest free-standing broadcast tower, ascending over 2,000ft for incredible views. Peruse contemporary exhibitions at fashion designer Issey Miyakeâ€™s 21_21 Design Sight museum before uncovering the cityâ€™s fascinating past at Sensoji, Tokyoâ€™s oldest Buddhist temple, and Tokyo National Museum with its samurai swords and ancient Buddhas.
From the fashionable to the futuristic, shopping in Tokyo is a real adventure. Youâ€™ll find chic boutiques and upmarket department stores in affluent shopping district Ginza, while techno-geeks can peruse gadgets galore in Akihabaraâ€™s electronic stores. Bohemian Naka-Meguro is great for vintage finds and Kagurazakaâ€™s craft shops are awash with traditional wooden sandals and handmade accessories. For an authentic market experience, stroll around Tsukijiâ€™s backstreet fishmonger stalls and hole-in-the-wall sushi bars.
A haven for foodies, Tokyo is home to the worldâ€™s highest volume of Michelin restaurants in one city. From super-sleek sushi bars to authentic Japanese-style pubs, the metropolis is packed with outstanding eateries serving an array of local cuisine. For a truly unforgettable culinary sensation, book months in advance at Kanda, a three-Michelin-starred enclave with just eight seats. Meat-lovers should head to New York Grill for melt-in-the-mouth beef cuts from Hokkaido Ribeye to Kobe; while sushi fans must try Ginza Kyubey, where fish is freshly-sliced in front of diners.
Tokyoâ€™s famous skyline is dotted with skyscraper hotels from the most prestigious names in luxury travel, all offering exceptional service and cutting-edge design. The glossy Mandarin Oriental has several acclaimed restaurants, while the Aman offers a world-class spa spanning two floors.
