Japan, known as "The Land of the Rising Sun," is a fascinating combination of old-world in the midst of modern-day technology. Tokyo is Japan's capital where progressive skyscrapers and ancient shrines blend to create a giant metropolis with millions of residents. It is hard to imagine that this seat of the Japanese government and home to the Imperial Family was once a fishing village known as Edo.
A visit to Tokyo can begin with the picturesque Imperial Palace, a large park-like area made up of several buildings including, a museum, offices and the private residences of the Imperial Family - all amongst traditional Japanese gardens. Japanese gardens are composed of idealized landscapes, often in a highly-stylized, abstract manner stimulating aesthetic pleasure and contemplation. Koishikawa Korakuen and Shinjuku Gyoen are two of Tokyo's most beautiful gardens.
Tokyo's Menji Jingu Shrine tells of the city's Shinto heritage, respecting harmony with nature. On a clear day, the iconic snowcapped cone of Mount Fuji, one of Japan's "Holy Mountains," located 60 miles from Tokyo, can be seen in the distance.
As one the commanding centers of the world's economy, Tokyo is the country's financial center, ranked as one of the most expensive cities on the planet. Shopping enthusiasts will delight in the Japanese appreciation of fine design and plush boutiques. Foodies will enjoy a trip to Tsukiji Fish Market, the world's largest wholesale seafood market, in addition to tasting the variety of sushi and teppanyaki cuisine.
Japan is a land of captivating contrasts. Customize your trip to Tokyo with other exciting Japanese cities such as Kyoto and Osaka, as well as other nearby destinations such as Bangkok, Beijing, Seoul, and Hong Kong,
