How do you begin to explain a city that is on one hand one of the world’s most futuristic, yet at the same time, ageless traditions and centuries-old temples form part of daily life?
 
Pulsing with the to and fro of its 13 million residents, The Big Mikan (an orange-like fruit and Tokyo’s answer to New York’s The Big Apple) is extremely crowded, yet astonishingly orderly. 
 
That's the beauty of this city, that, and some of the top restaurants in the world, its cutting-edge fashion and innovative design, its incredible high-speed trains – and its “only in Japan” quirkiness – from robot restaurants to Hello Kitty.
 
Every district has its own distinctive charm and atmosphere. The temple town of Asakusa is worlds apart from the curious fashions of Harajuku or the skyscrapers of Shinjuku. It is rich in museums and galleries and the pop-art capital of the world. And with the 2020 Olympics locked up, the city is sure to become even cooler.
 
No matter how many times you visit, Tokyo is a place that constantly amazes. It is the embodiment of the Japanese sentiment “ichi-go ichi-e", no two moments are ever the same – each is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be cherished.
