Edo Tokyo Tokyo

After Kyoto, Tokyo has its own special collection of attractions. For a start, there are all those towns that collectively go to make up one of the world's largest cities. Each of the towns have their own unique flavour, so you can choose whatever suits your mood at the time.

For us, a good place to start in Tokyo is Nihonbashi, which historically has represented the centre of Tokyo, and for a long time hosted what was Tokyo's central fish market before its relocation to its present site in Tsukiji. The bridge in Nihonbashi was the place from which distances to other areas of Japan were measured. Nihonbashi and adjoing Ginza today hosts several large upscale department stores including Takashimaya, Matsuya, and Matsuzakaya, and the Apple Computer Store. A small boutique-style shop in Nihonbashi is the Yamamotoyama tea house and nori shop.

After Nihonbashi, your next stop would be Asakusa, the modern city built on the area that used to be known as Yoshiwara, which was the notorious pleasure district.

For upscale boutique shopping, fine dining, and high-class night clubs, you then make your way to the Ginza.

Visit Tsukiji

High on the list of sightseeing attractions (and especially if you like fish as much as we do) is Tokyo's central fish market Tsukiji, where every morning from around 6:00am to around noon, the auction houses sell two-thousand-five-hundred metric tonnes of fish.
