Tokyo is one of the most populous cities in the world. It is also one of Japan’s 47 prefectures, consisting of 23 central city wards and multiple cities, towns and villages west of the city center. About 12 million people live in the capital of Japan. Tokyo is also the biggest financial center of the world, the giant megapolis with rich political and cultural life, Tokyo strikes the guests with its unusual modern architecture.
Tokyo has much to offer tourists – from huge modern skyscapers to ancient temples. Tokyo offers a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining to its visitors. Tokyo is a city with unique history and carefully preserved traditions.
The city’s history can be appreciated in districts such as Asakusa, and in many excellent museums, historic temples and gardens. Contrary to common perception, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green spaces in the city center and within relatively short train rides at its outskirts.
Progressive technologies and oriental customs perfectly supplement each other. The capital of Japan consists of many districts, which are very different from each other. That is why sometimes Tokyo is called “a city of contrasts”.
