12 Must-Do Experiences in Tokyo
From the restaurants and markets to the parks and museums, Tokyo has hundreds of things you must do. But what really sets Tokyo apart is the crazy cross between past and future and how this dichotomy gets expressed everywhere. Where else can you experience eating at a traditional 3-star Michelin sushi restaurant with Buddhist temples, ultra-modern architecture and statues of giant robots all within a stone’s throw of each other? In Tokyo, always expect to experience the unexpected.

View of Tokyo at dusk as seen from the 54th floor observation deck of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Nishi-shinjuku. Admission to the observatory is free and well worth it for a fantastic, sweeping view of the Tokyo skyline.
