Tokyo houses almost forty million people in its metropolitan city. The fees of the city I got while touring it was like a Sci-fi movie. The city is always awake, bustling with thousands of people continuously be it night or day. It is filled with neon lighted skyscrapers which are an incredible sight to take in at night this city has every bit of something, which every individual can enjoy. Here are some things that I enjoyed.
Tokyo is majorly known for its modern and sleek architectures. There is a futuristic theme to its buildings and really high tech skyscrapers. With all this modern theme, Yanaka is the city that treasures the historic side of Japan. Yanaka is situated in the exact middle of Tokyo and I must say the area is an old gem. The history is depicted through its shrines and local shops, where you can buy ancient souvenirs. I took the Yanaka’s old tomb walking tour, it is splendid, one must definitely try this and it is the most popular there. The best way to explore the local cobbled streets is by taking a walking tour through the city.
Another best thing Tokyo is famous for is its food. The quirky and delicious food that this city has to offer can be found nowhere else. Hiroo is the kind of stop which is very trendy and funky, but peaceful too as it does not hold too much of a crowd. It’s kind of like a hidden gem about Tokyo. If you’re willing to explore the latest food culture of Tokyo, you will find a number of cafes and restaurants offering healthy and tasty menu. It is street food is by far the best I have ever had.
Sumo Practice Viewing
Sumo fighting is the most popular sports in Japan. Ryogoku area holds numerous amounts of Sumo training houses where the sumo wrestlers reside and take Om their practice. Some of these houses are open for its local public and the touring visitors to give them a look about their lifestyle. I went for one such viewing; it really is one of a kind experience.
