Tokyo Points of Interest
Other than taking a city tour, we would also recommend the following places as great day tour opportunities for those wanting to get out on their own.
Shinjuku Well known as being one of the liveliest areas in Tokyo. The capital of entertainment, City Hall, site of the most expensive real estate in the world, it houses a massive array of shops, department stores, restaurants and bars. A great place to visit at nighttime, it comes alive with neon lights, the red light district & cosmopolitan places and Tokyoites out for a good time.
Ginza Houses some of the finest department stores in the world, ritzy shops and bars. Be careful, though, as it is also an expensive area to shop.
Tsukiji Fish Market For the early riser, this is an excellent place to stroll through and experience the largest fish market in the world.
Akihabara Electric town, as it is better known, has a huge selection of the latest electronic gadgetry and mind boggling electronic goods available. There are hundreds of stores and a good place, where just about everything is housed, is the Laox electrical department sore.
Kanda / Ochanomamizu This area is a ski and snowboarders dream place for shopping. It is one of the largest groupings of ski and snowboard shops located in any one place of anywhere it the world. There are hundreds of stores offering everything that one could desire at discounted prices. Well worth a visit while you are in Tokyo if you are looking to purchase new equipment.
Imperial Palace The home of the Emperor and the Imperial Family. Located not far from Tokyo Station. It presents the visitor with beautiful gardens and glimpses of the royal palace.
Harajuku Home of the Meijijingue Shrine, Tokyo's largest and most splendid shrine. If you happen to be here on a Weekend make sure that you make a foray into the park, as it has live music, street entertainment, dancing and many other unusual sights to see. Harajuku is also perhaps the fashion capital of Tokyo, with trendy bars, street-side coffee shops, street bars and the testing ground for bizarre new fashions. Harajuku is a must see place and I would recommend going there in the day time and just strolling about taking in the massive array of interesting shops and people alike. A great place to spend the day with shopping, some of the best souvenir shopping in all of Tokyo and interesting sights galore.
Shibuya The time square of Tokyo, this town in itself offers a mass of neon streets scenes, with an abundance of clothing, shops, bars and restaurants. This is a very lively place and is also very accessible, there is much street entertainment and exciting things are happening here.
Ebisu Home of the Tokyo Beer Gardens The Sapporo Beer Brewing company has spent over 250 billion yen in this area on making the most extravagant beer garden facility of anywhere in Japan.
Akasaka Is part of the old quarter of Tokyo and was a prominent area for dignitaries, government officials and the ruling elite back in the Meiji period. It housed the exclusive geisha houses and became a favorite enclave for many of Japans politicians. Today many hostesses have joined the geisha in this area and it is home to many of Tokyo’s top restaurants, which are all, found in small narrow olden day river stone paved streets. This is still an exclusive area, but it is a most interesting place to see and is also famous for its flea markets, furniture stores and olden day Japanese shops. It makes for an interesting couple of hours and one is likely to find some very good gifts or souvenirs in this area.
Roppongi Is a well-known place for nightlife with a plethora of bars restaurants and clubs. Roppongi is home to the Hard Rock Café and is a 24-hour town that goes all night long. There are hundreds of clubs and restaurants packed into this area and makes for a great place to go if one is looking to party. This area is best enjoyed in the evening.
