25 Things To Do in Tokyo, Japan (Watch This Before You Go)

  • Опубликовано: 30 мар 2014
  • Get info about things to do, where to stay, and the best food to eat on your visit to Tokyo, Japan. Here's the guide: migrationology.com/tokyo-travel-guide-for-food-lovers/
    Tokyo (東京), Japan, is one of the world's greatest cities, and there's so much to do and see when you visit. From temples and shrines, to gardens and museums, you'll never run out of attractions. Out of all the things you could do, I've chosen a top 25 list for this awesome city (and just so you know food is my first choice in Tokyo)!
    1. Ameya-Yokochō (アメヤ横丁) - A giant open air market that offers clothes, cosmetics, food, and restaurants and bars.
    2. Meiji Shrine (明治神宮) - This Shinto shrine, surrounded by beautiful forest, is extremely significant.
    3. Ryogoku Kokugikan (両国国技館) - Even if it's not fight season, you can go to the free sumo museum and eat sumo chankonabe.
    4. Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden (新宿御苑) - The garden is a beautiful attraction in Tokyo, with French gardens, Japanese gardens, and a green house.
    5. Ginza (銀座) / Yurakucho (有楽町) - Ginza is a great area of town for upscale shopping and dining, while Yurakucho is famous for Izakaya bars and restaurants under the railroad track.
    6. Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (東京都庁舎) - There are a lot of things to do in Tokyo where you have to pay, but here, you can go to the 45th floor for free.
    7. Tsukiji Market (築地市場) - One of the most famous attractions in all of Tokyo is the Tsukiji Market (築地市場), the biggest seafood market in the world.
    8. Shibuya (渋谷区) - With the busiest intersection in the world, Shibuya (渋谷区) is also home to shopping and restaurant.
    9. Sumida River (隅田川) - At Tokyo's Sumida River, you can either just walk around the park and enjoy the riverside views, or you can take the Tokyo Cruise in a boat.
    10. Tokyo Imperial Palace (皇居) - This is the home of the emperor of Japan. To enter the grounds, you have to make a tour booking on the official website
    11. Ueno Park (上野公園), Tokyo National Museum (東京国立博物館) - Ueno Park is a huge public park in Tokyo with shrines, gardens and a number of museums.
    12. Tokyo Skytree (東京スカイツリー) - They call it Tokyo's biggest attractions. It's a huge communications tower with various viewing decks and galleries.
    13. Harajuku (原宿), Takeshita Street (竹下通り) - Famous for its street market and cosplay that takes place, this is a place in the city to see and be seen.
    14. Senso-ji (金龍山浅草寺) - Visiting this temple is one of the top things to do in Tokyo, frequented by both tourists and religious pilgrims. It's the oldest temple in Tokyo.
    15. Edo-Tokyo Museum (江戸東京博物館) - It looks a little like a UFO, but it's one of Tokyo's main museums, that aims to preserve the history of the city.
    16. Fine Dining - Let's just face it, Tokyo is one of the best cities in the world for high class dining - atmosphere, presentation, food, it's all just stunning!
    17. Akihabara Electric Town (秋葉原電気街) - If you love electronics and gaming, you're going to love the area of Akihabara. You'll also find those infamous maid cafes here.
    18. Tokyo Stock Exchange (東京証券取引所) - Another free attraction in Tokyo is to be a guest at the stock exchange where you can see the Japanese Nikkei being traded.
    19. Roppongi (六本木) - Home to the Mori Art Museum and a hotspot for nightlife in the city, Roppongi is an exciting area of town.
    20. Odaiba (お台場) - This area of Tokyo is full of things to do like Legoland, and Palette Town, an indoor amusement park. It's also known as Tokyo's entertainment island.
    21. Yoyogi Park (代々木公園) - Located next to Meiji Shrine, and just a short distance from Harajuku and Shinjuku, this park is popular for exercise and dance.
    22. Nezu (根津), Yanaka (谷中 (台東区) - Tokyo is a truly modern city, but there are a couple places like Nezu and Yanaka that have held strong to their traditional and cultural roots.
    23. Onsen (温泉) - You've got to strip down naked before you can enter a Japanese public bath.
    24. Mount Takao (高尾山) - Just 50 km from central Tokyo, this mountain is popular for climbing and is a sacred religious mountains. Makes a good day trip from Tokyo.
    25. Food - Finally, food is the reason I visited Japan, and I think eating is by all means one of the best things to do in Tokyo. Food is everywhere, and not only does it taste amazing, but the care that goes into Japanese cuisine is incredible.
    Thank you very much for watching this video that includes some of the best things to do in Tokyo. I hope it will give you inspiration to visit and eat through this amazing city.

    Ignore the idiots who have nothing better to do than come and comment negatively on your videos, there is nothing wrong with a guy showing appreciation and love for food, isn't that what your videos are about ? ? People will always moan about something. You seem like a genuine man who loves his family. You happy and you get to travel to many places in the world trying their foods and seeing the culture, not many of us get to do this, so I'm thankful you share your experience with us all. Please enjoy yourselves and keep the videos coming. 🤗😁

    Japan is one of the safest countries in the world. Gun related death is unheard of, let alone gun massacres! Look how safe we live in this beautiful country. Let's maintain this safety & security. DON'T EVER let Western Right-Wing "GUN RIGHTS" propaganda enter your country! Never. In USA gun massacre occurs every WEEK! That is disgusting!
    What use is it to have "freedom to own guns" if people die in huge number? That's not freedom, that's a disease!
    And YES mental health also contributes to the problem. But do you know what causes Americans to be insane?? It's the ideology of Evangelical Christianity that causes Americans to be violent and stressful and then commit massacres.

    • redfish337
      redfish337 Месяц назад +1

      I don't think it's actually an onsen. More of a sento. If it actually uses spring water then it may be able to get away with saying onsen, but it frankly looks more utilitarian... for people in the area who need a bath, rather than the typical onsen which are set up with slow relaxation more in mind.
      In any case, I looked it up and it's east of Ueno, very close to Inaricho Station (it's walkable from JR Ueno Station if you take Asakusa Exit of JR Ueno Station). If you're coming from Asakusa or going through Akihabara on Ginza Line you can just get off at Inaricho though.

      That's still wrong though. Even with the scene at Takeshita pretty close to dead, Harajuku wasn't about cosplay. It was fashion. It's like looking at goths or punks and saying they're cosplaying... no, that's just what people in that scene dress like when they have a choice.

    I have a question about restaurants in Japan cuz I never went there yet.
    do we need to know what we shouldn't do to not piss off the restaurant?
    lol dont get me wrong but its a new place I heard from people that in japan you need to eat quick pay and leave quick cuz there is a line of ppl waiting to be seated.
    I want to know so I dont put my self in a weird situation XD

    • redfish337
      redfish337 2 месяца назад

      You can take your time eating. But if there's a line to sit down you shouldn't keep chatting there after finishing.
      There may be some exceptions, but there are exceptions everywhere in the world. =P

      He was there in late February. You can expect it to generally be chilly, particularly at night. But spring can already be sort of forcing its way in early, so you can occasionally get some pretty comfortable days. Don't count on it though.

    I'm in love with Tokyo, Japan! And watching this video makes me love it even more! I am a picky eater, though, and won't eat most things... I don't like fish very much to be honest... But, looking at images and videos of Japanese food and people's reactions to tasting them just makes me so hungry and I want to eat Japanese food so bad! 😢 Looking at all the Japanese foods in this video just makes me jealous that I can't go to Japan, yet... 😭😭😭 (I don't have enough money 😭😭😭😭)

    Hello Mark,
    Wow you went to Mt. Takao but did not go to Ukai Toriyama to Eat? Ukai Toriyama is like no other Eating Experience in the World! It is a Full Cultural Experience , the Old Japan.
    The food can be called Simple But done with the utmost care and each bite awakens all of your taste senses. One disk to enjoy is the River Fish Ai, skewered with a bamboo stick, packed with salt and roasted over glowing Charcoal in a white sand pit in your room, you eat in private rooms.
    The restaurant runs up the side of Takao-san, well kept paths and many old farm manors moved there from all over Japan, a natural stream running among them. The next time you go to Japan put Ukai Toriyama at the head of your list. The price is high but nothing like the absolutely Crazy 300 to 500 dishes on the Ginza. I lived in Japan for 16 years and I can say that you eat insane priced meals in Tokyo or go to the right place just outside of Tokyo and pay much much less. A Small Apartment in Tokyo $10,000 compared to $600 I paid for for a two bedroom two Story house with a yard in Haijima just outside of Tokyo.
    Here is a Link for Ukai Toriyama:
    I am sure enough that if you go to Ukai Toriyama and don't agree that it is the most Unique Place you have ever eaten I will pay for your meal.
