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.

    • redfish337

      You can start by changing your dates. =P But if you really have to go in summer, you really should plan around summer. I mean, there are probably some tourist things you want to see and some variety is good, but if you have any sort of intention of going back sometime, you should keep things you can see any time of the year to a minimum (especially outdoor stuff) and catch it on a spring or autumn trip instead.
      Summer means really hot and humid days... and staying quite warm through the night on account of the humidity. Fireworks festivals, other festivals... summer only events (music festivals) etc... these are what keep Japanese people going through the summer. They're fun, but generally not worth the crazy heat and upcharged summer air tickets. But if you have to go in summer, then make the best of it.

      His blog said it was a 15 day/14 night trip. I think I rated this particular list at something closer to 10 though... even with a fairly moderate pace. Briefly hitting most of these (eg, 1-3 hours... not just going to check off a box so to say, but hardly thorough either), and you could do most of these in about 4 days... but the last few would probably drive it all the way up to 6.
      AND... as I always say... this is his list. It's not a bad list. It's not a good list. It's his list. The right itinerary for you will probably look quite different. And the pacing will depend on you.
      Also, this list is put together in a format for his video. It's very poorly ordered in terms of actually seeing these things. Make sure you do stuff in the same general area on each particular day so you aren't spending all your time on trains.

    But make sure your hotel has western bathrooms 🚽 there are men/woman joint bathrooms on the streets there are so many
    Beautiful things to see but be careful when changing your America money they may try to cheat you on the street always change your money in a money changers places also gambling is great the pingchu games are fun
