Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo, Japan’s bustling capital, mixes the ultramodern and the traditional, from neon-lit skyscrapers and anime shops to cherry trees and temples. The city is famed for its vibrant food scene, and its Shibuya and Harajuku districts are the heart of its trendy teen fashion scene. This huge, wealthy and fascinating metropolis brings high-tech visions of the future side by side with glimpses of old Japan, and has something for everyone. Tokyo is vast and it's best thought of, not as a single city, but a constellation of cities that have grown together. If you don't like what you see, hop on the train and head to the next station, and you will find something entirely different.
