Tokyo Information

Tokyo is approximately 2200 km squared and home to around 13.6 million people. Beyond its size, the sheer density of people in Tokyo will be a change of pace from Bangkok’s relative spaciousness.

Due to rapid growth throughout the 20th century, Bangkok is one of the most congested cities in the world. Tokyo’s cityscape is highly modernized, and the city has been recognized as a leader in local public transportation. It might be crowded, but you’ll be able to navigate Tokyo’s clean and efficient streets with relative ease.

Be sure to make your way to one of Tokyo’s must-sees, including the Edo-Tokyo Museum, the Rikugi-en Garden and Shibuya Crossing, an infamously busy city intersection.

When it comes to food, the basics you must try are soba noodles, Edomae seafood and unagi no kabayaki. For restaurants, more lavish dining options include Shunju Tameikesanno if you’re into eight-course meals (they even have vegan-friendly options) or Fish Bank Tokyo for a view of the city at night and French-inspired seafood dishes.

Wherever you go in Tokyo, you’re sure to be surrounded by incredibly helpful, kind and respectful people who want you to enjoy your stay.
