Tokyo information

With a slightly larger population of people in Tokyo, it may seem more crowded than Seoul, but after wandering the beautiful grounds of Meiji Shrine and exploring the narrow shop-lined street of Asakusa, you will begin to understand why it draws the crowds.
Another impressive sight is the Imperial Palace, with its moats and stone walls, and the beautiful Imperial Palace East Gardens. If you have come to shop and have money to spend, then the Ginza district is the place to go. It boasts many top boutiques, the Kabukiza Theatre and one of the most interesting dining areas in Tokyo, including the best restaurant in the Ginza district, Uoya Iccho –which has an English menu available. Tokyo is hugely diverse in its cuisine and you can find traditional delicacies such as unagi (freshwater eel) and wagashi – the accompaniment to ceremonial teas – right through to basic, healthy fast food outlets.
