A futuristic city with plenty of historical charm, Tokyo shimmers as neon signs light up the streets below the enormous skyscrapers. The malls go on for miles, packed with all kinds of couture and accessories, while at the world’s tallest tower, the Tokyo Sky Tree, you’ll see traditional construction methods written largely in its pagoda-like design. Japanese cuisine is exceptional, as experienced chefs use the freshest ingredients to create time-honored dishes. On the kabuki stage, you can watch sumo giants do battle in the shade of a cherry tree and imagine you were here when the ancient shoguns ruled.
