Things to do in Tokyo
Tokyo has an amazing energy to it that’s not quite like anywhere else in the world. The city embraces both the modern and the traditional, giving it a unique culture. Tokyo has something to offer everyone—interesting history, great fashion, an exciting nightlife, and incredible restaurants. Fun fact: Tokyo actually has more Michelin starred restaurants than any other city in the world! No matter how long you visit, you’ll find it hard to run out of new things to do in Tokyo.
The Imperial Palace
Located right in the heart of Tokyo is a surprisingly peaceful park called Chiyoda. Within the park is the Imperial Palace—home to the Emperor of Japan. While the palace itself is only open to the public two days each year, guided tours of the grounds take place between Tuesdays and Saturdays. The palace grounds are gorgeous and full of some fascinating history. Chiyoda is also one of the best places in Tokyo to see the cherry blossoms if you are visiting during cherry blossom season in March and April.
Sumo Wrestling and Kabuki Shows
While in Tokyo, a must-do activity is to watch something authentically Japanese. If you are a fan of sports, you’ll have so much fun watching a traditional sumo wrestling match. If you love musical theatre, book a ticket to one of Tokyo’s many Kabuki shows. Kabuki actors wear elaborate clothing and makeup very different to what you’ll see in Australian theatre. Kabuki theatres can even provide you with English audio through headphones so you’ll understand everything that is happening in the show.
Asakusa District - Old Tokyo
To experience Old Tokyo, pay a visit to the Asakusa district. In this neighbourhood, you’ll find some of Tokyo’s beautiful temples and traditional architecture. The most popular temple to visit is Senso-ji. This temple dates all the way back to the year 628 AD and is the perfect representation of Japanese architectural style from that time. The temple is made up of a large red gate, a pagoda with five tiers, and several smaller buildings all built in the same style.
Shibuya is one of the business hubs of Tokyo. The neighbourhood is full of great shops, restaurants, and nightlife and is especially popular with young people. While in Shibuya, you can visit the Meiji Shrine and Yoyogi Park, but what the district is most known for is the Shibuya Crossing. It’s rumoured to be the busiest street crossing in the world. Once the lights turn, you can cross the intersection with thousands of other people walking in all directions.
Shinjuku is considered to be the entertainment centre of Tokyo. The neighbourhood is especially known for its exciting nightlife. Within Shinjuku is the Golden Gai—a series of narrow laneways lined with over 200 bars. The bars are tiny and some only have seating for a few customers at a time, but it’s a Tokyo experience that you can’t miss! Once you’ve visited a couple bars, Shinjuku is full of great late-night food options as well.
Harajuku is considered to be the fashion capital of Tokyo and has some of the city’s best shopping. The neighbourhood is also a great spot for people watching, particularly “Harajuku girls” who wear creative styles in bright colours.
Yes, Tokyo has its own Disneyland! It’s located south of the city centre and is easily accessible on Tokyo’s metro system. Disneyland Tokyo is home to some Disney favourites, including Cinderella’s Castle, Splash Mountain, “It’s a Small World”, and of course lots of Disney characters that you can meet.
For the best view over the city, head up to the top of the Tokyo Skytree. The building is the second largest structure in the world and offers incredible views over the city with mountains in the background. For an extra special experience, visit the Skytree for sunrise or sunset.
One of the most well-known spots to visit on a trip to Tokyo is actually located outside the city itself. Mount Fuji is an active volcano that last erupted in 1707. Mount Fuji has some great hikes and national parks surrounding it, and if you visit in winter, there are some great ski resorts. Mount Fuji is especially beautiful during the cherry blossom season when the whole region blooms in shades of pink.
While visiting Tokyo, be sure to eat as much authentic Japanese food as you can. Tokyo has more Michelin starred restaurants than any other city in the world, some of which are very affordable. Theme cafes are also a popular trend for people visiting Tokyo. Some cafe themes include Hello Kitty, monsters, robots, and even hedgehogs. Some must-try foods during your time in Tokyo are ramen, sushi, tonkatsu, and some of the freshest fish you’ll ever taste.
