A journey to Japan will be incomplete without a stop in Tokyo, the country’s iconic capital. Where else in the world can visitors see the world’s most popular fish market, pray at a 1,000-year-old mosque, and dine on the charmingly called Piss Alley all in the same day? What are the top 9 places to visit in Tokyo?

Nezu Shrine

Nezu Shrine is a Shinto shrine in Bunkyo ward, which is also within walking distance from Ueno city and is not far from the Yanaka area. The shrine is better known for its Azalea festival in the spring, but it is a wonderful place to visit any time of year. If Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto appeals to you, Nezu Shrine also has a beautiful tunnel with several vermilion torii gates that is photogenic.

Inokashira Park

Yoyogi Park and Shinjuku Gyoen are two excellent parks in Tokyo’s city centre, but Inokashira Onshi Park is ideal for a more relaxed and quiet environment. Inokashira Onshi Park is situated in Kichijoji, one of Tokyo’s coolest neighbourhoods, where a plethora of chic and fashionable cafes and shops congregate. Shibuya and Shinjuku are easily accessible from this location. It’s one of Tokyo’s biggest parks, with a huge area that includes a pond, aquarium, and other attractions, and it’s also a popular location for seeing cherry blossoms and autumn leaves. At the park’s far end is the world-famous Ghibli Museum. If you like Ghibli films, this is a must-see attraction (tickets must be purchased in advance.)

Tokyo Imperial Palace Area

You can take a bus or walk from Tsukiji to Tokyo Station via the Ginza district. This shopping district is well-known for its large department stores and charming cafes, which are ideal for people-watching. The Imperial Palace of Tokyo is then a short walk away. The new palace, which was constructed on the site of the old Edo castle in the 1960s, is the residence of the Japanese royal family. The palace and gardens are enclosed by a moat, which, along with the bridges that cross it, makes for a beautiful spot to stroll while also providing opportunities for Instagram shots.

Asakusa

Sensoji Temple is one of the many attractions in this fascinating area, as is the Nakamise shopping path, which runs from the Kaminarimon entrance gate to the temple. this street and the nearby streets are always bustling with people dressed in traditional kimonos, and on the main roads, you can take a rickshaw tour pulled by people dressed in period attire. Kaminari-okoshi is a traditional Japanese dish to try, and just across the river from Asakusa is the exceptionally tall Tokyo Sky Tree, as well as the oddly shaped golden flame atop Asahi Beer Hall. Lunch in Asakusa is also a nice option, with a variety of restaurants offering tempura, such as Daikokuya Tempura Honten.

Yebisu Beer Brewery

After paying your respects at the Meiji Jingu Shrine, return to Ebisu on the Yamanote line by taking two stops south. At the Yebisu Beer Brewery, you can hear about the origins of Yebisu beer brewing in Japan, including the fascinating fact that a bottle of beer once cost more than a meal, and you can also sample some beer (which is never boring!). If the beer taste did not satisfy your appetite, there is also a bar where you can go to drink. Yebisu Garden Place, where the museum is located, is a very nice area with restaurants, bars, and department stores.

Ku Gyoen National Garden

Shinjuku Gyoen is steeped in tradition, having been established during the Edo Period as a botanical garden for Japan’s royal family. It is divided into three parts, the first of which is a typical Japanese garden with wide ponds. Every November, this garden hosts a chrysanthemum display, which is ideal for photographers and horticulturists alike. A French and English-styled landscape with expansive lawns and a beautiful greenhouse with many tropical plants are among the other major gardens. The Shinjuku Gyoen, on the other hand, is known for its massive cherry trees. About 400 varieties of cherry blossoms are in full bloom from March to April, making this a perfect place for cherry blossom spotting and a must-visit for cherry blossom lovers.

Takaosan

Takaosan is a refuge for the daring and travellers who enjoy hiking. There is a network of numbered hiking trails that connect to the mountain’s summit. It also has a cable car line, with an observation deck near the summit station where visitors can enjoy a spectacular aerial view of Tokyo. Along with hiking trail number 1, there are attractions such as the monkey park. Many visitors can find Keio Takaosan Onsen Gokurakuyu, a hot spring bathhouse with gender-separated pools, near the mountain’s base for a relaxing experience.

Nakameguro

Sakura trees bloom as they lean over the sloped, canal-like walls surrounding the Meguro River in Nakameguro’s base. Once you’ve taken a minute to enjoy the blossoms (and filled up your camera roll), you’ll see a slew of small boutiques and cafés branching out in all directions around the narrow avenues. Stop by SML, a boutique that sells delightful crafts (especially ceramics) made by Japanese artists, and then head to the corner-side Onibus Coffee for single-origin espresso. If you have a hankering for something to eat? Aoya, a vegetarian restaurant tucked into a traditional wooden home, offers tasty fuel for browsing the neighbourhood’s design-savvy shops.

Small world Tokyo

Imagine a miniature version of Disney World influenced by Japan, complete with flying robots and characters from the anime series Sailor Moon and Evangelion. The recently opened Small Worlds Tokyo occupies 8,000 square metres of a four-story building on the outskirts of Tokyo, across from the Ariake Coliseum, one of the venues for the forthcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The theme park is divided into six parts, each with its own theme, including sections devoted to Sailor Moon and Evangelion. The scenes are a mix of fantasy and reality: The Space Center museum shows the launch of a Saturn V space shuttle in the 1970s, while the Global Village exhibit includes eerily realistic recreations of five cities in Asia and Europe, along with fantastical elements such as dragons and other mythical creatures.
