Do yourself a favour and dive into one of the best cities in the world! Here's our pick of the top 5 things to do in Tokyo

  1. Rated as one of Trip Advisor’s 10 most-booked food experiences globally, the Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku, is where robots, neon screens, mirrors and music collide.
     
  2. Topping off at 634m, Tokyo Skytree is the world’s tallest tower with observations decks at 350 and 450 metres. Marvel at the Tokyo skyline from the tower’s 360 degree observation decks.
     
  3. Did you know that Mt Fuji, Japan’s tallest mountain, is only a day trip from the city. Whilst the cooler months offer the best chance of viewing the elusive Mt Fuji, the official climbing season is during the Japanese summer between July-mid September. Feeling adventurous? Then hit up the roller-coasters of the Fuji-Q-Highland amusement park located at the base of Mt Fuji
     
  4. The Shinkansen, or Japan’s high-speed bullet train is not just a mode of transportation but an experience in itself. They always run on time. The efficient train cleaners will bow deeply to the train as it arrives and then bow repeatedly to all the passengers who disembark, before running through the cabins, wiping down trays and collecting rubbish. All this takes just seven minutes
     
  5. Enjoy the simpler pleasures of life, from navigating the modern Japanese toilet and the sheer confusion of all the buttons, to partaking of the vast array of vending machines that could arguably cater to all your human needs, from hot noodles to sake and even fresh underwear. Watch or join in on the world’s busiest intersection, Shibuya Crossing. Otherwise known as the Scramble, Shibuya Crossing is the intersection of 7 crossroads. The best time to go is at dusk.
Tokyo is a year-round destination. Deciding on what to do and see in Tokyo and beyond really depends on how much time you have. For your sake, we hope you have a month! Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO) has compiled a suggested 2-week itinerary video below.
