Exciting, stimulating and safe, Tokyo offers a treasure trove of ever-unfolding surprises and discoveries that beguile the resident and visitor alike. Covering more than 800 square miles (2,000 square kilometres), it is an enormous, fascinating entity unto itself.
Fast-paced, energetic and busy, the city rarely seems to rest, and this is especially true for Tokyo's many centres. Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro and Ueno; Nihombashi, Shimbashi and the famed Ginza. Each centre has its own special flavour and its enthusiastic adherents. Exclusive boutiques, enormous department stores and innumerable specialty shops entice the browser as much as the serious buyer.
Art lovers are drawn to the many fine museums, art galleries and the superb exhibits from around the world that are constantly on display. Music fanciers also have a wide selection of concert halls that have full schedules of both local and visiting musicians performing all types of music. Theatre is extremely active as well, whether for local adaptations from the European and American stage or the spectacular kabuki and highly refined Noh.
From traditional Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines to the high-tech Tokyo Tower, Tokyo is an unforgettable experience to savour and enjoy all year-round.
