Holidays to Tokyo

Tokyo: say the name and images of bright neon signs and shimmering skyscrapers spring to mind. In real life, Japan’s capital is just as frenetic as you’d expect, but it is much more than just a high-tech cityscape; look beyond contemporary Tokyo and you’ll find glimpses of an old world that continues to beguile. There are holy shrines, ancient temples and tranquil gardens, age-old customs like sumo wrestling, kabuki theatre and traditional tea ceremonies. And where else could you experience the manga craze in all its glory, cutting-edge architecture changing before your very eyes or eat at some of the world’s most esteemed restaurants? Experience of all of this and more on one of our luxury affordable holidays to Tokyo.

Travel Tips & Advice for Tokyo

Tokyo Activities


Whatever you do in Tokyo, don’t leave the city without spending time shopping – even if it’s just through the windows! Head to Harajuku to check out the latest fashions modelled by groups of schoolgirls or Akihabara for electronics. Explore the novelty-kitschy side of Tokyo as you drive the streets in a go kart dressed as Mario characters (yes, really!) or grab a group of friends and head to a karaoke box – it’s a national pastime. Our top tip? Don’t plan everything… leave extra time to simply explore what’s going on right now.

Tokyo Food & Drink


While Tokyo famously has more Michelin stars than any other city in the world, that doesn’t mean you can’t eat well for less. As a city obsessed with food, you can always find something that fits your budget and taste buds! Filling noodle and rich dishes can be found at casual eateries around train stations while many of the city’s restaurants specialise in just one or two dishes with menus often created based on what’s been bought from that markets in the morning. And though sake and beer are popular drinks-of-choice, there are a growing number of whisky and scotch bars.

Tokyo Attractions


When it Tokyo take the opportunity to discover the city’s history and heritage at one of the many museums – we love the Tokyo National Museum with its collection of samurai swords, kimonos and Japanese artwork. Learn the importance of tradition and religion in Japanese culture with a visit to the Meiji Shinto Shrine – one of the country’s most popular - or Sensoji, the city’s oldest Buddhist temple. And if you’re craving a day surrounded by greenery, head to Ueno Park, an expansive green space with ponds and temples.
