Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is the world’s most populous metropolitan area. Tokyo is a dynamic, world-leading city that attracts people from around the world. It’s a place where cultures merge, and new things and ideas are constantly being born.

In its heart, its central areas, Tokyo offers dazzling contrasts of the ultra-modern and the traditional. You’ll go from the glittering skyscrapers of its business districts to trend-leading shopping areas to the throwback atmosphere of its historic temples and backstreets, each offering a unique ambiance.

You’ll discover something new and different every time you visit Tokyo, whether it’s historical buildings like Senso-ji Temple or the cutting-edge architecture of the Tokyo Skytree, experiencing digital art at the teamLab permanent exhibit, or dining at the newly opened TOKYU KABUKICHO TOWER.

Despite all these urban attractions, many areas of Tokyo are also rich in nature, distant from the typical image of a huge metropolis. The Okutama area, with its wooded mountains and easily accessible from the city centers, is actually part of Tokyo. There are also 11 remote islands, including the Izu and Ogasawara Islands, where you can enjoy the beautiful ocean and go hiking inland.

Tokyo is, in fact, a region comprising two very different types of attractions: the urban and the natural.
