It’s kind of strange that a street crossing is a must-see landmark in Tokyo, but it has become so iconic you really should. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that it looks just like it does in the movies. The great thing is it doesn’t take too much time and will leave you free for other activities.
Tsukiji Fish Market
Fish is big business in Japan and the Tsukiji Fish Market is the best place to see what the fuss is about. You have to get there very early to see the frenzied tuna fish auctions, but it’s a great spot for breakfast.
If food is what you’re going to Tokyo for then, you must check out the Robot Restaurant, if for nothing other than the atmosphere. The restaurant is more about the experience than the food, but it’s a great spectacle.
Tokyo teenagers and young adults, in particular, are known for their wild fashion senses, and Harajuku is one of the best places to see that. You will come across the kawaii culture of Japan, but there are also plenty of stores selling fantastical objects that you’ll need to buy.
There are many different types of food on offer, and the district is just five minutes away from the breathtaking Meiji Shrine. The shrine is a great place to learn about Japanese history and Emperor Meiji.
There are so many things to see and do in Tokyo, but these are the ones we recommend you don’t miss out on while you’re there.
