About Tokyo

Tokyo is a city of superlatives. The world’s largest metropolitan area bursts at the seams. Everywhere you look there is something new and exciting. Bright lights and glamour, fashion and art, Tokyo is relentlessly modern. Yet walk a few blocks and you’re awash in its history. Temples, shrines, and glorious parks abound. There is literally something for everyone in Japan’s capital. In springtime the cherry blossoms fill Ueno Park. Summer’s long nights are perfect for strolling the famous shops and restaurants in Shinjuku. Fall’s excitement is palpable as temperatures break and the city’s nightlife is in full swing. In winter, Tokyo’s hot springs are a true delight and nearby Mount Fuji is absolutely stunning. Whether you’re a Japanophile or just someone who appreciates the simple things in life, you can find what you’re looking for in Tokyo.

Uneo Park is a spacious public park in Tokyo’s Taito ward. First established in 1873, Uneo Park draws influence from Western parks popular at the time. Today visitors are free to wander the many paths and open spaces. There are estimated to be over 8,000 tree species in the park and the small bodies of water attract a wide variety of birds. A number of museums are located within Uneo Park including the Tokyo National Museum and the National Museum of Nature and Science. Uneo Park’s most famous attraction, however, is the spring Cherry Blossom Festival when people flock to admire the natural beauty on offer. Truly it is something to behold.
Tokyo Imperial Palace

The Imperial Palace is the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. It is a large park-like area located in Tokyo’s central Chiyoda ward. Set on the site of the former Edo Castle, the modern Imperial Palace is a series of buildings and gardens designed to facilitate the functions of the Japanese Imperial Family. Visitation to the main palace grounds is regulated and arrangements must be made well in advance.
