5 Fun Things To Do In Tokyo

Looking for fun things to do in Tokyo, Japan? Look no further! As the busy capital city and arrival destination for our Global Adventures trip, Tokyo has plenty to see and do. From traditional temples and gardens to modern skyscrapers and bustling streets, here are five must-see attractions:

  1. Visit the Tokyo Skytree: Standing as the tallest structure in Japan, the Tokyo Skytree offers expansive views of the city from its observation decks. Pro tip: catch the sunset for an even more unforgettable experience.
  2. Experience the hustle and bustle of Shibuya: As a popular shopping and entertainment district, Shibuya is home to the iconic scramble crossing and an array of restaurants, bars, and clubs to enjoy. Don't miss out on the chance to immerse yourself in Tokyo's nightlife.
  3. Find peace at the Meiji Shrine: Dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shōken, the Meiji Shrine is surrounded by a beautiful forest and serves as a serene escape from the busy city.
  4. Take a stroll through the Imperial Palace East Gardens: These gardens, located just outside the Imperial Palace, are a great place to relax and take in the sights and sounds of nature. Best of all, they are free to enter and open to the public except on Mondays, Fridays, and special occasions.
  5. Learn about Japanese culture and religion at the Senso-ji Temple: Located in the Asakusa neighborhood, the Senso-ji Temple is a popular tourist attraction and a great opportunity to immerse yourself in Japanese culture. Don't forget to try some of the traditional Japanese snacks in the surrounding streets.

With so much to see and do in Tokyo, these five ideas are just the beginning. Whether you're interested in culture, history, shopping, or you just want to experience the unique atmosphere of the city, these can easily be added to your itinerary if you plan to arrive in this vibrant city early.
