Pros: - No haggling - Japanese are always straight to the point - They mind their own business - I personally thinks that Tokyo is a very safe place to visit - Clean - Easy to travel around with Bus / Public Transport - IC Card is very convenient Cons: - We really think that they can include more benches for tourists - Having hard time locating restroom / toilet in public area especially if you're foreigner who doesn't speak Japanese - My personal opinion, most Japanese shows their frown expressions and aren't very helpful or friendly if you are a foreigner and has no benefits or becoming their potential client.
Overall, i am quite satisfied and happy trip to Tokyo during my honeymoon period and my Missus has already planning our next trip to Tokyo again.
Must try foods: Chanko Nabe (Sumo Hotpot) - incredibly delicious, unexpected gem Okonomiyaki Izakaya foods - meat skewers Sushi and Sashimi - incredibly fresh and tasty Over-rated foods: Ramen - most we had weren't all that spectacular; almost similar to the ones at ramen champion in Singapore
I can never get enough of Tokyo. I will usually visit (and re visit) the 7 main areas: Shibuya, Harajuku (including Meiji Shrine), Omote-sando (in one day); Shinjuku (it merits a day by itself); Osiage, Asakusa Shrine and Sumida River cruise ending at Ginza.
The rest, if you have time, are Akihabara (Electronic geek and Anime). If you plan yourself well, you can slowly savour the distinct differences of each districts.
I have been to Tokyo numerous times and it is one place that I always look forward to returning. Food is great whether it's a small ramen shop or a more upmarket teppanyaki dinner as the quality of food is always consistently good.
Lots of cute and interesting stuff to keep both the young and old entertained. The temples and shrines are beautiful and I totally recommend visits to the many gardens in the city.
Tokyo is a vibrant city with around 13 million of residents. Having an application that could translate any languages to Japanese language is a must as most of the local peoples having a very limited English conversation.
There are many places to visit like Akihabara, Asakusa, Shinjuku, Shibuya and more.
One of the best cities in the world I have visited. Great food and nice and cool weather during after October until March where you can occasionally get to see snow in the beginning of the year.
Your travel experience would change drastically if you know Japanese, in the better way, otherwise, consult google translate or pocket dictionaries for basic useful sentences because Japanese people do not speak English. You will find it hard to get used to their accent and sometimes the word they say in English might mean a complete different word in real English. For example, a Cooler might mean A/C or water tank depending on which type of English you are using, Japan or International's.
I like to transportation systems especially Subways and Train that link and cover all areas even a bit confused in first time but I finally understand from day 2.
Nice place for shopping. Safety City!!
Tokyo is one of the most famous cities in the world and it is a metropolitan city. It is very clean and vibrant, filled with all the Japanese passions.
It is a must visit city during visit to Japan. The city is very organised and transportation is easy to access everywhere in Japan. For foreigners can get JR Pass to explore Japan, which is very affordable price.
Very bit, modern, clean and safe. Plenty to see and do, subways excellent and reasonable price. Surprisingly, Tourists can get by with basic English.
Locals usually eager to help.
Great City To Travel. The people are very friendly and helpful indeed. Well connected by train, underground train and high speed train
If you have more time, you should spend a couple of days to take short tours to outside Tokyo like Izu, Atami, Karuizawa, Nagano, etc.
, which can add more good scenery views where Tokyo does not have enough.
Tokyo is a lovely place to visit. There are loads of things to do in Tokyo; sigthseeing, food, amusement (Disneyland) and parks etc.
Lovely country. Lovely people. They are so polite and I fall in love with japan. Awesome country indeed! I will surely come again!
Is a polite people's and good city to most visit,clean city and have a good transportation system provide,goods services provided.
As a capital city of Ja[an, Tokyo is most popolous metropolis. Unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture and dining.
I loved this city. So much to do, and with the bullet train it is easy to get out and see more of Japan from this central hub.
If Tokyo is not on your bucket list, then get a pen.
Excellent food, warm people, definitely one of the best places I have ever been and looking forward to returning again.
Plan your trips and places you want to visit. Purchase the card which you can use for riding the trains and buses.
Be sure to have mobile connection to keep track of the train schedules. Bring only few things with you. Don't travel with heavy luggage. You can buy in Japan in case you do not have enough clothes and other personal needs. Study few Japanese words that you think you would use more often.
good for family vacations. good food! some of the inhabitant don't really mind tourist that visit their country.
overall it was nice.
Amazing city, bustling with life no matter day or not. Every station in Tokyo is like a whole different world.
Shibuya station the times square equivalent of Japan; Akihabara station, the Geek central; Harajuku Station, home to the harajuku girls. Definitely a city not to be missed.
Sushi is great!! fresh and good quality.. Onsen is good, help me to reduce my leg paint after long day walk.
Tokyo is a very clean and friendly city. It's easy to go around as the transport system is very efficient.
Shopper's haven as you will find both the usual and the most unusual items. Food from off the streets to the most expensive diners are all good. Outside the city you can also find lots of nature trips. Everything you'd enjoy is here.
Tokyo is an excellent city to visit. 5 days, at least, is recommended for staying here for the first time.
i wasn't really attracted by Tokyo, people in there seems under huge pressure and all the places are tiny.
There are many shopping sight however they all closed early.
