Located on the main island Honshu, Tokyo is the capital and the world’s most populated metropolitan area, with over 37 million residents. It has a subtropical climate, with mild winters and warm humid summers, as you may confirm on the weather cameras.
This city merges ultramodern skyscrapers and traditional historic temples, such as the Meiji Shrine or the Imperial Palace. Museum lovers have a wide choice of exhibitions, for instance in the Tokyo National Museum or the Edo-Tokyo Museum. Other main attractions are the Cherry Blossom Festivals, the Tokyo Tower, Shibuya crossing and the sports arena Ryogoku Kokugikan. Modern Japanese culture is strongly connected to manga and anime, as it becomes evident when touring the Akihabara district.
Narita and Haneda are the two main airports serving Tokyo. Although Haneda International Airport is closer to central Tokyo, most international flights land at Narita International Airport, which offers many public transportation options to the city centre. Should you prefer, there is also the possibility of hiring a car.
