It's difficult to grasp how big the city of Tokyo really is. While Tokyo proper itself has over 13 million people, the metropolitan urban area is much bigger. Tokyo is one of the most powerful cities in the world in terms of economy and global influence, and it also maintains an incredible tourist atmosphere.
Tokyo is bustling with an eclectic mix of stunning, all-encompassing modernity and a fascinating tinge of the traditional. From mid-hike beer gardens to an amazing gourmet cuisine living off some of the best fresh markets in the world, Tokyo is an excellent city to pay a visit. Grab yourself a Harajuku fashionista and spend a romantic late evening watching the Tokyo Tower lights turn off. Hop on a train line and head down to the Golden Gai district for a drink at a 2,000 square meter den.
