Tokyo is a huge, bustling metropolis which many people dream of seeing. It's a city of bright colors, neon lights and high technology, but also of quiet tea houses, cherry blossom and Buddhist temples. Tokyo began life on much more modest terms – as a fishing village called Edo. It became the center of power in Japan during the 1600s but didn't officially become the country's capital until much later. Today it's known as an ultra-modern city, but also one in which Japanese heritage is strongly in evidence. It is an utterly fascinating place for visitors to explore and the popularity of flights to Tokyo is easy to understand.
There's so much to do in Tokyo that visitors will struggle to fit it all in. Each of Tokyo's neighborhoods has something different to offer. There are the beautiful shrines of Chiyoda, the hip Shibuya and the bright lights of Akihabara. Tokyo is a city of contradictions – calm and peaceful one moment, frenetic and loud the next. People flying to Tokyo can visit ornate temples, play garish video games or see a master chef preparing sushi. There are traditional noh, bunraku and kabuki theatre shows as well as modern jazz clubs. Day or night, there's plenty going on in Tokyo.
