Tokyo is a futuristic and technologically advanced megacity, visitors flying to Tokyo can experience a city that retains traces of an ancient, more contemplative approach to life that sits comfortably alongside a tech savvy lifestyle giving the city a great architectural and cultural juxtaposition.

Peak Season:

Spring and autumn are the most temperate seasons. Despite the heat and humidity of the summer, rates in the summer are going up. Many local festivals are celebrated in Tokyo in July, and the school summer holiday runs from the end of July through August. Peak travel times for flights to Tokyo tend to fall around Japanese holidays when reservations need to be booked far in advance.

Off Season:

The New Year’s celebration is January 1 through 3, which is a busy travel time, but the rest of January, February, and March are quiet so cheap flights to Tokyo are easier to find and sightseeing attractions are not nearly as busy. Plus, skies tend to be clear and sunny and the weather is chilly but dry. One of world’s biggest animation events, Tokyo International Anime Fair takes place in March and draws anime enthusiasts from around the world.

Why visit?

Tokyo is located on Honshu, Japan’s largest island. This neon-bathed city is one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, home to the Imperial Family and Imperial Palace, seat of government and home to over 13 million people, making it one of the most densely populated cities on the planet.

To get a feel for the bustling metropolis, visit the Tsujiki market, one of the busiest wholesale fish markets in the world, where you can see fresh produce from the highly skilled and dedicated Japanese fishing industry. Or, visit the kimono shop at the Daimaru department store, where the prices will leave you scraping your jaw off the floor. For a bird’s eye view, whizz up to the observatory of the Tokyo Tower, from where you can even see Mount Fuji and Mount Tsukuba. And for a bargain, head to the colourful Akihabara (or Electric Town), the best place for electronic, computer and anime and otaku items.

For moments of calm, stroll through the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace or visit Meiji Jingu, the Shinto shrine just behind Harajuku station.

Getting around Tokyo

Tokyo is known internationally for having great public transport. It’s clean, safe and efficient. Tourists usually stick to the subway or Japan Railways (JR). The subway has 13 different lines that run from early morning to late evening. Avoid the rush hours if possible as they can get extremely crowded. You can buy a Tokyo Combination Ticket which offers unlimited rides on the Tokyo trains, subway and bus lines for one day. Taxis are safe, clean and comfortable, but among the highest-priced in the world. Drivers might not speak English, so it’s a good idea to have your destinations written in Japanese before boarding.

Getting from the airport to the city

Tokyo has two major international airports, Tokyo Haneda airport (HND) and Narita International airport (NRT). The whizziest way of getting from the airport to the city is on the Keisei Skyliner, which takes 36 minutes to reach Nippori and 41 minutes to get to Ueno. It’s twice as expensive as the Express train, which takes 75 minutes to reach Keisei Ueno Station. Regular bus services operate from the airport but tend to be a slower (if less expensive) option than the trains.There are taxis available at the airport but are the most expensive option.
