For many Akihabara is synonymous with technology and video games, something you will discover when you walk its colorful streets full of led screens, neon lights and repetitive electronic melodies. Here we can find an endless number of stores specialized in video games, technology, anime, manga and all kinds of related items such as costumes, figures and hobbies, among other things. Here we will also find the typical “brown cafes” and others much more strange like cat-cafes and other very freaks.
Located in the heart of Tokyo, this great park is a true oasis of tranquility in the heart of the city, as well as a trip to the Japanese past. Here is the royal palace of tokyo, which is the residence of the Emperor of Japan and his family. The palace can only be visited two days a year, but the gardens that surround it can be freely visited throughout the year and it is really worth it!
Neon lights, robots, karaoke and loud music Is there anything more Japanese than this? Don’t miss out on living one of the craziest and most Japanese experiences out there. These shows fuse the main symbols of Japanese culture, combining beasts that breathe fire, ninjas that play electric guitars and dancing androids, which will make you feel in the middle of a science fiction movie from the eighties.
Opened in 2018, after the ancient and traditional Tsukiji market closed, the Toyosu market is a true paradise for lovers of authentic Japanese sushi. Every day, very early in the morning, the traditional auction of the gigantic tuna sold here is held. Also in this market there is a restaurant area, where you can try the freshest fish dishes in all of Tokyo, and therefore the tastiest!
Sushi is without a doubt one of the most traditional dishes of Japanese cuisine and one of the tastiest as well. In Tokyo there are a large number of restaurants specialized in this Japanese delight, from the most gourmet and exclusive, to the most popular and crowded as the famous “ribbon restaurants”. In these curious restaurants we will see an endless number of pieces pass in front of us and we can freely choose the ones that most attract our attention, they can all try them and at the end of our evening the waiter will simply record the number of dishes we ate and give us the bill final.
Strolling through the waters of Tokyo Bay is one of the best alternatives to get to know another side of this vibrant city, especially if you do it at night. There are many boats that cross the Sumidagawa River, on round trips from the Tokyo Skytree or in the Ryogoku neighborhood, and which reach the waters of Tokyo Bay, near Odaiba and the Rainbow Bridge, giving us some views really spectacular of the whole city and its coastal area.
