TOKYO TOP 5: To make the most of your trip, we recommend the following MUST SEE, MUST DO sights.
Tokyo’s most visited temple enshrines a golden image of Kannon (the Buddhist goddess of mercy), which, according to legend, was miraculously pulled out of the nearby Sumida-gawa by two fisher- men in AD 628. The image has remained on the spot ever since but is never on public display. The present structure dates from 1958. Entrance to the temple complex is via the fantastic, red Kaminari-mon (Thunder Gate) and busy shopping street Nakamise-dōri.
Ginza is the affluent shopping district in Tokyo, home to the city’s posh boutiques and gleam ing department stores, such as the classic Mitsukoshi and avant-garde Dover Street Market Ginza. There’s also the new high-fashion mall, Ginza Six. But tucked in between some of the more imposing facades are simpler pleasures, like the fine crafts at Takumi, the gourmet food items at Akoymeya and the nine floors of stationery and art supplies at Itōya.
Rumoured to be the busiest intersection in the world (and definitely in Japan), Shibuya Crossing, is like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every pulsing light change. Perhaps nowhere else says ‘Welcome to Tokyo’ better than this. Hundreds of people – and at peak times said to be over 1000 people – cross at a time, coming from all directions. Shibuya also has wonderful shopping experience – Music shops and budget, outrageous apparel are everywhere
This 1958-vintage tower remains a beloved symbol of the city’s post-WWII rebirth. At 333m it’s 13m taller than the Eiffel Tower. The main observation deck is at 145m, giving you amazing views of Tokyo. At an additional cost visit the aquarium on the 1st floor or if you are an anime fan, there is an exhibit of the show One Piece on the 3rd floor.
A total calming experience in a spacious setting surrounded by natural elements and serving the finest home-grown ingredients, Nichigekka rises above the rest. Named after the characters for sun, moon and fire, Nichigekka draws on the passion in their name to give diners the best food, a warm welcoming atmosphere, and hospitality in the chic and modern Ginza area.
