One of the world’s largest cities, Tokyo is huge and fascinating place, a patchwork of districts and neighbourhoods, each with their own personality, that form one sprawling, constantly-regenerating whole. Providing the ultimate future-reaching cityscape, if you search deeper amongst the soaring glass towers and neon signs, you’ll find a destination still deeply rooted in tradition; tranquil pockets of the old-ways at the heart of temples and down quiet alleyways.
Tokyo has some fantastic spots to enjoy the cherry blossoms in parks and along rivers. One of the most popular places for a cherry blossom soiree is Ueno Park, where there are more than 1,000 trees lined along a street. In one of the city’s liveliest districts, you can find calm on the lawns of Shinjuku Gyoen surrounded by numerous varieties of blossoms, whilst in Asukayama Park enjoy some blossom illumination in the evenings.
With so much rich culture to explore, a fantastic foodie scene, unique fashions and trends and a breathtaking contrast of cutting edge and old, a holiday to Tokyo is an epic city experience.
