The opportunities are endless in Tokyo! It's a city made up of twelve originally separate cities, all of which have a very different vibe and style. Asakusa, the old town of Tokyo, you can see the historical and traditional Japan with temples and some old buildings. Shibuya on the other hand is where you can experience modern and young Japan. Akihabara is often described as the center of the world's gaming industry and a must for every SEGA fan!
Nakamise Shopping Street in Asakusa. This is one of the oldest parts of Tokyo.
Hōzōmon Gate at the Sensoji Temple Complex in Asakusa.
Shinjuku is one of several centers of this vast metropolis. Shinjuku Station is one of the busiest train stations in the world.
The Shibuya Scramble Crossing is a famous, yet basic, landmark of Tokyo. It's just a pedestrian crossing. But before going here you will never understand just how interesting a pedestrian crossing can be. The sheer amount of people crossing here every time it's a green light is huge.
The trains are always present in some way in Tokyo. This is still in Shibuya.
The world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market. This part, where the restaurants are located, does still exist. But the actual fish market has closed and moved since my visit in 2016.
A street scene in Akihabara. The area is known for computer games and gaming culture.
Tokyo Imperial Palace is one of the largest letdowns during my travels. You don't come closer than this. And the buildings you see aren't even the Imperial Palace.
