Tokyo is an exciting city made up of several unique districts, each with their own charms and attractions, so there really is something for everyone!
We recommend a visit to the Asakusa area, which is the ideal place get a feel for traditional downtown culture in Tokyo. When visiting, be sure to see the popular photo spot, the big red lantern, Asakusa's symbol Kaminarimon. As a sign of respect, please bow in front of the gate, then you can enjoy plenty of souvenir shops and snacks in Nakamise before visiting Sensoji Temple.
Next, head over to Tokyo Skytree, a modern icon of Tokyo's cityscape. From the observatory, you can see beautiful views of Tokyo. Also, at the base of Tokyo Skyree is a commercial complex known as TOKYO Solamachi. Here, you can enjoy dining, shopping and even visit the aquarium there!
In the evening, why not check out Ryōgoku! Those with an interest in Japanese national sports will surely be familiar with Sumo but did you also know that the Ryōgoku area is closely related to Sumo. The facility for the Grand Sumo Tournament, The Ryōgoku Kokugikan, is a sacred space for Sumo. We suggest trying the famous Sumo wrestler power food dish called Chankonabe. Chankonabe is a hot pot dish packed with vegetables, seafood and chicken all boiled then simmered in a secret broth. You can try Chakonabe for your self at one of the many restaurants in Ryōgoku.
