Tokyo offers an intriguing mix of ultra modern and ancient

history with a seemingly unlimited choice of shopping,

entertainment, culture and dining. The city's history can be

appreciated in districts such as Asakusa, and in many excellent

museums, historic temples and gardens. Contrary to common

perception, Tokyo also offers a number of attractive green

spaces in the city centre and within relatively short train rides

at its outskirts. The epicentre of Tokyo is the city ward of

Chiyoda Ku which has the Imperial Palace and gardens located

at its centre.

Popular tourist attractions include the Tokyo Tower - which

at 333 metres is the world's tallest self-supporting steel

tower and one of the most recognisable landmarks in Tokyo.

It is rather like a red version of the Eiffel Tower in Paris at

320 metres. The tallest building in Japan is the 634 metre

Tokyo Skytree with two observation decks at heights of

350 and 450 meters, making them the highest observation

decks in Japan and some of the highest in the world.

The Odaiba area of Tokyo can be best compared to Canary

Wharf in London - but bigger. This is a popular shopping and

entertainment district on a man-made island in Tokyo Bay in

the south east corner of the central Tokyo. It has grown into

one of Tokyo's most popular tourist attractions with a wide

selection of shopping, dining and leisure options. It is home

to some of Tokyo's boldest architectural creations, such as the

Fuji TV Building, Telecom Centre and Tokyo Big Sight. Oedo

Onsen is a hot spring theme park where you can enjoy various

types of indoor and outdoor baths which are fed by hot spring

water pumped from a depth of 1400 metres.
