A unique city, the oldest and the newest collide in Tokyo. The ancient Shinto shrines and futuristic skyscrapers contrast with each other, and the tranquil garden full of beautiful cherry blossoms is overlooked by bright billboards promoting the latest technology and high-end fashion. When traveling, working or studying Japanese in Tokyo, the city has many amazing places, so here are the top ten reasons we love Tokyo.
From world-class restaurants that showcase the cooking skills of the world’s top chefs, to family-run restaurants that provide delicious traditional food, and even street food stalls that smell so good that people passing by can’t help but try, Tokyo is full of food fun of. Once you are full of Japanese specialties such as fresh sushi, tempura and soba noodles, you can immerse yourself in a variety of fusion and international cuisine scenes without looking back.
There are historical sites commemorating Japan's historical heritage, famous museums, and ever-changing theater performances, performances, art galleries, and music events. Culture lovers will never get tired of Tokyo. Every March, the cherry trees in the park are full of pink flowers like cotton candy. These flowers, also known as cherry blossoms, have long represented the beautiful and short human life in culture.
Regardless of your personal style, in Tokyo, expressing yourself through clothing is admired, no, it is admired. Harajuku is a famous and vibrant shopping district with some exquisite role-playing shops, youth fashion shops and vintage clothing shops. The people of Tokyo are known for their fashion sense, and they are incredibly fashionable: just a walk in this city will give you all the style inspiration you need.
4. Hometown of "New"
Tokyo is a global technology and innovation center. With such dense city lights (think neon signs and billboards that make Times Square look like your grandma's old TV), it is one of the brightest places on earth, seen from space! Marvel at the heated seats High-tech toilets, buy the latest electronic products in the nine-story electronic department store, and board the high-speed bullet train to explore some other cities in Japan-here you will easily feel like living in the future.
5. And "old"
Parts of Tokyo may be super modern, but the city also has a rich history. No matter where you go, you will not be far away from stunning shrines, temples or protected gardens. Meiji-jingu Shrine is near Harajuku. Both Hie Shrine and Nezu Shrine have a staircase. Both sides of the staircase are red torii gates, just like the famous Kyoto Fushii Inari Taisha Shrine (fushii Inari Taisha Shrine) is the same (so bring your camera). Don't forget to live like a local and spend an evening exploring the restaurants and bars of non-Kita Yokocho, a charming alley illuminated by paper lanterns, away from the busy tourist streets.
6. Mount Fuji
Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan and one of the three sacred peaks in Japan. When the weather is clear, you can see Mt. Fuji from the city, and Mt. Fuji is very close to you. You can check it out when you are in Tokyo. Take the train and hike to the top of the mountain to enjoy the beautiful views of Tokyo and the lakes surrounding the volcano.
7. Outright weird
Although Japanese traditional culture is relatively conservative, Tokyo pushes the boundaries of creativity. In other words, this city is full of totally strange things to do, see, and experience. Would you like to find a place to sleep tonight? This is the key to your little "capsule" hotel room. Need an umbrella, some fermented soybeans or a can of vegetables? Let's do this: an unusual vending machine in Tokyo has already put you at ease. Do you remember eating a meal after a meal? Dining in a robot restaurant, you really will never forget it.
Over 125 million people in Japan speak Japanese, which makes Tokyo an excellent place to learn Japanese. This bustling city also attracts tourists, students and professionals from all over the world, so it is also a good city for chatting, meeting new friends and testing language skills.
9. Hot springs
If you want to leave Tokyo, go to Hot Springs. Japan is dominated by volcanic and geothermal activities, and has thousands of natural hot springs. These steaming hot pots, known as hot springs, are the perfect place to soak, relax and let the mineral-rich water work wonders in your mind, body and soul. By the way, everyone wants you to swim naked, but men and women bathe in different pools.
10. Skiing and snowboarding
Japan’s winter is snowy and the mountainous volcanic terrain means there are some great skiing and snowboarding opportunities in winter. Some tourist attractions, including Shiga Kogen and Hakuba, which hosted the 1998 Winter Olympics, are only a few hours away from Tokyo.
