Home to a whopping 37 million people, Japan's capital city of Tokyo is an incredible metropolis teeming with culture, attractions, and amazing cuisine. Tokyo is the largest city on Honshu, the biggest island in the Sea of Japan. Encompassing both old and new, Tokyo is a melting pot of ancient civilisation and tradition as well as high-tech, contemporary lifestyles. The best place to start a holiday in Tokyo is with a visit to the centre of the city, called Chiyoda, where you'll find major historic attractions like the Imperial Palace, the Kanda Shrine, and the Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art. For night owls, Shinjuku is the place to be, as this part of the city boasts countless restaurants, bars, clubs, and late-night karaoke centres. Shoppers will delight in Harajuku, home to amazing street fashion, endless boutique shops, and the famed Meiji Shrine. For an unforgettable experience, get up early and head to the Tsukiji Fish Market, where enormous fish are auctioned off at dawn each morning to the city's best sushi restaurants. If it is cuisine you're after, try the basement food halls in any mall, which are called depachika, for regional specialties, or visit one of the high-end sushi restaurants in Ginza, where expert chefs serve you the freshest seafood available.
