  • Tokyo Skytree – the world’s tallest tower offers incredible views over the city and on a clear day you can see the iconic peak of Mount Fuji
  • Pick up the latest gadgets in the Akihabara area, a haven for computer and technology lovers
  • Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is a tranquil oasis in the chaotic city and in the spring it's one of the best places to admire the cherry blossom
  • Get swept along by the crowds at the Shibuya Crossing, an iconic intersection dubbed 'The Scramble' where all the traffic lights turn red and a sea of pedestrians spill onto the road from every direction
