Considered the world’s largest city with more than 37 million people, Tokyo is a mesmerizing mix of age-old tradition and futuristic modernity, high-octane energy and hidden retreats. As Japan’s capital, the sprawling metropolis holds significant importance for the country’s history, culture, and economy and, instead of being daunting, is a delight to discover. Small, modest noodle shops sit next to high-end sushi joints, surprising green spaces and nearby nature balance out the urban landscape, and there’s always – always – something new to do.
