Japan’s vibrant capitol offers visitors far more than high-rise and high-tech modernity. This is a city steeped with the culture of its long history and exploration here will show that the sum of the parts will appear to total more than the whole.

Here some 88,000 restaurants make up the city’s dining choices and within them are more Michelin-star restaurants than any other cities of the world. Variety is the spice of life and of course and Tokyo will not disappoint in this regard. Japan has a reputation for immaculate care and presentation for food preparation and it is no accident that Tokyo has been declared the culinary capitol of the world. Visitors should not miss the opportunity to explore the multitude of dining options here.

Tsukiji Fish Market is the largest and busiest fish market in the world and of course where there are fish markets there are seafood restaurants. The markets are the place to go for that much recommended sushi breakfast. The restaurants of note here are Sushi Daiwa and Sushi Dai but for a delightfully less formal breakfast there are countless sushi counters throughout the market from where one can eat while enjoying the busy spectacle of a market in action and one can’t get better fresh fish anywhere than at this market. For those who prefer cooked seafood there is plenty of choice here.

For my stay here I chose to stay at the Conrad Tokyo located a few steps away from Ginza, the exclusive shopping and entertainment area of the city and also close to some major Tokyo attractions. The hotel has breathtaking views over Tokyo Bay and the historic Hamarikyu Gardens. Conrad Tokyo features 290 spacious luxury rooms and suites with facilities including 4 restaurants, a bar & lounge, a wedding chapel, Tokyo’s largest hotel spa & fitness gym and a 25-metre swimming pool decorated in ‘Sumi-e’ style. Ballrooms and function rooms are also available for events and meetings.

Ginza is recognised as one of the most exclusive shopping districts in the world and here all major international brands including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior and Gucci. Ginza is also the site of some of Tokyo’s best restaurants. Both Mitchelin-star restaurants Sushi Mizutani and Sushi Yoshitake are to be found here.

Visitors lucky enough to arrive in Tokyo during late March and early April will be treated to the floral spectacle of the Cherry Blossom Season. It is at the Imperial Palace, residence of Japan’s Emperor, and the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden that the best displays of this lovely bloom can be seen.

Holidaying with the whole family? TokyoDisneyland features fun and great entertainment for everyone. It is the mix of modern life and the serenity of Japanese well-mannered culture that makes Tokyo such a fascinating and enjoyable city.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
