Things to Do in Tokyo
The Sprawling Capital of Japan
Tokyo, the second largest city in the world, is a modern marvel that have a billion things to offer to its visitors. It is the capital city of Japan—the country that bestowed us with ‘Sake’, Karaoke and Anime. An intriguing feature of this pulsating city is ‘pod hotels’. Staying over at a chic capsule hotel is one of the coolest things to do in Tokyo. After sunset, when the lights are switched on, the city looks more like a living-breathing entity than the concrete jungle that it is. An endearing part of the geographic features of the city are all the Cherry blossoms blooming on the trees that line-up the streets.
Along with the regular luxury and budget hotels, Tokyo is pretty famous for having some of the most innovative accommodations on the planet. Apart from the pod hotels, travelers can have a unique and memorable experience staying at these types of accommodations- Yasuda no Ie, I-Cafe Akiba Place, Super Hotel Ikebukuro and Komadori Sanso.
Now that your accommodation’s been sorted, let’s have a look at the spots to be included in your things to do in Tokyo list-
