Tokyo (東京), Japan, is one of the world’s greatest cities, and there’s so much to do and see when you visit. From temples and shrines, to gardens and museums, you’ll never run out of attractions. Out of all the things you could do, I’ve chosen a top 25 list for this awesome city (and just so you know food is my first choice in Tokyo)!

1. Ameya-Yokochō (アメヤ横丁) – A giant open air market that offers clothes, cosmetics, food, and restaurants and bars.
2. Meiji Shrine (明治神宮) – This Shinto shrine, surrounded by beautiful forest, is extremely significant.

4. Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden (新宿御苑) – The garden is a beautiful attraction in Tokyo, with French gardens, Japanese gardens, and a green house.
5. Ginza (銀座) / Yurakucho (有楽町) – Ginza is a great area of town for upscale shopping and dining, while Yurakucho is famous for Izakaya bars and restaurants under the railroad track.

7. Tsukiji Market (築地市場) – One of the most famous attractions in all of Tokyo is the Tsukiji Market (築地市場), the biggest seafood market in the world.
8. Shibuya (渋谷区) – With the busiest intersection in the world, Shibuya (渋谷区) is also home to shopping and restaurant.
9. Sumida River (隅田川) – At Tokyo’s Sumida River, you can either just walk around the park and enjoy the riverside views, or you can take the Tokyo Cruise in a boat.

14. Senso-ji (金龍山浅草寺) – Visiting this temple is one of the top things to do in Tokyo, frequented by both tourists and religious pilgrims. It’s the oldest temple in Tokyo.
15. Edo-Tokyo Museum (江戸東京博物館) – It looks a little like a UFO, but it’s one of Tokyo’s main museums, that aims to preserve the history of the city.
16. Fine Dining – Let’s just face it, Tokyo is one of the best cities in the world for high class dining – atmosphere, presentation, food, it’s all just stunning!

20. Odaiba (お台場) – This area of Tokyo is full of things to do like Legoland, and Palette Town, an indoor amusement park. It’s also known as Tokyo’s entertainment island.
21. Yoyogi Park (代々木公園) – Located next to Meiji Shrine, and just a short distance from Harajuku and Shinjuku, this park is popular for exercise and dance.
22. Nezu (根津), Yanaka (谷中 (台東区) – Tokyo is a truly modern city, but there are a couple places like Nezu and Yanaka that have held strong to their traditional and cultural roots.
23. Onsen (温泉) – You’ve got to strip down naked before you can enter a Japanese public bath.
24. Mount Takao (高尾山) – Just 50 km from central Tokyo, this mountain is popular for climbing and is a sacred religious mountains. Makes a good day trip from Tokyo.

    A comment about his face while he eats.

  12. in addition i recommand to dont forget the Nightlife !!!..but keep in mind that start sooner that in foreign country 5am, and finish 9-10am, the reason is train/metro shutdown near 10-11am and almost all workers have 1hour before go home..and due to geography its night quite earlier at 7pm.
    -Live music show. (seek on internet before go, look website, contact venue by phone or go to 7mart/lawson vending machine)..budokan tokyo zepp festival , tokyo opéra, etc….japan is the 3rd world music market, idol, jrock, jpop, jazz etc..there's thousand of bands…
    -Maid café.(mainly akihabara)..its only in japan dont miss it.
    -Music Bar and club (shibuya, )
    -Oppai Bar. (ikebukuro).come on, you are man right, bring lot of cash 🙂
    -Love hotel (shibuya, love hotel hill)…yes there's a big hill in middle of tokyo) but you will need a buddy.
    -Karaoke with japanese friends…may be the most coolest thing to do.
