One of the most diverse and interesting cities in the world is Tokyo, Japan. Tourists have a nearly endless plethora of activities from which to choose, based on their interests. The following are some of the most popular tourist attractions in Tokyo: The Tokyo Tower, which stands tall at 1091 feet, is the second highest architectural structure in Japan. It is painted orange and white to comply with the regulations for air safety.
Taking a Sumida River cruise is also a necessity for any new Tokyo tourist. This cruise / tour will allow a visitor to see all the major sights of Tokyo in one relaxing river trip. It begins at the Seaside Top Observatory, goes through Asakusa, to SensÅ-ji, the oldest Japanese temple in existence. Shop for your souvenirs at the Nakamise Shopping Arcade.
No tour would be complete without a visit to the Imperial Palace, which serves as the main residence of the Emperor. The Meiji Shinto Shrine is a shrine dedicated to spirits that the Japanese consider deities – those of the Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken – and it offers some of the most relaxing trails of Tokyo. Though it was destroyed in the second world war, it was quickly rebuilt. And you can end your trip in Ginza, the main center of commerce in Tokyo, one of the centers for an authentic Japanese dinner and the hub of the city's nightlife.
