Tourism in Tokyo
In spite of the fact that there are remains and indications that demonstrate its foundation long ago, it was not until the 15th and 16th centuries that Tokyo first started to flourish and become the city it would later become. Following a period of sustained growth in terms of both its economy and its population, Tokyo and Japan in general entered the stage of international politics in the 19th and 20th centuries until it became the city it is today, despite its successes and failures.
Tokyo is located in the bay with the same name in an insular area on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The island has a mild climate which makes it the perfect place to visit in summer, and especially in spring and autumn. Winter is not such a good time, as there are snowfalls, which, however, lend the city and island a certain charm.
The city is known internationally for its food, its martial arts, its religions and its culture and way of life. Tokyo is now one of the most influential cities and the birthplace of many new technologies and fashions that exist today.
Tourists visiting the city of Tokyo should not miss the opportunity to see the temple of Asakusa Kannon, Imperial Palace square, the Tokyo tower, the shopping district of Omotesando, the Oirentalo Bazaar and the district of Harajuku. Tokyo is also the starting point for many excursions to places such as Nikko, Mount Fuji or Nara, which is famous for the image of its giant Buddha. To obtain a complete idea of Japan, one should also visit Kyoto, Miyjajima and Oska, to admire all the wonders of this island, in which Tokyo is the mind and soul of the country.
