The Pulse of Japan
Japan’s capital is a non-stop, buzzing 24-hour megapolis and a must for first-timers and repeat aficionados on the hunt for the city’s best and lesser-known perks and quirks.
A fusion of next-generation modernity grounded in traditional heritage is the real lure of this enigmatic city, which promises to entertain and enthrall all. While the iconic Scramble Crossing in Shibuya is a testament to the city’s exacting, engineered chaos and nearby Omote-sando and Harajuku shopping meccas lead all, Yoyogi Park, just a stone’s throw away, is a tranquil, urban-based antidote. The kaleidoscopic blaze of nighttime neon constantly dazzles and promises unrivaled nocturnal thrills, but numerous hidden gems of archaic serenity are always on hand to provide respite from Tokyo’s pulsating hullabaloo. And then, of course, there’s Akihabara — feel free to explore your inner “otaku,” although it might cost you. Get it?
