5 Reasons To Visit Tokyo

Reasons to Visit Japan

Reasons to Visit Japan

Japan was recently named by Lonely Planet as one of the ‘Top 10 Best Value Destinations for 2012’, thanks to its affordable accommodation, and its huge number of free tourist attractions, meaning that there has never been a better time to visit the country, or its capital city.

Even more of a reason to visit is that Scandinavian Airlines, Europe’s most punctual airline, are now offering great discounts on all fares to Tokyo.

If you fancy visiting Tokyo, you can do so from just €857pp return with SAS.

Still not convinced? Then take a look at our top 5 reasons to visit Tokyo this year:

Tokyo Skytree

This architectural marvel is the world’s tallest tower and Japan’s biggest new landmark. High-speed elevators transfer tourists up to the observation decks of the 634-metre tower (2,080-foot), where they can admire the Tokyo skyline.

Tsukiji Fish Market

This is one of the world’s largest and busiest fish markets, and is home to more than 1,000 bustling food establishments. Go on your own or take a guided tour.

Golden Gai District

A modern wonder tucked away in a corner of the giant centre of commerce and entertainment that is Shinjuku, this area is home to over 200 tiny bars. You may have to choose your friends wisely though, as some bars only hold five people.


Tokyo is home to over 88,000 restaurants and has been awarded more Michelin stars than any other city in the world. One way to decide where to dine is by letting the time of day influence you – areas well-known for shopping are better for eating out during the day while parts of the city with a livelier nightlife are better at night.

Free attractions

If you plan on heading to Tokyo on a budget then it is still possible to see the sights as many attractions come without a price tag. Temples, botanic gardens, and markets are mostly all free to enter.
