Fascinating, futuristic Tokyo
All eyes are on Japan’s capital as the host to hundreds of gold medal hopefuls, but that’s not the only reason it’s a must-see destination. The sprawling city of neighborhoods, each with their own personalities, offers endless discoveries. “You’ll go from a peaceful temple to something called a robot restaurant,” says Go Ahead staffer Adam. “There’s always a surprise.” Visit this year to soak up the Olympic fever in one of Japan’s most energetic—and eclectic—cities.
“Tokyo offers something very rare: the opportunity to experience centuries-old elegance and tradition right alongside the vibrant technological modernity. Segueing from inward meditativeness to outward wonderment makes Tokyo impossible to pass up.”
