Perhaps London’s equivalent as the most famous city in Asia, Tokyo has always been one of the most expensive cities in the world. Japan’s capital is world-renowned for its cutting-edge technology, from the latest consumer gadgets to its very sophisticated subways and rail systems. The country also boasts of its famed exotic cuisine and weird attractions.
Tokyo was founded in 1457 and was first called Edo, but the city was established in 1869. Today, the Japanese capital is home to more than 13 million inhabitants.
Tokyo is one of perhaps a handful of cities that has a mall solely dedicated to peculiar things.
Living in the capital of the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’ does not come cheap, as housing alone can cost as much as $4,000, while a bottle of Martini can be as pricey as $18,000. But despite the costly living in Tokyo, tourists have a million reasons to enjoy the city.
Although Tokyo is famous for state-of-the-art technology, traditional Japanese culture is well-preserved in the busy city. From the traditional Japanese food to the Japanese Imperial Palace, traces of the country’s age-old culture can be seen almost everywhere in the city. <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-41" src="http://www.propertyhospitality.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Tokyo-Main-Image viagra en genericos.jpg” alt=”Tokyo-Main-Image” width=”2200″ height=”1294″ srcset=”http://www.propertyhospitality.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Tokyo-Main-Image.jpg 2200w, http://www.propertyhospitality.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Tokyo-Main-Image-300×176.jpg 300w, http://www.propertyhospitality.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Tokyo-Main-Image-1024×602.jpg 1024w, http://www.propertyhospitality.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Tokyo-Main-Image-150×88.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 2200px) 100vw, 2200px” />
Some of the best things to experience while in Tokyo include a climb at the city’s Sky Tree which is currently the tallest tower in the world; a visit at the Tsukiji Fish Market which is the biggest in the world; and a visit to the Imperial Palace, where, if you’re lucky enough, you might find yourself being greeted by the emperor himself.
