Whether your interests are art, music, parks, shopping, or just strolling and riding the rails, there’s plenty of things to do in Tokyo, a city of 13 million (37 million in the greater metropolis) who are regularly entertained.
Beyond icons like the Imperial Palace, Tsukiji Fish Market, and the Temple of Senso-ji, the Meiji Shrine is a historic landmark popular among visitors and locals alike. The Mori Art Museum and Hara Museum of Contemporary Art are great jumping off points for what to do in Tokyo. In a city this dynamic, there are always new things to see and do, like exploring hip neighborhoods like Shimokitazawa with its hipster vibe and cool bars.
One of the greatest pleasures here is simply exploring the city on foot, not only wandering into Buddhist temples but also into funky boutiques, noodle shops, and farther-flung residential neighborhoods. Fashion is a huge part of the culture, and you can find some of the more cutting-edge getups on Harajuku's Takeshita Street, where people play dress up to a delightful extreme. T+L’s Tokyo travel guide will ensure you’re up-to-date and can’t ever be bored.
