Tokyo is packed with things to do and see. Many of Tokyo’s biggest attractions are historic and religious. You can visit the Kotoku-in Temple the to see the Great Buddha of Kamakura. Having stood for centuries, the Great Buddha is one of Japan’s most iconic images. Another of Tokyo’s most popular destinations is the Sensoji Temple. Founded in the year 645, this temple has been around longer than any other in Tokyo. Nearby is one of Tokyo’s most famous Shinto shrines, the Asakusa Shrine. Another one of the most important Shinto shrines is Meiji Shrine, which honors the Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. Tokyo is also home to plenty of modern buildings with awe-inspiring architecture. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building is one of the more interesting skyscrapers. On a clear day, you can see Mount Fuji from the observation deck. Tokyo Tower, modeled after the Eiffel Tower, doesn’t offer the best view in town anymore, but it has been an important landmark since 1958. Sushi lovers should pay a visit to Tsukiji Fish Market. This is the largest wholesale seafood market in the world, and the restaurants in the market serve the freshest sushi you’ll ever eat. Get away from the bustling city in Ueno Park, one of the oldest public parks in Japan. A number of attractions and facilities can be found in the park, including Ueno Zoo. Tokyo can be overwhelming, so come with a plan and give yourself time to appreciate the places you visit.
