    DESCRIPTION

    DESCRIPTION

    Formerly a small fishing village, known as Edo, Tokyo did not become Japan’s political epicentre until 1868, when it was renamed, after the arrival of the Emperor Meiji. Today it comprises 27 prefectures, with a population of 13 million. A city of contrasts – uniting past and present, Tokyo combines frenetic energy with a sense of harmony. Packed trains, cutting-edge architecture and futuristic technology are juxtaposed with ancient shrines, such as the city’s oldest temple in Asakusa, wooden houses, and surprisingly many gardens. The Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is a must-visit, whether or not it is “sakura” or cherry blossom season.
