A Fast-Paced Break in Tokyo

Wed.02.Jul.2008 - 16:00 UTC

Are you seeking an exciting new holiday destination? Do you want a more fast-paced city break than your average Euro-trip? Then Tokyo is the right place for you.

One of the most popular cities in the world, Tokyo is the unique and vibrant capital of Japan, and with a population of over 12 million people it’s also one of the busiest. The city’s colourful fusion of both ultra-modern and ultra-traditional cultures, the streets and hubs packed at all hours with shoppers, workers, and tourists, and the large scale-downtown architecture decorated with countless flashing neon lights and video screens provide an exhilarating assault on the senses. Exciting stuff of course, but Tokyo’s charms could just as easily be a bit of a culture shock for a Brit visiting for the first-time.

Luckily we have Kylie Clare from the Japanese National Tourist Office live in the studio to provide some helpful hints and tips on how to get the most of your city break in Tokyo. She’ll be offering advice on how to find the best shops, the places to go for those wild nights out, and the top sightseeing spots to visit during the day. As well as pointing you towards the numerous attractions you won’t want to miss Kylie will also offer practical advise for the Brit abroad on subjects such as travel, cost, and where to stay.
