A destination to discover Japanese ancestral culture
Located in the Asakusa district, on the banks of the Sumida River, this temple dedicated to the goddess Kannon is part of a vast Buddhist complex. It is the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo and welcomes 30 million people each year. You enter this sanctuary through an impressive gate and then you have to go through a crowded alley lined with shops before reaching the temple. You can then visit the "Goddess' Room", the 5-storey pagoda on the left of the temple as well as the small Japanese garden which is a real haven of peace with its pond filled with carp.The Edo-Tokyo Museum
This museum presents the history and culture of Tokyo. It consists of 2 zones: the first relating the period from the creation of Edo to the Meiji Revolution and the second telling the modern history of the city. All collections are presented in a creative and playful way. During your visit, you will be able to see a life-size reconstruction of the famous Nihonbashi business district, models illustrating the lives of samurai, rickshaws, a reconstruction of the Nihonbashi bridge that served as a starting point for all the roads in Japan leaving Edo, etc.
Called Edo until the fall of the shogunate in 1868, the Japanese capital was renamed Tokyo, meaning "Eastern Capital" to mark a new era.
Top 5 things to do
A kind of fortress in the heart of the city, the Imperial Palace, surrounded by its original moats, welcomes the emperor and his family. In addition to the moat, the original building still contains the ramparts and the imperial garden. Destroyed by fire and then razed to the ground during the Second World War, the palace was rebuilt in 1968. Feel free to stroll through the traditional gardens, the most enchanting being undoubtedly the oriental garden.2. Strolling around Omotesando
This avenue, which is more than a kilometre long, is known as the "Champs-Élysées de Tokyo". It is lined with shops of all kinds, including luxury shops and more picturesque shops. There is also the Oriental Bazaar which is one of the most important souvenir shops in Tokyo. A little further away, at Yoyogi Park, we find Snoopy Town, which sells many items bearing the effigy of the famous dog.3. Discover Akihabara
Once known for its household appliance shops, the Akihabara district has now been transformed into a major electronics bazaar. A mecca for Otaku culture (a young manga, video game and figurine enthusiast), the places dedicated to the manga planet coexist with transistors and household robots. The district has thus become a huge virtual playground.4. Enjoy the nightlife in Roppongi
The Roppongi district is known for its Roppongi Hills towers and its impressive concentration of clubs and bars. Some bars are built in the Japanese tradition and are stacked on several floors. Others are built according to the Western model. The neighbourhood is very popular with foreigners, especially the American military, and is known to be safer than Kabukichô, Tokyo's other nightlife district.5. Walking in the park of Ueno
It is the green lung of East Tokyo and provides a cool break, especially during the summer. You can stroll through the cherry-lined alleys listening to the cicadas singing and meeting some Japanese people dressed in traditional clothes. In early fall, head to Shinobazu Pond to admire the superb spectacle of lotus blossoming.
