CITY DESCRIPTIONS

The sheer size of Tokyo is overwhelming. Its greatest asset are its people, so polite and so helpful. The pace of the city is fast, real fast. The bullet train is a prime example. And the volume of people (over 12,000,000) going about their daily business is impressive. Read this Worldroom.com Fast Facts page to familiarize yourself about Tokyo and Japan.   

There are many excellent restuarants and specialty food shops. Street vendors are everywhere from the Ginza to Asakusa. The transportation system is efficient, and modern. Hotels are very comfortable and expensive. The night life attracts entertainers from all over the world. Shopping is a national pastime, and to find your pre-conceived image of Japan, check out the National Museum of Art, or walk down the crooked streets of Tokyo's many little townships. See this travel guide of all Japanese cities.
