Where past meets future

Japan’s capital city is renowned for its unusual technology, vibrant architecture and tumultuous urban culture. It can seem overwhelming and wonderfully chaotic but when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, a soft beauty descends over the entire metropolis. At the heart of Tokyo is the Imperial Palace - home to Japanese Royalty and breathtaking regal gardens open to the public. Enjoy classical Japanese recreational culture at a sumo match or descend into the technological milieu that is Akihabara.
