Welcome to my lovely hometown Tokyo.


Tokyo is a city without rival in the world. Standing on the cutting edge of the future it is a blend of high-technology and tradition. Everything about this city is so different that to try and describe Tokyo to a person who has never visited is almost impossible. For it is in almost every respect different from all other cities in the world, and is a city that you will never cease to learn about.


As the capital of the Nation Tokyo is the financial nerve center of Japan and the place where it is all happening in Asia. Having rebuilt itself from nothing, Tokyo is now one of the most expensive cities in the world and a world showcase for technology. From its roots as an imitator of other countries, it is now a world innovator in everything technological.

    I am going to Tokyo this summer, on a Monday and Tuesday. I know the best day to go to Harajuku is Sunday - I'm going to miss it! Will there still be costumed people there on those days?
