Tokyo Metropolita Information and Advice.
Walking Tour Courses in Tokyo.
There are many ways to see Tokyo as it is a huge metropolis with a population
of nearly 12 million where older traditions and newer fashions have been
interacting harmoniously for nearly four centuries.
One of the most recommendable ways, however, is to venture forth into the
streets on your own so that you may feel first-hand the pulse of one of the world's
most bustling cities.
Given herein are several recommended walking tours of Tokyo.
The Asakusa Area
This walking course enables you to catch aglimpse of the unique life-style
of the common folk of Tokyo's “downtown” area where the “old Edo” still exists
and things are steeped in tradition.
Asakusa is a district lying on the banks of Sumida River to the east of Ueno, with
Asakusa Kannon Temple as its focal point. It formed one of the largest downtown
amusement centers in the city with a large number of movie houses, theaters
and other pleasure facilities in addition to numerous restauants.
Sensoji Temle（浅草寺）,or more popularly known as Asakusa Kannon Temple, is
named after the Kannon or Goddess of Mercy to whom the tall main hall is dedicated.
This temple is said to have been founded in the 7th century by three fishermen,
who discovered in their nets one day a tiny image of Kannon only 5 cm in height.
The Ｓhinjuku Area
Shinjuku is a fast developing shopping and amusement quarter, and is one of
Tokyo's largest commuter terminals. There are two Shinjuku, East and West.
Bussling East Shinjuku is a haven for shopping, people-watching, movie-going,
eating and drinking.
West Shinjuku, on the other hand, is exceptional for strolling along wide
boulevards and Tokyo-viewing from the tops of the soaring skyscrapers.
Shinjuku's Skyscraper (高層ﾋﾞﾙ街） is a cluster of ultramodern high-rise buildings from
25 to 55 stories in height.
Some are moderm hotels and others are office buildings the upper floors of which
contain a number of restaurants featuring superb views.
One of these is the Tokyo Metropolitan Govermment Bldg.(都庁）；its observatory
on the 45th floor (202m.)
Kabukicho(歌舞伎町）,is an amusement district for the young and adventuros,
packed with many eateries, bars, game centers and movie houses.
From Shiba Area to Roppongi
Tokyo Tower（東京タワ−）, a 333-m-high independent steel tower, is both a telecasting
and an entertainment center, housing various exhibition halls, shops and restaurants.
A grand view of the entire city of Tokyo and Tokyo Bay can be obtained from the
observation platforms. Admission: ￥820 to the 150-m-high Grand Observation Platform;
another ￥600 to the 250-m-high Special Observation Platform.
Roppongi（六本木）, centered on the Roppongi Intersection, is a town catering especially
to the young and adventurous. Snack shops and bars are open into the wee hours,
drawing many night owls.
Ark Hills（ア−クヒルズ）, an area with skyscrapers such as Ark Mori Bldg. and ANA Hotel.
Santory Hall(concert hall) is located in this new business center as well.
From Shibuya's Koen-dori to Meiji Shrine
Shibuya and Harajuku combine to form one of Tokyo's most fashionable districta,
teeming with boutques and restaurants, and favored by younger Tokyoites.
Koen-dori（公園通り）, originating where the bronze statue of the faithful dog
Chuken Hachiko stands, in fron of the Northwest Exit of Shibuya Station, is one of
Tokyo's most fashionable streets, lined on either side with boutiques and appealing
restaurants and often frequented by younger Tokyoites dressed more casually.
Meiji Shrine(明治神宮）, standing in an extensive thickly-wooded parkland, is dedicated
to Emperor Meiji and his Consort. The sanctuary is a particularly fine example of Shinto
architecture. Open daily, from dawn to sunset.
Yoyogi Park(代々木公園), the former site of Tokyo Olympic Village, is a quiet
thickly-wooded park with a wild bird sanctuary, a children's playground and a cycling course.
Takeshita-dori Street（竹下通り）, energetic street lined with many boutiques,
coffee shops restaurants. “New teenage fashions” originate here and always attract
a great many young boys and girls, who can be seen walking along this street
eating ice cream or crepe in the typical “Harajuku” style.
The subways and trains shut down around midnight in Tokyo, and there's always
a mad rush to make the last train.
There's nothing like taking the shinkansen, or bullet train. I think it's better
than flying. It's definitely more comfortable -not to mention a lot safer!
