As Japan’s capital, Tokyo is one of the most vibrant places in the world and is also great for tourists. Try out some of the local cuisine in one of the many restaurants or stop off at the Museum of Contemporary Art to get a taste of modern Tokyo’s art scene. To take a break from the vibrant city, visitors can stop by at some beautiful Japanese gardens and enjoy the tranquillity. There are plenty to choose from including the Tonogayato Gardens and the Showakinen Park Gardens, but all usually include a selection of flowers, plants and native trees as well as a beautiful pond. Some even have a tea house where you can stop for a break. While you enjoy the sights of Tokyo, ensure that you put safety at the top of your priority list no matter where you are.
Keep safe when visiting Tokyo
Tokyo is a bustling city and is filled with tourists so it pays to be safe when seeing the sights. It is generally seen as a safe city to visit but the usual pickpockets and thieves can be found in some areas and will take advantage of travellers. Try not to make it too obvious you are a sightseer and try not to carry too much money. Travel on the underground can be extremely busy, particularly during rush hour which can cause accidents to unwitting travellers. It is also wise to steer clear of the underground if you are alone at night. Alternatively, you may have an accident before you arrive or in the hotel in which case your travel provider can be held responsible.
