Tokyo is, obviously, a place that needs no introduction. Japan’s busy capital, also known as the Big Mikan, is a city that never sleeps, and a place that’s a combination of the ultramodern and the traditional. From temples, museums, parks and ancient buildings to neon-lit skyscrapers, delicious food, drinks, and nightlife, there is something for everyone here. There is the Meiji Shinto Shrine with its towering gate and surrounding woods, the Imperial Palace and its large gardens, classical art in the Tokyo National Museum, Akihabara (also called Electric Town) for shopping, Tokyo Disneyland in Chiba, the Tokyo Skytree, the Onjuku Beach, if you want to get out of the city for a day, and the Robot Restaurant, among other popular attractions. And the city is also famous for very cheap capsule hotels. Check out the best pod and capsule hotels in Tokyo, for females.
