Hunting for cheap flights to Tokyo from the USA? Well look no further than Globehunters!
World-renowned for its crazy sense of fun, packed streets and neon lights, Tokyo (??) is one of the most fascinating and diverse places on earth. Home to at least eight million people, Tokyo is not only forward-thinking and successful, it’s also hugely proud of its past. The perfect vacation for both the young and young at heart, energetic neighbourhood festivals are put on almost every day of the year. Indeed the city’s whole existence is wrapped up in fashion and technology, with the prevailing ethos of work hard, play harder.
Once you step back from the packed main roads, you’ll discover a fascinating warren of serene back alleys where traditional wooden dwellings are fronted by lovingly maintained trees and shrubs. Look hard enough, and you’ll soon find a wealth of temples and shrines that litter the old city, all for you to explore.
Thanks to its many centuries of coping with the daily needs of its population, Tokyo has become mightily adept at running like clockwork. Trains operate exactly to time and stop extremely regularly. Crime is virtually non-existent and similar to New York, shops, food outlets and everything else you could possible need for your vacation are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Tokyo’s fantastic wealth coupled with its general lack of planning restrictions have given architects a virtually clean slate on which to build the city. As part of that, Tokyo’s achingly chic bars, nightclubs and restaurants are truly a thing of the future, with cuisine to match. It stands to reason; Tokyo is an entertaining, addictive metropolis and somewhere you can get helplessly lost in just for the fun of it.
