Modern yet old-fashioned, understated yet wacky, pretty much sums up Tokyo’s culture and its sights. The allure of Japan, for me, lies in its queer mix of foreign knick-knacks from slick high-tech gadgets to cutesy cartoonish figures. That, and not to mention the delicious food (think fresh sushi for breakfast!) and unparalleled mass transit system makes for a noteworthy Tokyo experience.
On this premier rendition of our “Travel Frames” series, let your adventurous spirit flutter through the shrines and ancient temples that old Japan has scattered amidst the towering skyscrapers and swanky shopping districts. Stroll through the picturesque parks lined with gorgeous Spring blossoms and slurp your way into the heart of the rising sun at cosy, hole-in-the-wall Ramen cafes.
