Travel Meets Fashion: Tokyo

Japan’s busy capital is a one-of-a kind fusion of the ultramodern and the traditional, where the horizon is painted with neon-lit skyscrapers next to magnificent historic temples. Take a stroll through the Imperial Palace at day and explore the cozy Japanese-style pubs called izakaya, scattered throughout the city at night.

A small walk can take you from the old, narrow streets of the Asakusa district containing shops, women in kimonos and the 7th-century Sensō-ji Buddhist temple to Roppongi with lively nightclubs and karaoke bars, and Akihabara with its high-tech electronics stores. Offering unlimited world-famous food choices, Tokyo is the paradise for the food fanatics looking for sushi or the best ramen you could ask for!

Tokyo boasts of some the finest art in the world with more than 40 museums and hundreds of art galleries. From the classics such as the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai to the modern Manga and modern street sculptures, Tokyo has the art scene covered. The city’s many museums offer exhibits ranging from classical art (in the Tokyo National Museum) to a reconstructed kabuki theater (in the Edo-Tokyo Museum).

If you go to Tokyo, I think it becomes very obvious that there’s this almost seamless mixture of popular culture and Japanese traditional culture.
