Tokyo Fantasy Image

Over 13 million people (30 million including the surrounding areas) people can’t be wrong! Ask any Tokyoite what their favourite city in Japan is and they will always tell you that it’s Tokyo. But why do so many people believe Tokyo is so utterly aesome, especially since it’s one of the most over-crowded cities in the world? Tokyo has the least amount of personal space of any modern metropolitan city, it’s incredibly expensive to live in, and has its fair share of earthquakes, which leave most residents a bit shaken, though not stirred.

Despite these negatives, however, hundreds of thousands of people still flock to Japan’s capital every year to seek fame, adventure, and fortune in Japan’s Capital. It was also recently chosen to host the 2020 Olympics. Why is Tokyo so popular? Well, let’s take a look at what makes this city truly unique.


The sheer diversity on offer is second to none in Japan. There’s so much to love about this enigmatic city from the prevalent subcultures, such as the gothic lolitas, the cosplay lovers, and the Harajuku Kids, to the incredibly varied nightlife, all the way to the plethora of restaurants, which will satisfy even the finickiest of foodies; the capital of Japan has something to offer for anyone and any taste.

Let’s take a look at some of the other highlights you can look forward to in this epic city, on or before the big event in 2020.

That’s just a tiny sample of what’s possible in Tokyo. With so much to offer, and every whim and fantasy available for the taking, it can be a bit overwhelming at first, but will quickly grow on you the more time you spend there.

Tokyo is a huge playground for adults whose every fantasy can and will be catered to. A true Mecca of diversity in a homogenous culture.
So, is it any surprise that Tokyo was chosen as the next host for the 2020 Olympics, and recently rose to the top of the list of the most livable cities in the world by Monocle Magazine, as well as the best destination for global travellers?

If you still doubt that it was the right choice, hop on a plane to Japan and find out for yourselves – You won’t be disappointed by the metropolitan craziness that only Tokyo can offer.
See you in or before 2020!
