5 Beautiful Landmarks in Japan

Tokyo is one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world. If you only have one day in Tokyo it is great to tick off some of the main sites on your Tokyo bucket list.

Tokyo has two airports that receive international flights, Narita and Haneda airports. Narita Airport is quite a bit farther away from central Tokyo so if possible fly into Haneda rather than Narita airport.

If you are going to spend the night in Tokyo I highly recommend staying in one of the city’s most central areas like Ginza. On my visit I stayed at the Keio Presso Inn Tokyo Station Yaesu.

Ginza and the Ginza Crosswalk

The Ginza crosswalk is often featured in movies and on tv as the ultimate place to demonstrate how crazy busy Tokyo can be. This is a great photo opportunity.

Sensoji Temple

Sensoji is the oldest temple in Tokyo and home to the statue of the holy Buddha.

Tokyo Fishmarket

If you plan to visit Toyosu market head there for breakfast rather than lunch. Apparently the quality of the fish at breakfast is superior to what is available at lunchtime.

Choose your Tokyo Tower

The highest point for observation is on Tokyo Skytree at 450 metres.

Tokyo Ramen Street

As you may imagine, this underground street inside Tokyo Station is decorated in a traditional style and filled with famous ramen shops.
