The Hub of Japan’s Development: Experiencing the Best of TokyoTerohan Nula July 3, 2015 0 COMMENTS
Tokyo bears the proud distinction of being the world’s most densely populated city. It’s no wonder that so many people have decided to take up residence in this advanced city. Due to the steady march of progress in the Land of the Rising Sun, its capital has become a monumental hub for culture, shopping, art, food and entertainment.
Interestingly, Tokyo manages to balance the old (historical structures and places) and the new (Tokyo condos and skyscrapers). This mix offers a one-of-a-kind experience for tourists and locals alike.
Apart from its cultural development, the city is home to exciting sights to the delight of those who live in the metropolitan area.
1. Tokyo Dome – Known as the “Big Egg” in the city, the Tokyo Dome has an impressive seating capacity of 55,000. This is among the world’s biggest roofed baseball stadiums. It is famous for its gigantic white Teflon roof, which is supported by air. Big games and concerts are not the only things that attract people to this landmark, though. Outside the dome is an amusement park with exciting rides for tourists and residents of all ages.
2. Tokyo Disneyland – It’s hard to think about Tokyo without the gigantic castle where Mickey Mouse and his friends reside. Known as the Happiest Place on Earth, it houses thrilling rides, colourful characters and attractions pulled straight from a storybook. Tokyo Disneyland is much more than an amusement park; it’s a fairy tale kingdom brought to life, putting a smile on the faces of approximately 25 million visitors every year.
3. Tokyo Tower – This lovely white and orange tower is located in Minato Ward. Tokyo Tower serves as a tribute to the Eiffel Tower, the tallest self-supporting steel tower in the world. It is certainly a sight to behold—just ask the 2.5 million tourists who flock to the tower yearly.
Whether you were born in Tokyo or simply had the chance to take a trip there, it’s hard to downplay its strong appeal to tourists and potential investors. Japan’s capital makes other progressive cities pale in comparison.
