Description:

Tokyo, contrary to popular belief, is more than Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku girls, cute cartoon characters with big eyes, and that big walking dinosaur in Lost in Translation. It was rebuilt after the firebombing in WWII, a heady mix of industrial architecture meeting ancient wooden shrines.

The city is a never-ending concrete jungle, separated into 23 special wards. The greater Tokyo area, however, also includes several towns and villages to the west of Tokyo, also known as the Tama area. With the world’s largest metropolitan population of 35 million, this is definitely not a place to be if you like personal space or alone time.

Each of the wards and cities in the Tama area has its own particular charm: Shinjuku is known for its red-light district and gang activity, Shibuya for its shopping and Lost in Translation fame, Harajuku for its…girls, and Roppongi for its foreign clubbers, to name a few. Dive bars, counter-culture youth, knick-knack shops, and “purikura” machines abound, but if you’re missing the rest of the world you can also find such attractions as the Eiffel tower (except taller, and…orange), the Statue of Liberty, and Disneyland.
