There are two completely different sides to the Japanese capital, Tokyo. On the one hand it is an energetic, innovative, crowded mega city. On the other hand, Tokyo is a highly traditional city.
The Tokyo of the vast Akihabara district is where the modern culture of this metropolis can be observed and experienced, where gadget-fans come for the latest electronics. It is also the Tokyo of the Harajuku area where young fashionistas like to be seen in their eye-catching clothes. But just as typical for Tokyo are the city of the Kabuki theater near Higashi Ginza Station, of spring picnics under cherry blossom trees, and of sushi restaurants at the central fish market. Somehow, these contrasting cities manage to merge and complement each other perfectly.
