City break in Tokyo. Active leisure ideas for Tokyo - attractions, recreation and nightlife

Tokyo When night comes to the city, Tokyo starts flashing with neon signs. The city is truly rich in various night time entertainments. The most popular bars and nightclubs are located in the Ginza district. It should be noted that prices in clubs of Ginza are among the highest ones in the city, but bars feature much more attractive prices. This is the reason why there are always so many tourists in bars. Almond café greets its guests until late in the evening. Here you can relax in romantic atmosphere and enjoy local delicacies.
Is it possible to find secret places in vibrant Tokyo that is always full of tourists? It’s possible if you know where to search. As a rule, foreign travelers pay little to nothing … Open
Shibuya district is also full of various attractive entertaining facilities. The majority of clubs and bars of the quarter are decorated in ethnic style. Each institution usually offers a unique entertainment program. Travellers with children will also find great entertainments in Tokyo. You should certainly visit Tokyo Disneyland, which has become a favorite vacation spot for both children and adults right after its opening. Large choice of attractions, playrooms, toy shops and cafes – this is a real piece of fairytale that you will not want to leave.
Tokyo can be safely called one of the most famous cities in the world, along with New York, Paris, London and Hong Kong. Many tourists dream to visit the Japanese capital. If you are tired of usual excursions and desire to see something really special, then visit the Tsukiji Fish Market. Yes, you heard right! Tsukiji is not just a market; it's a gigantic food court with a great selection of the freshest seafood and fish. The main entertainment at Tsukiji is a tuna auction. Visiting the auction is free of charge, but the number of places for tourists is limited and the place in the queue must be booked in advance, no later than 4:30 in the morning. After the auction, wander around the market, appreciate the variety of marine life and definitely have breakfast or lunch in one of the Tsukiji sushi bars. The restaurants here close at 1:30 pm.

The luxurious The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo is a true landmark of the city. It is open in the highest skyscraper in Tokyo. The hotel has more than 200 guest rooms in the 54-storey building, and … Open
If you are not afraid of height and desire to feel adrenaline rush in the veins, hurry to visit the Palette Town Wheel in Tokyo, which is considered one of the highest on the planet. The Ferry Wheel raises the bravest on the height of 115 meters for a few minutes. This grandiose attraction is located on the artificial Odaiba Island in the Tokyo Bay. The wheel is famous for its dizzying views on the city, ultramodern skyscrapers, Rainbow Bridge and smooth curves of multi-tier interchanges. In the evening, the Giant Ski Wheel looks particularly expressive: the giant wheel is highlighted by colored lights and literally mesmerizes passers-by. The Asakusa area is the special place of entertainment, temples, ancient houses and shopping streets. In fact, this is the biggest trap for tourists in Tokyo. Tourists here can manage to get to the hotel broke, without buying any necessary souvenirs. In case you do not suffer from the shopaholism attacks, then there are all chances to go broke on a rickshaw. So if you decide to visit the Hanayashiki Park, Thunder Gate or Shinto Shrine of Imado Shrine, we recommend using a minibus in the form of a panda. The panda bus departs from the information center "Asakusa Kanko Emaki".
