The nation’s capital, the site of the 2020 Summer Olympics, and the most populous city in the world, there’s no shortage of places to see in things to do in Tokyo. While that means you’ll inevitable have to leave some things off your itinerary, it also means that there’s something for everyone.

Tokyo’s center, the 23 wards, combine some of the world’s busiest areas with remnants of old Japan; not far from Shibuya is the holy Meiji Jingu, while the 634-meter tall Tokyo SkyTree and the iconic Senso-ji in Asakusa are within walking distance of each other. Shinjuku and Roppongi are two vibrant nightlife spots, yet they’re a short train ride away from Ueno Zoo and the Tsukuji Fish Market.

Right in the middle of it all is the Imperial Palace, a popular jogging route. Beautiful nature in the Oku-Tama area and the Izu and Ogasawara Islands will make you forget that you’re still in Tokyo.
