Tokyo

Sights both ancient and modern

Position map

Tokyo probably does not even appear on the global map of tourist destinations, and perhaps most visitors see only the drab and functional concrete superficiality as they rush on their way to Kyoto. Yet there are plenty of places to see in Tokyo, both old and new. This page is not strictly limited to the city of Tokyo, but encompasses the whole metropolitan area around Tokyo Bay.

Some of the descriptions of Tokyo Tower are out of date, since the completion of "Tokyo Sky Tree", almost twice the height, at 634 metres. (The "Tree" seems to mean "Christmas tree".)

2542: Tokyo Station lit up

Tokyo station has been recently renovated, and presents an imposing red-brick frontage, but over the last decade or so it has also gained a backdrop of huge office buildings. This makes a challenging and rather different puzzle.
