Tokyo is most famous for hosting AnimeJapan, the Tokyo International Anime Fair, the Komiket, and the Reiteisai anime fairs, but it's also home to an impressive business district. The Tokyo Big Sight is one of the largest convention centres in the world, and features one of the most impressively designed buildings as well. Visitors can stay in any of the nearby Tokyo hotels including Nikko Tokyo, Sunroute Ariake, and Tokyo Bay Ariake.
Tokyo is known for an impressive array of fine dining featuring chefs and cuisines from around the world with more than 320 Michelin stars awarded. While there are hundreds of choices of restaurants and Tokyo hotels that serve food, some of the best include the Sushi Takumi Okabe, Kondo, Owan, and Rokukakutei. Visitors should also sample the street food and the cafes to get a real idea of Tokyo's cuisine.
Tokyo is the electronics capital of Japan but its shops and markets offer something for everyone. Shinjuki, which centres on the train station of the same name, is the place to be for anyone looking for budget electronics, fashion stores, and outlets. Ginza offers art, major electronics, and high-end brands. Jimbocho is a haven of books, both English and Japanese, although the latter are more common.
Tokyo has been described as the city that never sleeps, but in addition to the nightlife, visitors can check out an array of cultural and historically significant spots. The Tsukiji fish market is considered a must for tourists who aren't queasy, while the Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi Park, Shinjuku Gyoen National Gardens, and Shibuya Crossing are more appropriate for everyone else.
While it could be said that the sport of choice in Tokyo is karaoke, and no visitor should leave without trying it, they are also known for baseball, swimming, and of course, sumo wrestling. Amateur sumo matches can be seen throughout the city, but tourists can visit the Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo arena to see the professionals.
