Tokyo

           

 

Currency: Japanese Yen (¥)            Population: 12.7 million            Price of Food: From £9 for Sushi

Famous For:
Sushi, fashion, technology, Tokyo Tower, The Imperial Palace and Roppongi Hills shopping centre.

Useful Info:
A day out in Harajuku to people watch in some cafes is a great way to see the many different kinds of Gothic Lolita fashions worn by the Japanese.

Useless Info:
In Tokyo, a bicycle is faster than a car for most trips of less than 50 minutes.

Local Eats:
Tokyo has many sushi bars and restaurants but has also embraced the range and virtuosity of Italian cuisine; chances are good that the finer trattorias here will measure up to even Tuscan standards. Indian food is also consistently good — and relatively inexpensive.
