Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, is also home to the Imperial Palace and the seat of Government and Parliament. In East-Central Honshu, the largest of Japan’s main islands, this heavily populated city is well worth exploring. One of the world’s most modern cities in terms of its infrastructure and design – due largely to the 1923 earthquake and the devastation of WWII – Tokyo also holds the title of the world’s most expensive city in which to live; fortunately, it’s also one of the easiest to get around thanks to its superb rail and subway networks. The cultural side of Tokyo is famous for its numerous things to do and top attractions.
