 We visited Tokyo as part of a whirlwind tour of Japan in 2016.

There are 47 neighbourhoods in Japan and each has its own unique, distinctive charateristics.

From the neon highrise and zany advertising of Shinjuku to the cutesy teen mecca of Harajuku.

There's the gorgeous traditional temple at Asakusa and a sensory electronic overload of Akihabara.

We spent a night in a crazy plastic capsule hotel, visited the serene beauty of Nikko National Park, necked Sake like a local and people watched in Piss Alley.

Tokyo is a wonderland, a heady mix of technological optimism and beautiful traditions.

From the oddly netured sexuality of Maid Cafes, to the endless rows of sleeping metro commuters, school girls on swings with samari swords to Hello Kitty roadworks, it's a blend of the sublime and the ridiculous.

If your experience is anything like ours you'll feel both alien yet strangely at home. When can I go back!!!
