The Two Sides of Tokyo: Where Old Meets New

Those who have never visited Tokyo often have the wrong idea about the city. Japan’s capital is widely regarded as one of the world’s most electrifying places: a pulsing neon-lit metropolis with cutting-edge street fashion, cacophonous video game parlours and hyper-modern architecture among the defining characteristics.  While these aspects are very definitely part of Tokyo’s make up, they only paint part of the picture. Once just a humble fishing village known as Edo, Tokyo’s journey to becoming one of the world’s largest cities has involved many twists and turns. One of the best ways to get a handle on all this history is to take a walking tour that encompasses the city’s myriad strands. Launched by a Tokyo-based Belgian, this itinerary uncovers experiences that are uniquely Japanese. Starting in the old-school enclave of Yanaka, the tour winds through beautiful Ueno Park before hitting Akihabara, an area famous as the city’s electronics hub and the spiritual home of manga and video game culture.
