Tokyo, Japan literally meaning 'eastern capital' is one of the world's most important urban centres. It is a major business and financial centre as well as the political capital of Japan. The city is well known for its highly modern skyscrapers and is world-famous for its crowded rush hours. Home to the world's most complex train system, obliged to cope with 4 or 5 million commuters a day, Tokyo is an extremely easy city to negotiate. Tokyo is vibrant and alive; attractions include the Japanese Imperial Palace (Kokyo), Tokyo Tower, Tokyo National Museum, Ginza shopping district and the Kabukiza theater, Roppongi Hills one of Tokyo's largest skyscrapers, Budokan and Tokyo Dome arenas, Kabuki-cho, The Rainbow Bridge and Yurikamome monorail, Akasaka Palace and Jingu Gaien Park, Meiji Shrine, Harajuku the hub of Japan's youth culture and Sensoji temple in Asakusa.
Tokyo is served by Narita Airport (NRT).
