Shinjuku & West Tokyo
Shinjuku is a whole city within the city. Its breadth and scale are simply awesome – over three million people a day pass through the station alone. To the west is Nishi-Shinjuku, a planned district of soaring skyscrapers; to the east, the city's largest entertainment district.
Ginza & Tsukiji
Ginza is Tokyo's most polished neighbourhood, a fashion centre resplendent with department stores, art galleries and exclusive restaurants; the city's kabuki theatre, Kabuki-za, is here, too. A short walk away is a luxury commercial centre of a different sort: Tsukiji Market.
Lidabashi & Northwest Tokyo
Tokyo's western suburbs, linked by the iconic JR Chūō line, are anything but dull. Neighbourhoods such as Nakano, Kōenji, Ogikubo and Kichijōji are popular with locals, who appreciate the vintage mid-20th century look and bohemian spirit that set this area apart from downtown.
