Tokyo is perhaps one of the most interesting cities on earth, and has long been on the bucket lists of seasoned travellers. Home to more than 13 million people, it is a sprawling, hectic metropolis full of towering skyscrapers, lightning-fast trains, questionable fashion, temples, geishas and sushi. Lots of sushi.
There are few places in the world that just have a ‘feeling’ about them, where as soon as you arrive you know you’re about to experience something special. This is what Kyoto is for many people, who flock there to see the breathtaking temples, centuries-old palaces and calming zen gardens.
