We all know Japan is one of the most powerful nations located in South East Asia who had the courage to stand-up against the mighty USSR, but we hardly knew that this small country has a lot of potential when it comes to tourism. Although Japan does not make many attempts to attract world travellers to its famous cities like Kyoto and Tokyo there are many travellers across the world who are interested in learning more about Japanese art, culture and their day to day lifestyle which makes them one of the unique personalities on planet earth.

When it comes to tourism in Tokyo there are more Japanese people from other parts of the Japan than international visitors. Hence, Tokyo earns a lot of tourism income through domestic tourism rather than international tourism. More than 400 million people from other parts of Japan travel to Tokyo every year compared to only four million international tourists who prefer to see the sights and sounds of Tokyo. One of the main reasons for this is the rising cost of the city.

Tokyo is undoubtedly the number one city when it comes to the cost of living. Another reason could be that most of the banners and information around Tokyo are written in Japanese scripture which makes it very difficult for an international tourist to communicate or ask any questions regarding the destination or culture.

However, Tokyo is packed with plenty of tourist attractions that you can visit. If you love seafood you should take a walk to the Tsukiji Fish Market which is considered to be one of the best and busiest fish markets in Japan. You should definitely check out tourist attractions such as Disney Resort and Dome City.

Both these places attract a lot of local and international tourists because of their popularity. The Disney Resort is the technologically advanced romantic garden where you can spend some quality time with your friends and family.

There are a lot of local restaurants and cafes around here where you can stop and enjoy Japanese cuisine along with other international food items. Hanayashiki Amusement Park is also one of the popular destinations where you can enjoy some of the best roller coasters and large Ferris wheel. If you want to take in some of the older buildings that make up Tokyo’s history then make sure you visit the Imperial Palace which was once the residence of the Emperor of Japan for more than a century.
