What to do in Tokyo

Tokyo, a must see destination

If you are up for a unique, wild and unforgettable experience, Tokyo is the place for you. Tokyo is so different from most places in the world and we highly recommend a visit on your next ski holiday to Japan. It’s fusion of old and new, tradition verse freakishly futuristic plus tolerance and impulsiveness reveals a city that is like no other.


In Tokyo, you will find it busy, crowded, modern and alive yet at the same time it is calm, ordered, ancient and peaceful. You’ll find ultra-modern, neon lit sky-scrappers next to serene temples hundreds of years old.


With more Michelin star restaurants than anywhere else, there is no surprise that this is a place to set the taste buds on fire. Do yourself a favour and add a few nights in Tokyo during this coming Japan skiing season.
