Tokyo City Guide

Updated November 9, 2019 | by Chad A. Thiele, 23 year veteran of Tokyo.

Tokyo is an incredible place to visit.

You already knew that though. That’s why you’re here.

But Tokyo also has its fair share of difficulties though. The language barrier, cultural differences, crowds, etc.

But don’t let that stop you, Tokyo is surprisingly accessible despite the steep language barrier — and things are improving as we speak.

This guide will help you make the most of your time in Tokyo by showing you things to see, do, and eat. I’ll also explain the parts of Tokyo, getting around, apps, and more.

What are you interested in?

I won’t pretend to know at what stage you are in your planning, or what you’re looking for in Tokyo. So I broke this guide up into parts I think you’d be most interested in.

There’s a lot to planning a trip to Tokyo so expect a lot more to be added to this guide over time.

More to Come

I definitely want to get more into the travel side.

I’ve lived here 23 years so I tend to focus on what’s going on here and less with how to get around and what to expect while here.

I’m planning things around traveling from the airports, using Google Maps while in Japan, apps to help you while here, how to get WiFi, and so much more.

Have Some Ideas?

I’m open to hearing what you think too. Hit up the contact page if you’ve got some ideas. I’m constantly improving this guide and your ideas and comments help — and keep me motivated.

Enjoy Tokyo!
