The Neighborhoods of Tokyo

Technically, Tokyo is a collection of wards, cities, districts, and all those fancy words. But I like to think of them all as neighborhoods of Tokyo.

It’s easier and your mind is already full of how to navigate, what to see, food to try, and the language barrier — no need to worry about the technicalities of ward vs district.

There are far more than what you see below. More to come.
