Tokyo Story

Tokyo with a metropolitan population of approximately 36 million people is the most populous city in the world.

According to Trip Advisor and its world city survey, Tokyo ranked first in "the best overall experience" category and also ranked first in the following categories: "helpfulness of locals", "nightlife", "shopping", "local public transportation",  and "cleanliness of streets".

In spite of its Godzilla size, Tokyo was ranked the third most livable large city in the world and has the most Michelin star restaurants of any city.

We ended our Japan trip in Tokyo and booked 5 nights at a hotel near the Ginza.  Our consensus from our experience - we would fully concur with the findings of the Trip Advisor survey.  We would also add the sense of public safety and cleanliness of public toilets to the list.

We only had enough time to see the area around the Ginza and Ropponji Hills District, two of about a dozen major hubs of the city.  The list of places to see and experience is almost endless.  But what we saw over the five days was a pretty exceptional.
