Tokyo is a metropolis that overwhelms you with its scale. In this multifaceted and diverse city, noisy streets with neon signs can be found side by side with peaceful gardens and tranquil ancient temples. Get ready for a whirlwind of modernity and tradition – Tokyo awaits!

The Japanese capital has it all, from cultural landmarks to huge shopping centers, from bars and clubs to relaxed seaside leisure. Ultramodern, mindblowing, unique and unusual, Tokyo is all of these things. No matter how many times you come back to this city, you will keep rediscovering it from a new angle.

The fastest and most convenient way to reach the Japanese capital is by flying. Aeroflot offers daily direct flights from Moscow (duration: about 10 hours), landing at Narita International Airport, 75km from the city centre.

The best way to save is by buying round-trip tickets. We recommend you book early to get the cheapest fares.

What to see

You can almost never go wrong when it comes to picking a time of year to visit.  Despite the fact that summer in Tokyo is hot and humid, it is the only season when you are officially allowed to go up Mount Fuji. With autumn come the typhoons, but by October warm, sunny days are back again, and nature sparkles with the incredible colours of the maples! The winter is dry, snowless and mild, with temperatures rarely if ever dropping below 0 Co. Spring would be the best season to come if not for the all-too-popular Hanami (sakura viewing) tradition. When locals with their families and friends come out to the parks to have picnics under blossoming cherry trees, it gets too crowded. Still, there are plenty of things to see in Tokyo, so you’ll never get bored, no matter what season you choose.

The majority of museums, ancient temples and memorials are concentrated in the Harajuku, Asakusa and Ueno districts, and the island of Odaiba offers the best examples of futuristic architecture. Tokyo’s Ginza has you covered for all things luxury; here, the world’s most expensive brands coexist peacefully with more traditional Japanese shops. Fashion and nightlife lovers will find what they are looking for in the Shibuya district.

To get a feel for Japan’s ancient history, take a stroll along the walls of the Tokyo Imperial Palace,  a whole complex of buildings from different eras, from medieval to modern, housing the private residences of the Imperial Family. You can only go inside during major holidays.

The must-see historical sites are the Imperial Palace East Garden, the walls of Edo Castle, the Nijubashi (literally ‘double bridge’) and Meganebashi (‘spectacles bridge’) Bridges, along with the Fushimi Yagura watchtower. Regular concerts featuring classical and traditional Japanese music are held at the Peach Blossom Music Hall.

Another noteworthy landmark is Senso-ji, the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo, which houses a statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy, found in the 7th century in the exact location where Senso-ji was later erected. Nowadays, you can see a collection of ancient religious books there, get your fortune told by a traditional Japanese oracle and buy some souvenirs in the temple shops. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to get acquainted with kabuki, a form of traditional Japanese theatre combining drama, music, singing and dancing. Elaborate makeup and colorful costumes play an important role. The Kabuki-za Theatre in the Ginza district is one of the city’s best theatres.

The Ghibli Museum is especially popular with younger tourists. Walking into the museum complex, you’re immediately immersed in the world of Japanese animation. You’ll also get a chance to take a peek at the office of Hayao Miyazaki, the studio’s lead director, and watch exclusive short films not available to the general public.
