Tokyo First Impressions

First-time visitors often say that everything they’ve heard about Tokyo is true:

• Strangers on the street are polite, friendly and helpful, even if they don’t speak English. The service in stores and restaurants is warm and sincere.

• Tokyo is unbelievably clean, wherever you look. The city feels safe, comfortable and family-friendly.

• It’s easy and inexpensive to get around, thanks to the brilliantly organised subway and train system. Signs are in both English and Japanese. Tokyo taxis tend to be more expensive. To guarantee a smooth trip, it’s best to have the address of your destination written down in Japanese.
