  • A small, historically isolated island nation, Tokyo has had plenty of time to develop its own quirky take on cool things to do. Tokyo, the country's hub for everything entertaining, serves up a dazzling variety of things to do that can be offbeat or mainstream, traditional or modern, but always cool. Tsukiji Central Fish Market - Tokyo's lively, chaotic peddling paradise for everything aquatic and edible - is a Japanese icon, and a haven for fish foodies. Every summer Japan explodes with colors in the night sky, in the form of hanabi (fireworks). The ancient waters of the Sumida-gawa (Sumida River), running alongside Tokyo's historic Asakusa district, reflect the bursts of tens of thousands of fireworks on the last Saturday of July. Ameyoko is a vibrant, bustling area that sells all sorts of consumer perishables as well as shoes and apparel. If you want to indulge in the sci-fi side of Tokyo, head to Joypolis, a high-tech gaming arcade with thrills for kids, adults, and couples. Simulation games provide the majority of the action, so get behind the wheel of a full-sized rally car or go virtual hang gliding. From funky festivals to one-of-a-kind shopping opportunities, Tokyo defines cool things to do.
