Time travel is possible via the things to do in Tokyo. Whether it's the futuristic displays of Shinjuku or the old-fashioned marketplace dynamics of the Tsukiji Fish Market at 5am, Tokyo invites visitors to experience a little something from every era in history and different attractions. 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. If you see just one temple in Tokyo, make it Senso-Ji Temple. Settled in Tokyo's historic heart, Asakusa, this impressive, colorful temple feels larger than life. Constructed in 1958, Tokyo Tower soars 333 meters, 13 meters higher than the Eiffel Tower. Ever heard of the Meiji Restoration? Tokyo's most important shrine, Meiji-jingu, honors the man who opened Tokyo and Japan to Western culture. This is just a small sample of the things to do in this brilliant city.
