Located on the eastern edge of Honshu island in the heart of Japan's main island, Tokyo is one of the most populous cities in the world. It's an iconic destination for tourists seeking an unforgettable cultural experience.

One must-see is Meiji Shrine - a stunning Shinto shrine dedicated to Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken that dates back to 1920s. Another can't-miss spot is Sensoji Temple - also known as Asakusa Kannon Temple - which was constructed in 628 AD and has some incredible architecture including a five-story pagoda.

What makes Tokyo even more interesting are its unique historical facts. For instance, it served as Japan's imperial capital from 1603 until 1868 when it was moved to Kyoto. An important part of Japanese culture and history, Tokyo has played a major role in shaping not only Japan but also Asia at large for centuries now!
