Differences of Tokyo from other cities
Most tourists who visit Japan not only visit Tokyo but also other areas such as Osaka, Kyoto, or Kyushu. So we would like to introduce how Tokyo is different from other cities. First of all, Tokyo has several distinct areas and each known for its distinct atmosphere, feature, and culture. You should know that it takes days to experience and enjoy every detail of each area in Tokyo. One day or two days in Tokyo won't be enough. Compared to the Kansai or Kyushu area, Tokyo doesn't have much famous local food such as Okonomiyaki or Takoyaki for Kansai or Motsunabe (hotpot) in Kyushu. But that’s because Tokyo has everything. Every delicious food, famous cafes, restaurants, clothing brand, or any shops gather in Tokyo from all around Japan, and even from overseas. If you like animals, there are cat, owl or even hedgehog cafes. If you are obsessed with Instagram, there are tons of insta-worthy spots, food, and cafes. Trend changes so fast that sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the latest trends. But that’s one of the reasons you should visit Tokyo more than once. Tokyo probably doesn’t feel the same as once you visited before. As mentioned above, there are many different types of neighborhoods in Tokyo. So here is small advice. When you visit somewhere just because it's famous, you might not know what to do once you get there. So we advise you to do some research and make a plan in advance, or visit us.
