    Tsukiji Fish Market (Inner Market)

    Formerly scheduled to move to Toyosu this November, 2016, the world’s largest wholesale fish market is set to remain at Tsukiji for another two years, which is great news for tourists who want to catch the tuna auction at the wholesale section. Only 120 visitors a day can visit the early morning auction which starts at 5am. But even if you aren’t an early riser, Tsukiji market can be enjoyed with a walk around the outer market which consists of many food stalls selling seafood rice bowls, ramen and other local delights. And outside the wholesale market there are rows of sushi shops, seafood bowl shops, yakitori, fried foods and other eateries meant to cater to the workers at the fish market, but now also catering to hordes of tourists.

    With so many tourists flocking to the market, and an increasing number of shops selling souvenirs such as T-shirts and trinkets for tourists, it is easy to forget that this is actually a place of work crucial to the provision of fresh fish, fruits and vegetables to a majority of restaurants in Tokyo and the whole of Japan.

    The specialty shops selling knives for various purposes as well as other cutlery and seasonings from bonito to tea leaves are a reminder that this is a place where the professionals come to shop as well. And of course, the many trucks and scooters zipping around the market. The area may not be suitable to visit with young children and pets, and be sure to check the website for dates that the market is closed other than Sundays.

    Located in central Tokyo, the 333m-high Tokyo Tower was built in 1958 and provides a great bird’s eye view of Tokyo, Mt Fuji, and its sky-soaring counterpart, the Tokyo Skytree, on a clear day. This was Japan’s tallest structure until the completion of the Tokyo Skytree in 2012. The main observatory, at 150m high, can be reached via elevator or, if you’re feeling brave, a 600-step stairway, both of which are ticketed.

    The Tokyo Tower sometimes holds special events on Valentine’s Day or during Christmas season, when the tower exterior is illuminated, and the club on the observatory deck level holds various live music events every night with various themes.

    Great news for fans of manga One Piece, there is also an indoor One Piece theme park at the foot of the tower, the first large-scale One Piece theme park, where you can walk into interactive attractions featuring One Piece characters, watch live shows, eat character foods at the themed restaurant and buy original One Piece goods at the souvenir shop.

    Senso-ji Temple

    The symbol of Asakusa, Sensoji Temple is known as the oldest temple in Tokyo, founded in 628 after two fishermen hauled up a small golden statue of Bodhisattva Kannon from the Sumida River and despite trying to get rid of it, it kept surfacing in their nets, so they decided to keep it. Their chief of the village, Hajino Nakamoto, being a devout Buddhist, recognized the statue as holy and enshrined it by remodelling his house into a small temple so that all in the village could worship Kannon.

    Today, around 30 million visitors from throughout Japan and from abroad visit the temple every year. The huge lanterns hung at the Kaminari (Thunder) Gate are a landmark of the area, and taking a selfie here is a must. The temple is a popular spot for Japanese for hatsumode, or the first prayer of the year, when over three million visitors come in just the first three days of the new year. The Nakamisedori approach leading up to the temple is lined with shops selling traditional snacks and souvenirs, and makes for an entertaining walk.

    The temple, located in the heart of old Edo, was where shoguns came to worship, including the first Edo shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, who offered up his prayers for the shogunate here. Sensoji was the guardian temple of the northeast gate and Zojoji Temple in Shiba, near Tokyo Tower, was meant to guard the southwest gate, and both temples were adopted as Tokugawa’s family temples. “Senso” is another way of reading the characters for Asakusa, and Tokugawa’s patronage made the Asakusa temple area the heart of Edo culture.

      After the Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken passed away in 1912 and 1914 respectively, the people of Japan donated 100,000 trees from all over Japan and oversees to create the shrine grounds in commemoration of their contributions and virtues. The sprawling Meijijingu Shrine grounds was completed in 1920, covering an area larger than the Vatican City.

      Every year over the first three days of the New Year over three million visitors come here to offer first prayers of the year. The long pebble pathed approach is surrounded by cedar trees, making for a serene and contemplative walk, perfect for new year resolution making and reflection. You will also see an impressive display of sake barrels here donated to the shrine by various sake brewers around Japan. People come here to pray for luck of all kinds, from wealth, health to good relationships and to get charms to ward off bad luck.
