The world’s greatest city
With an area of approximately 2,000 square kilometers and a population of over 13 million, Tokyo is the core of the most densely populated area on Earth. A city where the old is juxtaposed with the hyper-new, Tokyo contains high-rise buildings and flashing neon as well as historic shrines and temples. Each area of the city provides visitors with a gateway to a different world. These include Shinjuku, home of the world's busiest train station; Shibuya, a shopping district popular with Japanese youth; Minato, home to tourism centers Odaiba and Roppongi; and Taito, which features traditional parks and neighborhoods. Tokyo is serviced by two international airports, Narita and Haneda, and is on the itinerary of nearly every visitor to Japan.
