Tokyo
This ultramodern metropolis is one of the most exciting cities on the planet—something is always happening in Tokyo.

Seasoned travelers know that a trip to the Tsukiji Central Fish Market is an absolute must to experience traditional Japanese culture—the only downside is that this wholesale auction is best at 5 a.m., so be prepared!

Another rather touristy but necessary stop is Tokyo Tower, but the trick is to go just before dusk. That way you're granted two spectacular views: the Tokyo skyline at sunset and then the sparkling city at night.
