Tokyo HotelsFor many, the vast, glittering neon sprawl that makes up Tokyo is a vision of the future today. The bustling technology hotspot has a huge amount of things to see and do, especially when it comes to sightseeing, nightlife, and dining. There's a buzzing fish market, where you can sample the freshest salty seafood, as well as a massive collection of restaurants. Among the blinking skyscrapers and high tech wizardry, you'll also find lots of Japanese cultural buildings and temples to explore.Things to seeFor a family visit, you'll be hard pressed to find a better day trip for the kids than Disneyland Tokyo, which is kitted out with the same familiar attractions as its European and American counterparts - expect to find the elegant towers and spires of the princess' castle and all the kids' favorite characters bounding around the park. One of the defining sights of the city. Shibuya Crossing is definitely a must see. The crisscrossed pedestrian walkways that weave through this huge meeting points of roads is an impressive design, and one that other cities across the world are planning to implement. The main draw though, is watching the perfectly ordered and uniform procession of pedestrians crossing like army ants. For even more family fun, head to Tokyo DisneySea, a relatively recent addition to the city, where the kids can explore a fantastical, nautical themed Disney haven. Hotels in
