With no discernible centre, Tokyo’s vast urban sprawl can be overwhelming on your first visit. The densely populated neon-lit centre is there if you want it, but go behind the concrete and Tokyo reveals itself to be a city of small back streets and quiet spaces. It also offers impeccable service, knock-out food and great shopping. No wonder Tokyo leaves other cities in its wake.
