Tokyo is one one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is amazingly unique, culturally diverse and tasteful.
Here is our 24-hour guide to make the most of your time in Tokyo, while looking your best too.
Head to Daikanyama, where you’ll waltz some of Tokyo’s most stylish streets.
You know that Tokyo is not all about serene shrines, neon-lit streets, and bustling crossroads. In fact, it’s exactly those places that don’t live up to stereotypes that have the greatest local discoveries. Daikanyama, often referred to as “the Brooklyn of the Japanese capital,” is one of those places; a hidden gem where modernity and comfort combine the perfect harmony. A popular weekend destination for locals, this area’s relaxed vibe, tree-lined pedestrian-only streets and trendy eateries make it a suburban oasis located just a 15-minute walk from the world’s busiest intersection.

Head to Yoyogi park.
Tokyo Ramen Street
An entire arcade is dedicated to one of Japan’s great contributions to contemporary cuisine — ramen (left). Each place does its noodles slightly differently, but Rokurinsha’s are spectacular. Tokyo Station, Tokyo Ichiban-gai B1, 1-9-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku.
Make your way to Harajuku’s Takeshita Street for shopping and people-watching. Takeshita Street contains tons of quirky shops and trinket sellers. So whether you’re looking for offbeat souvenirs or unique pieces to add to your wardrobe, you’ll find them here. Harajuku’s unofficial specialty is crepes, so grab one before heading toward Shibuya.
It would be a shame to come to Tokyo and not take a walk across the famous intersection outside Shibuya Station.
After experiencing the “scramble,” walk down to Shibuya 109, a big shiny mall with more than 100 boutiques. Or duck back into Shibuya Station and down to the bustling Tokyu Food Show for an elegant array of gourmet eats and an education in local tastes.
If you are not ready yet for bed yet, then stay out. The bars typically open at around 8pm, but have no closing time – so you really can get your full 24-hours in Tokyo!
