Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A very nice national park sitting in the middle of a very busy urban city 🌳 Saw a lot of people here after lunchtime and people were just strolling around and relaxing 😌😌

    This is a lovely temple with lots of different buildings to see and a great shopping area. You need to be prepared to take your time getting around as, even on a week day, there were huge crowds of people there. It's definitely a place you should visit if you are in Tokyo.

    One of the most important shrines in Tokyo, located a short walk away from Shibuya as you approach Harajuku, Meiji is busy, with both locals and tourists thronging the place. The ambience is one of peace & the area is beautiful.

    This was our first time in Tokyo and Asakusa! We've got to see traditional craft shops and street-food stalls along Nakamise Street near the ancient Sensō-ji temple. Was amazing! Asakusa is one of our favorite place.

    A green lung located near the Ameyayakocho shopping area, Ueno Park is huge! A great spot for views, clicks, selfies, people watching & relaxation.

    Very good overall experience between the shops at the base (including a great place for your KitKat gifts), Great views, a couple of glass floors, and the tower looking fab at night. You can also see a little better towards odaiba from here than the other 2 Tokyo towers.

    Why a lost star? There's a main (mid) deck and a top deck. If you do the top deck in the day it is a very cramped experience. You go to one inbetween floor that literally only had enough room to take pictures of people for souvenirs before queueing for the next elevator up in turn. Once at the top deck, yes you are higher up than before for even more elevated views, but if it's a busy time then the queue for the lift back down combined with the pillars actually prevents you moving freely around the windows. Also just before three lift up from main deck, there is a mandatory show in a "library", while this is a nice thing in a relaxed time, if you literally want to drive up, have a quick view, come straight back down, do plan a bit more time (or come early/very late)

    Anyway, that said, with all the amenities on the main deck, it is a great visit, I did want the challenge of using the outside steps between ground on main deck, unfortunately the up stairs were closed on the day I visited

    Worth a visit if you are in Tokyo for the brilliant views from the top. It was a cloudy when we went so we couldn't see the mountains, but the views of Tokyo were amazing.

    It is a tourist trap in a way and so much fun. If not use to this many people then it can be overwhelming.
    Try to get a view from one of the buildings (sky observatory or Starbucks) to get a better perspective.

    Ginza is a brightly lit & vibrant high street fashion, entertainment & shopping district in Tokyo. An excellent spot for people watching.

    The Tokyo government buildings in Shinjuku has two observation decks, south and north decks. This is free and have fabulous views. By comparison with Asakusa sky tree, besides being free, there's no queues.
    At night and daily, from sunset to 9:30 pm there's a light show projected on the facade of building number 1. Free and very enjoyable.

    Fabulous and very different type of art exhibit that immerses all of your senses. Went with little knowledge and I think it actually made the experience even better! Was fully curious and surprised at every turn. Highly recommend!!

    The outside of the western entrance is a beautiful, historic building. The east side is hyper modern. Inside is absolutely crazy...to the point where I needed a brief moment to myself when we arrived here on the bullet train and spent a significant amount of time trying to find the exit. But it was still an experience I won't forget navigating the size of the place and the sheer volume of people. There are a ton of shops and restaurants in the building making it easy to buy food for your journey. Its worth going there and passing through to get a sense of the intensity of the commute people in Tokyo must do every single day. Ok, you will experience this anywhere on the train line and some of the other larger stations like Ueno etc. as well. But Tokyo Central Station is all of that, injected with steroids. Don't avoid it!

    This area has everything. Real sandy beach front, cafés and backed by malls and other interesting places - Fuji building - Diver City - Aqua mall and more. All easy to get round walking. Plus public transport also easily accessed. Good hotels also in area so could be an ideal base for a Tokyo visit.

    This is a busy, interesting, loud and colourful district. Some of the shops are fascinating and if you’re into electronics it’s a great area to explore. There are also many ‘maid cafes’ and arcades if you’re into that kind of thing. For me this was a stereotypical Tokyo area and well worth wandering around.
