Bridge Tourist Spot
Behold spectactular views across the city from Tokyo Gate Bridge, a magnificent feat of engineering that traverses Tokyo Bay in a great sweeping curve. Nicknamed "Dinosaur Bridge" owing to its design reminicent of two titanic beasts facing off, the bridge spans 2,618 m (8,589 ft) and took around a decade to complete. From this vantage point, 87.8 m (288 ft) high, you can watch shipping traffic sail beneath your feet, as well as great aeroplanes descending to land at the city's airport (the bridge's height was restricted to 100 m (328 ft) for this very reason). Consider bringing along some binoculars on your walk, to make the most of the endless detail of the dramatic cityscape.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
