In Japan's capital, it would appear that there is a perfect blend of opposites. In one direction you would find the peaceful, carefully maintained landscapes of Hamarikyu Garden and in the other, the chaotic and frenzied atmosphere of the Tsukiji Fish Market. Both are a must-see as they are regarded to be two of the most popular tourist attraction spots in the city.
It is for these opposites that Tokyo is the ideal destination for any traveller; with the added bonus of the majority of attractions being either centralized in the city or conveniently located by public transportation routes, tourists can sample the delights which Tokyo has to offer and beyond without incurring too much stress or hassle.
The Roppongi Hills for example, hosts a sprawling complex of hotels, restaurants, museums and movie theatres while shoppers are well also well catered for with a wide array of shops in which to hunt down a bargain. The centre-piece of the complex is the 54-storey Mori Tower, built by building tycoon Minoru Mori at a cost of over $4 billion.
Cuisine-wise, there is a dish to suit every palate. For those wishing to experience a taste of the Japanese culture, sushi and miso soup is regarded to be a staple for the natives and for those who are less adventurous, numerous Western foods, such as pizzas, steaks and chips have also made themselves at home in menus across the city.
Of course, if you are feeling the strain of being in a new city, why not try the delights of luxury spa treatments? Once considered to be an exclusive territory for women, recent years has seen spas become increasingly populated by men and women alike. Take advantage of trained professionals whose main objective is to massage away tension from the body and mind by using a variety of techniques: the use of warmed stones to revive and revitalize muscles; wrapping one's body in a mixture of grape seed and French clay to eliminate impurities while returning a multitude of vitamins and antioxidant properties to the skin; or the use of sea salts and algae to remove dead skin cells and replenish the skin with trace elements and minerals are just some of the treatments available in spa treatments.
Nevertheless whatever the treatment chosen, rest assured that the luxury spa hotel selected to deal with your aches and pains will provide the perfect solution to your problems and can attend to your needs, so that afterwards your mind and body will be rejuvenated to continue on with the exploration of a new city and all of its pleasures.
