Tokyo is a world famous city that is dazzling in its modernity but still manages to retain its traditional culture along with a passion for everything new. The city may seem overwhelming and incomprehensible at first, but gradually most people who spend any amount of time there grow to love it. It is full of bars, neon, nightlife and friendly people.
