Inner city peace

The electric atmosphere adds to the allure of Tokyo, but there’s a quieter side to this city. In the countless public gardens and shrines, the buzz of the city gives way to respectful silence.

Fly to Tokyo to see the Shinto shrine Meiji Jingu. An area of lush forest and landmarks that spans almost 200 acres, it’s one of the most relaxing places in the whole city.

The highlight of a trip to Japan has to be Hanami season. Visit during this time and you’ll find Tokyo is turned pink by a world of cherry blossom trees in full bloom.

Tokyo changes once the sun goes down. The streets bustle with activity, as tourists and locals alike search for a good meal and quirky entertainment.

Next stop, Roppongi. This district is known for its effervescent nightlife – you’ll find everything here from laid-back jazz lounges to quirky karaoke bars.

Things to know before you fly to Tokyo

plane Airport transfers

When travelling into Tokyo from Narita Airport (NRT), it’s a good idea to pre-book your transfer with Etihad so your driver is waiting when you land. Tokyo’s efficient transport system means there are regular trains linking the airport to downtown Tokyo, making it a popular option with travellers.

It’s usual to take off your shoes before entering someone’s home. The same applies at many businesses and hotels. Tipping is not customary in Japan and will usually be refused on principle.

Tokyo’s subway and bus networks are efficient and extensive, making it easy to get around the city. Pick up a prepay card – Pasmo or Suica – for travelling on the metro to the network of suburbs that make Tokyo so special. Taxis are available but can be expensive.

meals Local cuisine

Needless to say, sushi is a must-try in Tokyo. Most restaurants offer a choice of set meals of around a dozen different types of sushi, while more informal eateries have pre-prepared dishes you can select from a conveyor belt.
