Tokyo, Japan

Executive summary by darmansjah

We love Tokyo for its tantalizing food, relentless exuberance of energy, and innovative architectures. Take Tokyo Skytree for example: officially opened this March, it stands at a staggering height of 634 metres, also taking the spot of second tallest structure in the world. One of Asia’s leading fashion capitals, Tokyo also resonates with colourful cultures and festivals galore, such as the Grand Sumo Tournament.

Happening from 13 to 24 September, two of the six tournaments will take place at Tokyo’s Kokugikan in the Ryoguku section of Sumida district, where visitors can witness the battle of the sumo wrestlers, or catch them strolling along the streets in their kimonos and wood clogs. For those who rise early, be sure to catch sumo players’ practice sessions at training stables such as Tatsunami Stable and izutsu Stable.

Fly Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines or All Nippon Airways from Singapore to Narita international Airport. AirAsia caters flights from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Haneda Airport.

Just three minutes walk from JR Kinshi-Cho station, Tobu Hotel Levant Tokyo is ideally located near major sightseeing attractions, sporting 382 luxurious rooms and offering state of the art facilities (from US$60).
