As one of the cosmopolitan city in the world, population of Tokyo metropolitan area is 36 million people, making it the world’s No.1 megalopolis (No.2 is Delhi, India).


TOKYO-City with the cutting-edge technology and infinite and diverse culture.

Science and the traditional Japanese culture cross over and clash, yet variety of cultures keeps social distance from each other, and show an attractive and mysterious scenery in a perfect balance of being attached on to the time-honored traditions in some parts and clinging on to the latest emerging innovations in others.

⑦Tsukiji "Sushi"

From 1935 to late 2018, Tsukiji was home to the most famous fish market in the world.
