Whatever your interests, there's likely a place in Tokyo that's dedicated to them. Hundreds of sub-cultures and specialty stores flourish across the city's many neighborhoods. It's absolutely worth diving a little deeper into this metropolis to find what you're looking for.
Tokyo also has an incredibly diverse food scene, with every variety of Japanese cuisine and a rich array of international ones. From convenience stores to Michelin-starred restaurants, there's bound to be something to suit your tastes and budget. While you're visiting, keep in mind that the legal drinking age in Japan is 20, and eating on local public transit is considered rude.


Standard Japanese is spoken throughout Tokyo and is understood across the country. English can be used in the major tourist areas, but it won't be understood everywhere. Even though a language barrier may exist, a combination of slow, clear English and gestures should get you through most situations.
