Asakusa by night © yoshikazut
After the crowds go home, Tokyo’s tourist districts revert to their former selves. Even the busiest streets, like this alley off of Nakamise in Asakusa, become pleasant places for a contemplative stroll.
Tokyo backstreet © valbanese
It’s easy to focus only on the big name sights in Tokyo and forget the backstreets and local neighborhoods that form the greater part of the city. I highly recommend just wandering aimlessly through the backstreets, getting lost, and experiencing the fabric of everyday life in the city.

The Chidorigafuchi moat, at the northwest corner of the Imperial Palace is one of the best places in the city to enjoy the cherry blossoms. If you’re planning to visit the city during cherry blossom season, now is a good time to start making some bookings.
