When you visit a country for the first time, you must see the country's national representative landmarks, so when you come to Japan, you must know the famous sights such as Mount Fuji and Tokyo Tower, and for these representative landmarks, I recommend you to come to Tokyo.
Unlike Kansai, which is warm and bold and full of city life, Tokyo is exquisitely beautiful, bustling and lively, as well as national landmarks, and classic scenes that appear in Japanese dramas and anime, all of which are great reasons for travelers to choose Tokyo for the first time in Japan.
Recommended national attractions:
1、Mount Fuji: Japan's calling card, this attraction needs no introduction and can simply be said to be the view that comes to mind when Japan is mentioned. In winter, if the weather is good, you can see it from the city of Tokyo; in summer, you can also do mountaineering activities, and you can climb to the height of the Gokyo.
2、Asakusa Temple: The most famous and oldest temple in Tokyo, its popularity can be seen in Japanese dramas. Frequent temple events allow you to get up close and personal with classic Japanese customs.
3、Tokyo Eiffel Tower - Tokyo Tower: One of the icons of Tokyo, climbing to the top of the tower gives you a panoramic view of the entire city, and in good weather you can see Mount Fuji.
In addition to the most famous national landmarks mentioned above, there are also Akihabara, Ginza, and Shibuya's statue of a faithful dog, all of which are familiar and world-famous landmarks, Tokyo really contains a lot of them.
Must-see attractions for fans of anime and manga:
1、Synonymous with youth and fervor - Kamakura High School: The most famous shot from "SLAM DUNK／スラムダンク".

3、Miyazaki Hayao's dream place - Mitaka no Mori Ghibli Museum: mention the name of this attraction, you may not know, but once you say Miyazaki Hayao, I am afraid that most people have heard of or seen his works. This museum, full of wonder and romance, was designed by Miyazaki himself on the basis of his studio. You can also find various classic characters and scenes from the anime outdoors.
A good place for those who love the retro and cold Tones style:
Roppongi: Compared to the interesting and sophisticated shopping district, the "ins style" here is actually more advanced and has a stronger sense of design. The sophistication and style of Roppongi is evident in the various art museums. In addition, you can take the best night view of Tokyo from the observation deck of Roppongi building.
