Flights to Tokyo

Sumo and sushi in Tokyo

Feel like a dynamic city trip full of surprises? Book flights to Tokyo and discover a metropolis overflowing with contrasts. You’ll find temples, old street lanterns and other traces of ancient Japan right alongside modern high-rises and flashing neon advertising. And you won’t believe your eyes when you visit the Shibuya district and the world’s busiest junction! Shop for the very latest Japanese trends in the Harajuku district. Or get a bird’s eye view of the city from the top of the Tokyo Tower. The Disneyland and DisneySea amusement parks are not to be missed either.

Fish markets and teahouses

Early birds start their day with a visit to the Tsukiji fish market where gigantic freshly caught tuna are traded early in the morning. Anyone who thinks that sushi is just an evening meal would be sorely mistaken. It’s normal here for makizushi and narezushi to be served (over the counter) at 7 o’clock in the morning! Afterwards, head to the beautiful Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. It has various themed gardens, including a traditional Japanese garden with a teahouse. Tokyo is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Japan. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Tokyo now!

Karaoke and other entertainment

Shops, restaurants, entertainment and wonderful views – you’ll find them all at the Roppongi Hills Complex, a city within a city. The Shinjuku district is the place to be for a fantastic evening out. Grab a bite to eat at one of the countless restaurants or sing your heart out at a typical Japanese karaoke bar. If the city becomes too hectic for you, take a trip to the magnificent Mount Fuji which dominates the Tokyo skyline. This sacred mountain is the symbol of Japan itself.
