Tokyo Sports

Tokyo is a rich tapestry of nature, technology and tradition that offers something for everyone – and it’s the same when it comes to sports in Japan’s capital.

Tokyo Relax

In the capital of Japan, everything is grander and more remarkable, including the methods of relaxation. Why take a regular bath, when you can clear your mind at the spacious Tokyo Sento Hasunuma Onsen bathhouse? And why not stay at traditional ryokan-style inns, minimalist hotels, hotel zen tokyo, or the Book and Bed Tokyo Shinjuku hotel-library combo instead of a regular hotel? Enter a whole new realm of relaxation in Tokyo.

Tokyo Craft

There is an important part of Tokyo history that with which most people never come in contact with: the craftsmanship of Tokyo's traditional arts that has been passed down from master to apprentice since the Edo period (1603-1868). Join us as we journey into this rarely-seen world of fine-pattern dyeing, costumed doll-making, intricate blades-forging (without molds), and soothing construction of melodious, thirteen-stringed instruments. You’ll soon see how such craftsmanship forms a beautiful bridge between Tokyo's past and its present.
