When to Visit
The best time to visit Tokyo is Mid-March, in order to witness Japan’s famous cherry blossoming. Be prepared to a large number of crowds all around the city’s parks during this time and book your hotel far in advance. If you want. If you don’t mind rain and want to smaller crowds of tourists visit some time in September through November.
As a visitor to the city, it is easy to get overwhelmed when making your way around. Traffic in Tokyo can feel never ending and parking can be difficult to find so driving your own car, hailing a taxi or rideshare are not the best idea. The City metro is the most efficient way to get around and most of the signage is in both Japanesse and in English.
