    "Kimono" over and check out a Tokyo vacation rental

    Is there anywhere on earth like Tokyo? Japan's capital is the most populous metropolitan area in the world, and frankly that's one of the least remarkable things about it. Tokyo manages to be super-modern and efficient, but full of character at the same time. Its neon cityscapes are totally iconic, and its pop culture is a global phenomenon. And that's before you tackle the dining and nightlife. Tokyo vacation rentals are something everyone should experience at least once in their life, and as you look out over the glittering city from the Tokyo Tower, you'll wonder why it took you so long.

    Cuteness overload in Tokyo? "Kawaii" not?

    When most folk book their Tokyo vacation rentals, it's the Japanese culture that's top of the agenda. The heartland of Japanese pop subcultures and "kawaii" cuteness is the district of Harajuku, and it's the kind of sightseeing and shopping that you definitely shouldn't miss out on. For unbeatable views of Japan's premier city, you'll want to visit the observation decks at either the Tokyo Tower and the Tokyo Skytree, the latter of which is the tallest tower in the world. And don't forget about the outlying areas either, with forested mountains, shrines and tranquil temples to nose around.

    Get spirited away with Tokyo's amazing attractions

    Whether you're more about pop culture or classic Japanese tradition, you'll find it with Tokyo vacation rentals. To take things right back in time, Senso-Ji is Tokyo's oldest temple, and it's an iconic city sight. Follow it up with a visit to the Imperial Palace or the Tokyo National Museum – which houses over 100,000 objects, including nearly 40% of Japan's national treasures. For something more modern, see if you can wangle tickets to the Ghibli Museum, with exhibits relating to the legendary animation studio. The city's also full of gorgeous parks and botanical gardens, like Rikugien and Shinjuku Gyoen.

    Would you mind turning up the aircon please? Arigato!

    If you're visiting Tokyo in summer, then be prepared for things to get a bit sticky from time to time. Summers are hot and humid, but when winter rolls around you'll find it cools off considerably, with occasional snowfall. A potential annoyance is the typhoons that sometimes hit this stretch of coast, but they're rarely serious. Though more commonly associated with the city of Kyoto, "hanami" – or viewing cherry blossom – is popular in Tokyo, too, and if you're hoping to catch the trees at their most beautiful, then April is the prime time for a visit.

    With a place this size, Godzilla would have his work cut out

    It's difficult to get your head round the vastness of Tokyo. Stretching nearly 100 km from Tokyo Bay, it's a sprawling metropolis, encompassing cities, islands and mountains. What you might not expect about Tokyo is that more than a third of its area is covered with forest, and a third of it is also designated as natural parks. One thing you may have heard about is the earthquakes. Tokyo can feel hundreds of minor quakes in a year, but the whole city is built to withstand them, and while the tremors are alarming to travellers, most Tokyo locals barely notice them.
