Popular Cities


Tokyo is Japan's capital and the largest metropolitan area on the globe. Each day, 30 million people live, commute, work, and party in this cutting edge city. Although using the train and subway system in Tokyo is efficient, knowing how to devote your time and navigate your experience can be overwhelming. There are big traveler's attractions to take in like Meiji Shrine, Emperor's Palace, and Roppongi nightlife, but there are also hundreds of no name backstreets lined with shinto shrines, family-owned noodle shops, public bathhouses, koi ponds, and curio shops. Here you'll find a collection of articles that help you work your way through the big experiences and the local. Matador community members share their favorite Tokyo nightlife spots, theme restaurants, restaurants, and encounters.
