Japan’s busy capital is a mix of the ultramodern and the traditional, from neon-lit skyscrapers to historic temples. The Imperial Palace, home to the emperor, sits amidst large public gardens. The opulent Meiji Shinto Shrine is known for its towering gate and surrounding woods. The city’s many museums offer exhibits ranging from classical art (in the Tokyo National Museum) to a reconstructed kabuki theater (in the Edo-Tokyo Museum).
