London to Tokyo
Wave goodbye to the UK’s capital city and practice saying “konnichiwa” on your London to Tokyo flight in preparation for your arrival in the Japanese capital.
If you enjoyed shopping in Knightsbridge, Camden Market, Bond Street and Oxford Street, you’re sure to love the many retail options in places like Ginza, Shinjuku, Akihabara and Harajuku.
Change Trafalgar Square, the British Museum, London Bridge and the Churchill War Rooms for the Tokyo Skytree, Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi Park and Tokyo Bay. If you thought to take the London Underground (also known as the Tube) during rush hour was chaotic, wait until you experience the hive of activity at Shibuya Crossing, often appropriately referred to as The Scramble.
Swap shepherd’s pie, fish and chips and roast beef for sashimi, sushi, ramen and tempura, trade Charles Dickens and William Shakespeare for anime and manga, switch gin for sake, and change football and cricket for sumo and martial arts.
