After visiting popular attractions like Manchester Town Hall, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Whitworth Art Gallery and the Etihad Stadium, it’s time to discover Tokyo’s highlights, including Tokyo Tower, Sensō-ji temple, Tokyo DisneySea and Inokashira Park.
Once you’ve enjoyed nights out in lively Canal Street, youthful Oxford Road and high-class Spinningfields, hit up the refined bars of Roppongi, the energetic establishments of Kabukichō, numerous karaoke bars and the unusual Robot Restaurant.
