A week in Tokyo

I was one week in Tokyo in early May 2001.

New Tokyo

Tokyo is a modern city with 12 million inhabitants. It is cleaner than most cities of its size, and crime barely exists. The population is more homogenous than most big cities.

Historic Tokyo

In between the skyscrapers one can find ancient temples and parks.


On the island of Odaiba in Tokyo Bay, there are many modern shopping and conference centers as well as museums and office buildings.

Tsukiji Market

Every day, more than 2 million kilo fish are sold at the Tokyo Central Wholesale Market in Tsukiji. At the market, one can also find fruit, vegetables and meat.
