About Tokyo Podcast

One of the most exciting cities in Asia, Tokyo is a pulsating, neon-lit, adrenaline rush! From it’s hyper modern culture to it’s cutting edge technology this is a city that is rushing full speed ahead into the future, and yet there is a quiet calm among the 13 million people who call Tokyo home. Historic parks and temples stand beside modern skyscrapers and internet cafes, fashion conscious Tokyoites shop alongside women wearing traditional kimonos, and at the heart of the city the stately Imperial Palace retains a tangible link to the past.
