Historical areas & Shrines

Amidst the daily bustle of Tokyo life, shrines and temples provide an interesting cultural interlude. Already on your way from the airport, you likely passed a few smaller shrines or temples – but just in case, we’ve listed a few of Tokyo’s most famous ones below.

  • Meiji Jingu (one of Tokyo’s most famous shrines)

  • Senso-ji in Asakusa (another one)

  • Ueno park (multiple shrines / temples, museums and a zoo)

  • Yanaka-ginza (a part of older downtown Tokyo – with many traditional shops)

Shopping / Modern city atmosphere / Electronics

Beyond traditional and historical areas, Tokyo is home to some of the most iconic modern street views. Bustling during the day – but even more striking when the neons light up in the evening – we would recommend at least a quick visit to one of the following areas.

  • Akihabara (in particular the Electric Town district)

  • Ginza (shopping /dining)

  • Shinjuku / Golden gai

  • Shibuya Crossing


In addition to sightseeing, Tokyo offers many other opportunities to experience Japanese culture. In particular – time permitting – we would recommend visiting a traditional Japanese onsen (hot springs). Even inside the city, there are options to experience this adventure in places such as the Odaiba Onsen Monogatari, and Spa LaQua (near Tokyo Dome – particularly close to the conference venue). Unfortunately, most Japanese onsens do not admit guests with tattoos.

If you are planning to stay in Japan beyond the duration of the conference, there are many places just outside Tokyo which make for good day-trip options. For hiking, Mount Takao is easily accessible by train. Slightly further afield, Kamakura is another great option, offering numerous shrines, and temples – and of course the famous statue of the Daibutsu (giant buddha).
