Love this shot of central Tokyo with the Tokyo Tower smack in the middle. The Japanese capital is one of our favorite places on earth. We love visiting Tokyo — and travel to and around Japan, in general. There’s so much human activity at street level in Tokyo and so many interesting urban spaces. Once one steps out of the hotel, one could walk for hours and hours just exploring. And in recent years, there’s a lot to explore in terms of great street art by Japanese and foreign artists — some obscure, some well-known — in the backstreets of the Harajuku, Ura-Harujuku, Naka-meguro and Daikanyama neighborhoods. Book that flight now, Speed Racer.
