Ieyasu's shrine to himself and the mighty samurai class, Toshogu, was one of only a tiny number of buildings in the area that managed to survive this fierce final battle. So in-your-face reformers! Don't mess with this Shogun, even in death.
Odaiba on the other side of Tokyo's Rainbow Bridge is an island of food and fun with the added perk of great views of the city, including Tokyo Tower and Sky Tree. But for Japan Fan Boys and Fan Girls, there's way more to it than that.
It's easy to over-indulge in Tokyo, but everything from the sushi to the cocktails are moments not to be missed. Every time I visit, I see, taste and experience something new, which increases the emotional tie I have with this truly unique city.
