Famous for its eclectic culture, urban scenery, amazing food, and hyper-modern transport systems, Tokyo captures breathtaking minimalistic and experimental architecture. Its varying style has been shaped by the history of this city. Twice in recent history has the metropolis been left in ruins – first in the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake and later after extensive firebombing in World War II. Since then, Japanese architecture has flourished in the past 15 years, because of the persistence of the architects to redefine design standards. With this modern revamp, Tokyo gained a unique mix of architecture, with a strong emphasis on steel, concrete, and funky shapes.
If you like to walk through eclectic cities while one inspiring building after another passes by, Tokyo is definitely the destination for you. And easy to reach by boat. The Tokyo Port accommodates small and medium-sized ships at the Harumi Terminal and large ships at the Oi Terminal.
