The Japanese capital Tokyo is like no other city in the world. This huge city with about 9 million inhabitants breathes innovation and tradition at the same time. Food, shopping, technology and culture, Tokyo has something for just about everyone!
Tokyo has a humid subtropical climate with long hot, humid summers and short mild winters. However, there is a clear difference between the four seasons. Spring comes in early March and then tourists flock into the city to witness the magic when the cherry trees are in bloom. During the summer, temperatures rise to around 30 degrees and heavy rain showers are not uncommon.
Of course, there are endless things to see and do in this giant city, but below are some of our best tips!
Tokyo Sky Tree is, with its 634 meters, the world's second tallest building. Construction of the tower began in 2008 and was completed in 2011. The main purpose of the tower is radio and television communication, but is also a major tourist attraction in the form of observatory platforms 350 meters and 450 meters up the tower. Here you get a fantastic view of the city to say the least. Just make sure to be on site early in the morning as tickets run out fast.
Senso-ji is an ancient Buddhist temple located in the district of Asakusa. The temple was built in the 6th century and is Tokyo's oldest and most famous. Every day at 15:00 you have the opportunity to take part in the daily guided tour around the temple. The guide speaks English and it takes about 1 ½ hour.
Japanese cuisine has a lot to offer. Pure flavors, fresh ingredients and beautiful layouts characterize the food. Common ingredients in many dishes are rice, noodles, seafood.
Sushi, perhaps Japan's most famous dish, is now available to eat wherever you are in the world. But eating Sushi in Japan is something really special. These small mouthfuls come in an infinite number of varieties but usually contain raw fish or seafood with rice.
Another well-known dish is the noodle soup Ramen. Thin wheat noodles cooked in chicken broth with meat or fish and vegetables. Often served with a soy marinated egg.
If you visit Tokyo, you must experience the national sport Sumo Wrestling. The Japanese martial art is about getting the opponent to touch the ground with something other than the soles of the feet. Sumo wrestling includes a variety of traditions and ceremonies. Among other things, the hairstyle (mage) is an important part. Weight classes do not occur in sumo wrestling, but here the practitioners have to rely on their technique to defeat their opponent.
Do not forget to book tickets at least a month in advance! At Ryogoko Metro Station is Sumo Stadium, the national sumo wrestling arena.

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
