These Photos Will Make You Want to Book a Tokyo Trip

With sake, sushi, amazing art and a phenomenal atmosphere, there’s no better time to book a flight to the Japanese capital

Each month we highlight some of our favourite travel photos taken around the world – including some submitted by our readers. This month we’re flying to Tokyo, city of a hundred thousand things to do: from zen stillness to cultural touchstones to late-night vibes.
