Tokyo steps out in 2021
Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau has painted a dynamic (but very safe) image of Tokyo in the “new normal”, in an ITB Berlin NOW press conference.
A spokesperson for the convention bureau gave a virtual tour, outlining current hotel conditions, outdoor entertainment, nature, rich islands and the Tama area, to the west of Tokyo. From sushi to Japanese bars and fusion cuisine, Tokyo is now globally renowned as a foodie city, with a culture melding the ancient traditions and modern style.
As Tokyo prepares for the delayed summer Olympics, health and safety at events is a top priority: “We will introduce new facilities for the event, outline of the rules that will allow each and every one of us to contribute to safe and successful events,” said the spokesperson, while also presenting the new-look Shibuya metro station – set to be a new icon of Tokyo.
