Tokyo : Michelin's recommendations
The spectacle of rush hour at Shibuya junction illustrates one of the paradoxes of Tokyo: the sheer volume of human traffic, advancing almost robotically, and the lack of stress for travellers. The kindness you encounter from Japanese people attenuates any uneasiness. It also permeates the vestiges of the traditional Japan, and Tokyo has many of these. Of course, you will have to contend with the enormity (13 million inhabitants) and the frantic rush for modernism. Your stay in Tokyo, where the concept of prison-themed cafés was invented and even the dogs practise yoga, won't fail to deliver at least a few surprises.
