It’s a blend of style, glamour, success and interesting culture. It is also very much abuzz with activity but affords a sense of security which comes only with complete orderliness – which is also the secret behind the city’s financial success.

And even though one might feel that it is an atmosphere of relentlessness, perseverance and impassiveness that is afforded to the first-timer, the city, in contrast to its business side, feature an atmosphere of gentility, culture, religion, tradition and good manners. It is also a town of fashion, culinary art, daring designs and great attractions.

Whilst on a business trip to Tokyo one of the main aspects to take in to consideration is transport. Two main Airports serve this city. The main international being Narita Airport, which is about 40 miles from the city centre, and the domestic being Haneda Airport, which offers mainly domestic flights. From Narita Airport one can take the taxi or the rail to get to the city. Of course taxi fares are exorbitant and most prefer the public transport which will be about one-tenth the cost of a taxi. Japan Railways take you from Narita to the various hubs in Tokyo. To get to the northeasters Ueno station the best option would be the Keisei Skyliner which operated frequently. For direct transport to hotels via bus one may even try the Airport Limousine Company. The town itself is served by an efficient and punctual network of private and municipal trains and subways. The fare depends on the distance travelled and one can even opt for the convenient day pass.

Business travellers are afforded a range of suitable lodging options and for those seeking a luxury hotel Tokyo features a whole range. Generally any Tokyo hotel affords comfort and relaxation and a soothing atmosphere. For that ambiance and mood one long for at the end of busy day try the Peninsula Tokyo which affords easy access to the business hub.
