Tokyo Japan poster print
As one of the busiest cities in the world, you could say that Tokyo is the REAL city that never sleeps!
Home to almost 14 million people (closer to 37 million if you count the Great Tokyo Area too) the city was officially established in 1868 and named Tokyo, which translates literally to “eastern capital”. Tokyo also has some of the best hotels in the world – think exquisite interiors, lush gardens and every kind of facility imaginable, and you’re halfway there. It’s definitely possible to stay in the city on a more modest budget too; with plenty of hostels and business chain hotels in the area.
One of city’s most popular visitor attractions is Tokyo Disneyland; which opened in 1983 and was constructed in the same style as the original Magic Kingdom. As the first Disney park to open outside of the USA, it has risen to become the world’s third-most visited theme park, right after (yep, you guessed it) Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort Florida and Disneyland Park California.
We’ve chosen to show off Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge as part of our poster design. Completed in 1993, the bridge’s name was chosen by the public and connects the Odaiba waterfront development in Minato and Shibaura Pier across Tokyo Bay. The bridge has two ‘decks’ to carry traffic, as well as two pedestrian walkways that offer views of the bay, Tokyo Tower and occasionally Mount Fuji.
