Cherry blossom season in Japan lasts for about a week in late March or early April. A time honored tradition among the Japanese is to have a picnic under one of the cherry blossom trees. Popular spots for this include the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace or the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Torsakarin Getty Images

Tokyo Skytree towers over Tokyo's skyline, bypassing other popular vantage points including Tokyo Tower and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. The Skytree allows visitors but be prepared for long lines. Yoshio Tomii Getty Images

The best place to experience the urban chaos of Tokyo is the Shibuya Crossing, located right outside the Shibuya metro station. When one street light turns red at the crossing, all of them do as to accommodate the area's many pedestrians. Juergen Sack Getty Images

From Odaiba, you'll have tremendous views of Tokyo Bay. Putt Sakdhnagool Getty Images

Believe it or not, karaoke was invented in Japan. So while out, make sure you stop by a karaoke bar. You can find a handful of them in Shibuya. Image Source Getty Images

If you want to snag cool electronics, comics or anime there's no better place to shop than Akihabara. On the weekends, the streets are vehicle-free to accommodate pedestrians. Yongyuan Dai Getty Images

Don't expect California rolls when you arrive in Tokyo. Here, sushi is very different from what's offered in the U.S. While some is wrapped in seaweed, a lot of it is cuts of fish placed on top of rice. That's it.  RichLegg Getty Images

The Imperial Palace is where Japan's emperor and the royal family reside. Getting admitted is tough, but still stop by to visit the verdant East Gardens.  Marc Buehler Flickr

For high-end shopping and some of Tokyo's highly acclaimed restaurants, head to Ginza visualspace Getty Images

While at the Meiji Shrine, travelers recommend contributing to the prayer wall. All you have to do is write down a wish and tie it onto this wall.  Marc Buehler Flickr
