Tokyo is easily reached with 1,600 International flights per week at Narita Airport (42 flights from London). The city has 3,600 hotels with a total number of 84,000 rooms, ranging from deluxe to budget. Tokyo is situated approximately halfway along the long and arc-shaped archipelago of Japan, spreading over the Kanto Plain and facing the Pacific Ocean. The city presents a complex urban landscape, with layer after layer of railways and highways with a mighty conglomeration of buildings in between. Tokyo is actually dozens of cities within a city. At the core is the business center of Chiyoda Ward; to the east is the centre of the former Edo-town people's culture, shitamachi, and to the west is the skyscraper city of Shinjuku, where the Tokyo government now resides. Meanwhile, around all the major stations are mega department stores, shopping, and restaurant districts. But no matter where you are in Tokyo, you only have to step a street or two back from the main thoroughfare to discover the people. What is also surprising about Tokyo is that there are parks and gardens and within an hour of the city centre there are beaches and a green hinterland. Slightly further afield are volcanic islands with white sandy shores, and deep mountains for trekking, fishing, and camping. Tokyo is clean and safe, easy to get around, and to get things done. The low crime rate is famous, and the efficiency of the city's public transport legendary. The Japanese people expect perfection in workmanship, are strict in their adherence to social rules.
