Overview
IES-Tokyo

Tokyo, with a population well over 10 million, is the political and financial capital of today's Japan. Tokyo is a modern city of wonderful contrasts. Its dignified temples and shrines quietly stand in the shadows of massive skyscrapers. Tokyo's fast pace is subdued by the serene charm of its many parks and the quiet courtesy of its people. Both energetic and graceful, Tokyo is a gateway to the fascinating culture of Japan.
