Quick & Easy Tokyo 快速及简易的游览东京

Tokyo prior to 1968 was known as Edo, a small castle town in the 16th century but today it is the world’s most populous metropolis and one of Asia’s must visit destinations for unlimited choice of shopping, entertainment, culture, art and dining. Not to mention the rich history offered by this city to visitors is beyond words can describe. If one only have a few days in Tokyo then…

在1968年前,东京被称为江户。若追溯回更早以前的历史,东京在16世纪时只是一个小镇,不过,如今已演变为亚洲着名及必游的大都市,不管是购物、娱乐、文化、艺术及食物,都有着繁多的选择,还有其丰富历史,往往让到访游客目不暇给。如果只能在东京待个几天,建议如下:


It is highly recommended that short stay visitors should purchase a daily travel pass that can be used on all JR, subways and bus lines within the Tokyo district. Trains run from 5am till midnight. Transportation here can be very expensive if one does not plan properly.

推荐打算短程旅游的游客购买一日游车券,这样就可在一天内无限量乘搭东京的地铁及巴士。地铁系统是从早上5时至凌晨运作,若没提早规划行程,东京的交通费是蛮高的。


Tokyo DisneySea is a good choice for those who have been to a few Disneyland around the world and wanted to experience something different but still within the magical Disney. A fantasy theme park inspired by myths and legends of the sea, many reviews have stated that this park is more suitable for the grown up audience but personally I feel that there is no such thing as adults when it comes to the world of Disney. It is the place that even the elderly feel as if they were kids as it just brings back so many memories.

若曾到其他国家的迪斯尼乐园游玩的人士,来东京时不妨到访全球唯一以海洋为主题的迪斯尼海洋乐园,既能带来全新感受,也能继续保有迪斯尼乐园梦幻及童话般的氛围。虽然经常有人会说,迪斯尼海洋乐园是适合成人游玩的园地,可是我还是觉得,既然来到迪斯尼乐园,就再没有小孩及成人之分了。这是一个让成人也能返老还童的乐园,伴随的还有很多年幼时期的美好回忆。

Odaiba is a man-made island in Tokyo Bay where shopping and entertainment are plenty for those who love to explore. Besides the Fuji Building and the Rainbow Bridge, Tokyo Joypolis is a fun and exciting play station for those with strong hearts whereas the National Museum of Emerging Science or also known as Miraikan offers visitors an insight to how far technology has progressed and if you are lucky, Asimo will sing for you. Palette Town is a large shopping and entertainment centre that consists of Venus Fort shopping centre, the Ferris Wheel, Zepp Tokyo, Toyota Mega Web and Tokyo Leisureland. There is no doubt that one will feel the ‘pain’ especially on the legs after a long day’s walk so remember to save some time to visit Oedo Onsen, the hot spring theme park that offers baths, scrubs and massages. Guests are expected to be naked.

台场是日本东京湾内一座以填海造陆方式製造出来的巨大人工岛,修筑了许多採用现代规划造景的商场与娱乐设施,供游客探索其中。

位于富士电视台建筑物及彩虹大桥旁的世嘉电子游戏玩乐城,适合追求刺激感的游客。若是来到日本科学未来馆,则可见识科技的进步,幸运的话,还可看到机器人Asimo的演唱。五彩城(Palette Town)是一个大型的娱乐商城,由维纳斯广场、摩天轮、Zepp  Tokyo体育馆、丰田汽车Mega   Web展示场及东京休闲乐园组成。

要在一天内游览这麽多地方,脚板会一定很痛呢!因此,别忘了预留一些时间到访大江户温泉馆,享受温泉泡澡及按摩。值得一提的是,客人在享受温泉泡澡时必须祼体。

The famous place crowded with people walking here, there, everywhere when the lights turn green is none other than the Shibuya Crossing. Shibuya is popular for its youth fashion and culture. Most of the large-area department and fashion stores belong to either Tokyu or Seibu that are rivals in this competitive times.

涉谷大型十字路口总是人来人往,尤其是交通灯转绿的时候,来自四面八方的人潮一涌而上,往马路另一端前进的景象,非常壮观。涉谷是年轻人时尚的购物及文化街区,这当中,大部分的大型商场和时尚商店都属于东急或西武这两家竞争激烈的公司。

Japanese pride themselves as one of the nations in the world that offers the best seafood when it comes to freshness and quality. As such Tsukiji Fish Market should be in everyone’s diary when visiting Tokyo. Although the sizes of fish have shrunk quite a bit compared to my last visit a few years ago, the freshness and the long queue still remain. Remember to try the ‘Tamagoyaki’, the Japanese style omelette, not in the restaurants but from the speciality shops.

日本人一直引以为傲的是其食物的新鲜度及品质,因此,相信筑地市场是所有游客到访东京的必到之处。与数年前我到访筑地市场的经验相比,鱼的尺寸已缩减不少,无论如何,筑地市场食物的鲜度及大排长龙的景象,还是没改变。还有,来到筑地市场,记得在特色店屋尝试日式鸡蛋卷「玉子烧」。
