A Study In Contrasts And Contradictions


Tokyo’s powerful vitality springs from the unique interaction of the aggressively modern with time-honored ancient traditions. Japanese culture stretches back millennia, while simultaneously adapting and creating the latest modern fashions and trends.  

This high-pressure metropolis, where traditional rituals and philosophies interact with 21st century ideas and energy, produces world-changing art, music, inventions and commerce.   Throngs of its tech-savvy, smartly styled residents rush through subway stations and streets, while the traditional side to this modern super-city provides a quietly steady undercurrent.  For all of its manic hyperactivity, there’s an ancient serene soul woven throughout the fabric of Tokyo’s 21st century aspirations and activity.  Perhaps the greatest proof of this is that with all of its frenetic energy, Japan has the highest life expectancy of any country in the world.
