61. Drink some avocado…

The tasteful decor of this fresh juice shop recalls the classic 'parlours' of the Showa era. At ¥900-¥1 500 per juice, it's a little expensive, but worth it – an entire pack of strawberries goes into one strawberry juice.

62. Celebrate the grain...

As Japan’s staple carb, it’s not surprising rice has an entire shop and restaurant dedicated to it. The former is particularly impressive, stocking a whopping 6,000 items, including a variety of grains and paraphernalia.

63. Appreciate some eclectic film…

Showing a fascinating mix of movies, particularly indie productions from both Japan and abroad with lots of experimental and short work thrown in as well, Uplink also holds events like talks and live performances.

64. Splurge on a top-quality knife...

It’s time to stop sawing away at your ingredients with a flimsy ¥100 bread knife, and splurge on a real one. Pick up a better class of cutting tool at Yoshikin’s showroom, where Global Knife blades line the walls like swords.

65. Embrace the avant-garde…

A haven for Tokyo’s avant-garde types, SuperDeluxe hosts improv gigs, rock shows, dance performances and Pecha Kucha nights – and also serves Tokyo Ale, a highly quaffable craft brew.

66. Feast on kushiage...

There’s no need to order at Hantei: staff bring course after course of tasty kushiage skewers, stopping after every six to ask if you want to continue. The beautiful old wooden building just makes it all the more enjoyable.

67. Hover over the city sights...

What better way to see the sights of Tokyo/feel like a billionaire than with a helicopter ride? Take the weight from your wallet with a Sky Charter Cruise, and view the likes of Roppongi HIlls and the Skytree from way up high.

68. Go back to (art) school...

Well-known artists and aspiring creative types jostle for attention at the vibrant, chaotic 3331 Arts Chiyoda, a multi-storey art centre housed in a former junior high school.
