81. Hit a joggers’ pitstop...

Tokyo’s joggers are well served by this pitstop close to the Imperial Palace running track. Stash your kit, take a post-run shower, or rent a T-shirt and trainers if you’ve come under-equipped.

82. Order sushi via touchscreen…

Conveyor belt sushi shops are so last century. At Uobei, customers place their orders via touch screen, then gawp in wonder as their food is delivered by high-speed chute.

83. Visit the new Kabukiza…

Tokyo’s main kabuki theatre has stood on the same spot for over 120 years, but its present incarnation is rather newer than that – it only opened in April 2013. The souvenir shop is worth a look, too.

84. Hunt down the coffee cube…

This intriguing coffee shop is actually just a cube frame that can’t be much bigger than 3 x 3 metres. But this is a spot with a difference: it sits inside a 60-year-old traditional Japanese house.

85. Discover an arty treasure trove...

Spanning five floors, this vast store is the place for creative types to pick up pretty much any art supply they can imagine, be it paint, pencils, brushes, design materials, stationery, modelling clay or more.

86. Take a break from Tokyo, in Tokyo...

This kilometre of lush towpath, which stretches from Todoroki Station toward the children’s park, is popular but never crowded. When the weather’s good, there can be few more refreshing spots in the capital.

87. Catch a double bill at an old-school cinema...

Over 60 years old and counting, the Waseda Shochiku Cinema is among the city’s oldest and most charismatic venues, and notable for the fact that it only screens double bills.

88. Relax and see Mt Fuji…

See Mt Fuji without leaving downtown Tokyo – simply visit this old-fashioned bath house, where one entire wall is given over to a mural of the mountain.
