From their "anything-goes" style to their hip-hop swagger, Japanese trendsetters bring the neon-lit spectacle of nighttime Tokyo to life.
Go There: Tokyo has something for everyone. Embrace the youthfulness of Shibuya in a terrace suite at the boutique Granbell Hotel, a favorite of fashion editors seeking a retreat from the frantic city outside. If you crave luxury, visit Ginza, where the streets are lined with architectural wonders. Enjoy lunch at the Gucci boutique’s eighth-floor café or tea at fabled department store Mitsukoshi. Come nightfall, it’s all about karaoke. Brush up on your Michael Jackson and Journey before heading to SmashHits, where a rendition of “Billie Jean” will help you blend in with the locals.
