Tokyo

The capital of the Land of the Rising Sun

Tokyo has a rich cultural history where innovation meets tradition, whilst also being at the forefront of fashion and technology.

The flight from Auckland to Tokyo takes around 11 hours. Contact your local Global Travel Network Agent to find the best possible airfares and suggestions to design your ideal holiday.

The dynamic Japanese capital city has so much to offer, whether you would like to learn about its rich cultural heritage by visiting Shrines and Temples and Museums. Or experiencing Cherry Blossom viewing which takes place in Spring, from March until May when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom. The first week of April is the best time for viewing in Tokyo. The best way to get around is by train as Tokyo boasts one of the best public transport systems in the world and very little chance of train running late.

A visit to Akihabara, Tokyo’s Electric Town is a must if you are interested in tech gear or the latest digital devices, however it could get expensive with so many shops to explore. Tokyo is often the setting for Japanese movies, TV shows, animated series (Anime), comics and video games. Sampling the Tokyo Street Food is an experience and once you have tried sushi, ramen and tempura, try something different. Try Monjayaki, a pancake style dish which is unique to Tokyo topped with either squid or shrimp or pork.

If you have a chance, attend a Sumo Tournament, this is the best way to experience Japan’s official National Sport or if you are interested in fashion visit the vibrant Harajuku neighbourhood. Known as the centre of Japanese youth culture and fashion as well as its street art. Discover quirky vintage clothing stores along Takeshita Street and venture into the small bars and trendy cafes in the surrounding lanes.

 

A truly outstanding independent travel agency group and ticketing consolidator and one I am so proud to work alongside. The team at GTN are knowledgeable, helpful and just generally interested in your business success and offer support where others have failed. Highly recommend!

The Consolidation team at GTN are excellent to deal with.  They are efficient and friendly, and when there has been queries with airlines or airfares, they have always sought answers and found solutions to the problem wherever possible.  The QuikTravel system is easy to use, as well as the additional information on the system around commissions, airline contacts, policies, as well as the summary of recent changes in fares & rules from airlines.  GTN is an excellent partner, and the small personal nature of the team is a good fit for our business

We have been with the GTN team since they first started and they are professional, caring, willing to assist with any query and will go above and beyond to find fares to suit, even when we have the most ridiculous of destinations. Even in the hardest of times, they reach out to each and every one of their agents to make sure we are ok. Thanks for your ongoing support team.
