Pro Nearly flawless transportation system
Trains are on time to the minute, and delays of more than a minute are rare and frowned upon by the transportation agency, the news, and the public. Trains will take you literally anywhere and everywhere in Tokyo and all of Japan.
Pro Diverse, affordable, and consistently quality restaurants
Everyone in Tokyo is a foodie. The high demands of consumers have created one of the most competitive restaurant scenes in the world.
Rarely is there trash on the streets. Any party overflows are cleaned up overnight.
Con Occasional earthquakes
Tokyo, like the rest of Japan, lies on the Ring of Fire and is prone to fairly regular earthquakes. Most are small, but once in a while, residents do get shaken up by a slightly larger one. Most of the buildings are built to withstand earthquakes up to a magnitude 8.
Con Peak-hour trains are crammed
Rush hour trains are extremely, extremely crammed. You will likely not need to hold on to anything, because everything will be squeezed in.
