Join Tokyo-based travel expert Mandy Bartok as we travel through Tokyo's vibrant and distinct neighborhoods, uncovering the stories of a city that spans generations. Hear tips and tales suited for both actual and armchair travelers alike.

Tokyo, the capital of Japan, provides endless fascination for both first-time and returning travelers. Kimono-clad women still shuffle past salarymen in suits on the city's crowded streets. Hints of the country's feudal past defy the soaring skyscrapers of a "downtown" that's ever-expanding and in flux. Tokyo, a city of 13 million people, is at once centuries-old and cutting edge, staunchly traditional but also barreling headlong into the 21st century.

In this seminar and virtual tour, we'll explore some of Tokyo's top neighborhoods for travelers, while also venturing into some lesser-known, but highly recommended areas. We'll glimpse Tokyo through the seasons, and tempt our taste buds with an introduction to some truly Tokyo-based foods. We'll share stories of fishermen and famous canines, sumo wrestlers, and sakura (cherry blossom) lore.

Led by travel expert and Tokyo tour guide Mandy Bartok, this interactive seminar will introduce you to the highlights of the vibrant city of Tokyo. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased appreciation of the unique neighborhoods, history, and food culture of Japan's unmissable capital city.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
