Favorite thing: If you are just a tourist, the answer is no. Because the souvenirs and the transportation is not as expensive than other places. But if you want to buy a flat or rent an apartment, maybe it is.
It depends on your budget, of course.
We went three times to Japan and we stayed in a very convinient ryokan in Tokyo very cheap.
But if you want to buy Hermes or something... prepare your wallet.
And eating is also very cheap if you choose well. You can eat gyoza and noodles all over the city from very good prices.
Enjoy your visit!!

Favorite thing: One of the advantages of taking the JR rail train from Narita Airport to Tokyo is that you can enjoy nice scenery along this 80 minute journey. The train will pass by flat farmland, as well as several small towns (including Narita itself) before slowly arriving at the skyscraper city of Tokyo which is of contrast to the small towns. More information is at the transportation section of this VT page.

Favorite thing: One of the charms about Tokyo is that you can find new and modern skyscrapers in existence side by side to historical buildings such as shrines, temples etc. For example, the Zozoji Shrine is situated near to the Tokyo Tower, and the shrines of Yoyoji Park are also flanked by nearby tall buildings.

Favorite thing: Although Tokyo is a highly populated and concrete jungle, there are still many beautiful parks in the city area with beautiful trees and flowers. One of my fondest memories of Tokyo are the beautiful flowers in the parks, as well as the colourful foliage colours of autumn.

Favorite thing: One of the best seasons to visit Tokyo must be in autumn when the days are generally clear with nice cooling weather, and of course the colourful autumn leaves. One thing to note is that the colourful autumn leaves in Tokyo are at their best during mid-November to mid-December, which is a bit late as compared to many other places around the world. You can check out the website below for the best autumn viewing period in Tokyo and surroundings:

Favorite thing: Tokyo Bay is a huge bay in the southern Kanto region of Japan, surrounded by the Boso Peninsula (Chiba Prefecture) and the Miura Peninsula (Kanagawa Prefecture). The ports of Tokyo, Chiba, Kawasaki, Yokohama, and Yokosuka are all located on Tokyo Bay. On the western coast of Tokyo Bay, between Tokyo and Yokohama, the Keihin Industrial Area has been developed since the Meiji Era. This was expanded to the Keiyo Industrial Area along the north and east coasts after World War II. More photographs of Tokyo Bay are at the travelogue section of this VT page.

Favorite thing: People coming to Tokyo would not probably think of cakes and sweets, but truth be told the Japanese have a sweet tooth. You can try all sorts of traditional sweet treats, but also be sure to try the more modern favourites... the cakes and cream puffs, mousses and tarts. You'll find amazing treats in the basements of major department stores and also a number of chain cake stores around the major cities (these are generally cheaper and not as good however).
In my Tokyo-to restaurants hints I have a hint on a truly amazing cake shop in Ueno-Sakuragi. The picture for this tip is a cake from that cake shop. The line is long ever day so if you are going to try that one go early or be prepared to wait. It's worth the wait!!
