“Because of its wide variety of attractions, Tokyo should be able to retain tourists for an average of 3 to 4 days.

“In promoting Tokyo, emphasis should be placed on the following: Energetic people and crowded streets, the Ginza, stores and shopping, the Imperial Palace (particularly as a symbol), the food market and the food center near the Ginza, nightclubs outside the Ginza, the colorful and exciting Korakuen Sports Center, large musical shows, and the Kabuki and Noh theaters.”
