I loved it. Technologically advanced but still old fashioned at the same time. Many things to see and experience and there is something for everyone. Old temples and shrine, a little bit of history and many shopping places. There are themed restaurants and cafes, modern world cousin and traditional japanese (far more than just sushi).
