It's time to get excited – the spring holiday season is finally here. In Tokyo, Golden Week always offers a bonanza of great things to do, from food festivals and traditional matsuri to the Rainbow Pride parade, outdoor music festivals and unmissable art shows, while there's plenty going on just outside of the city as well. So forget about that package tour to Hawaii (or bus trip to Atami) and make the most of this year's extra-long Golden Week in Tokyo.
