Tokyo is filled incredible New Year's Eve parties and countdown celebrations. You can choose to brave the crowds at Shibuya Crossing, dance all night at the clubs, or do something more cultured like visiting the shrines for the first prayer of the new year and partaking in a spritual bell-ringing ritual at the temples.

So put on your warmest clothes and head out into the cold – it will be more than worth it. Here are our top picks of NYE celebrations, and if you're still standing after all the countdown and dancing, continue on to catch first sunrise of 2020. Take your pick from our list below and get ready to say goodbye to 2019 in style.
