Ban Kimoon appoints experts to Board of UN Register of Damage caused

The Secretary-General, in compliance with a recent resolution of the United Nations General Assembly, has appointed in their personal capacity three international experts to begin the work of establishing a register of damage caused by Israel’s construction of a wall in occupied Palestinian territory. Appointed to the Board of the United Nations Register of Damage caused by the Construction of the Wall in the occupied Palestinian territory, are: Harumi Hori of Japan, Matti Paavo Pellonpää from Finland and Michael F. Raboin of the United States. They will commence their mandated work on 14 May at the office of the United Nations Register of Damage which is being established at the United Nations Office at Vienna , the Secretary-General’s spokesperson, Michele Montas, told reporters in New York on Thursday. The Board has the overall responsibility for the establishment and maintenance of the Register of Damage. As a policymaking organ, the Board would establish the rules and regulations governing the work of the office of the Register of Damage, determine eligibility criteria, categories of damage and the procedure of registration of claims, and have the ultimate authority in determining the inclusion of damage claims in the Register of Damage. 10 May 2007The Secretary-General, in compliance with a recent resolution of the United Nations General Assembly, has appointed in their personal capacity three international experts to begin the work of establishing a register of damage caused by Israel’s construction of a wall in occupied Palestinian territory. read more

UN agency warns irrigation problems could affect Iraqs grain crop in south

Basing its preliminary assessment on reports received from national staff in Iraq, the FAO reports that in the three northern governorates of Erbil, Dohuk and Sulaimaniyah, most farmers were not displaced during the conflict and are thus well placed to begin harvesting their crops in a few weeks. But in the south, where crops depend on irrigation, loss of power to run pumping networks may cause problems.The northern governorates are expected to produce between 30 and 35 per cent of this year’s total estimated crop of 1.7 million tons of grain, the agency said in a statement in Rome. If the harvest there proceeds on schedule, it will help alleviate food shortages by producing more than 500,000 tons of wheat and barley, enough to fill at least 20,000 truckloads that would otherwise have to be imported.But the situation is less clear in the centre and south, especially in grain growing regions south of Baghdad between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, where another third of the cereal crop is cultivated. While still too early to predict the loss of the Euphrates valley crop of wheat, barley and rice, there may well be difficulties, according to FAO.Unlike the rain-fed northern crop, the south depends entirely on irrigation, which is in turn heavily reliant on electricity and fuel supply to run the pumping networks. There are similar difficulties with the spring crop of vegetables in the south, also entirely dependent on irrigation. read more

BC finance minister readies shiny old shoes for Tuesdays balanced budget

B.C. finance minister readies shiny old shoes for Tuesday’s balanced budget AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email VICTORIA – Finance Minister Mike de Jong has had an old pair of black leather shoes shined and repaired before wearing them Tuesday to introduce what he says will be the third consecutive balanced budget.De Jong held a pre-budget news conference Monday at a downtown Victoria shoe repair shop where he paid $40 to have his budget shoes polished and reheeled.He said he’ll don the spruced-up shoes for a third budget as he puts a twist on the political tradition of finance ministers wearing new footwear on budget day, the same as some of his Canadian counterparts have done in recent years.“For all three budgets, I’ve had these shoes on,” de Jong said.He said Tuesday’s budget will include a surplus higher than the $444 million forecast last fall. He said it will also include forecasts of surpluses for the next three years.De Jong said B.C. will likely be the only province in Canada to table a balanced budget this year, for which the fiscal cycle concludes on March 31, 2015.“We have something that virtually no other province is going to see, which is a balanced budget,” he said.Prince Edward Island has suggested it will table a balanced for the 2015-2016 budget year, while Quebec is aiming for a balanced budget in 2015-2016.Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall said plummeting oil prices may have recently placed his province into a deficit budget position.De Jong said B.C.’s budget will include increased spending in social services, health, education and the removal of a two-year tax on high-income earners.Two years ago, the government implemented a temporary two per cent income tax hike on people earning $150,000 or more a year to help bring the province out of deficit. De Jong said the tax earned the province about $200 million a year, and expires this year.He said health-care spending, the highest cost item in the budget, has increased but the government has kept it below three per cent. De Jong said spending hikes on education will help fund pay increases for teachers after a strike last year.“You are going to see with the little bit of room the surpluses create for us, some changes that I believe assist lower-income British Columbians in a variety of ways.”The Opposition New Democrats, social services groups and single mothers on assistance have been demanding that the government stop deducting support payments from income and disability payments. by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 16, 2015 12:46 pm MDT read more

Humanitarian crisis in Lake Chad Basin growing in dramatic fashion Security Council

‹ › At the same briefing, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Tayé-Brook Zerihoun told the Security Council that despite military operations against Boko Haram, the militant group continued to threaten security and stability in the region, as illustrated in recent attacks over the last few days. Mr. Zerihoun, however, expressed concern over alleged human rights violations, as well as breeches of humanitarian law, which reportedly accompanied Boko Haram attacks and counter-insurgency responses, including allegations of sexual violence, forced marriage and sexual slavery. “The promotion and protection of the human rights of victims of terrorism must be a priority in national responses to acts of terrorism,” he stressed, adding: “Respect for due process and prompt trials for persons detained for Boko Haram related offences, especially children, who should be treated as victims and dealt with in accordance with international standards for juvenile justice, should guide broader counter-terrorism measure.” Further, underlining that a military approach would not bring an end to Boko Haram, Mr. Zerihoun urged the affected countries to simultaneously tackle the humanitarian consequences and the root causes that led to the group’s emergence. “Military operations should be followed with stabilization measures, the restoration of state authority and addressing the social, economic and political grievances of marginalized communities,” he added.

UN Photo Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Tayé-Brook Zerihoun addressing the Security Council on the situation in the Lake Chad Basin. UN Photo “The humanitarian crisis across north-east Nigeria and parts of Cameroon, Chad and Niger, triggered by the horrendous, violent and inhuman campaign of Boko Haram, is deepening,” said UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien. He added that since his last briefing (in July 2016), the crisis had further deepened and as a consequence, more than 10.7 million people were in need of assistance. Some 2.4 million people are currently displaced, with the vast majority among them – over 1.5 million – children. On top of these challenges, the region also faces a major food and nutrition crisis and despite the response of UN and other relief organizations, the number of severely food insecure people in need of assistance rose from about three million a year back to more than 7.1 million. Updating the 15-member Council of continued efforts of UN entities, including total releases of more than $91 million from the UN Central Emergency Relief Fund (CERF), since July 2015, for lifesaving humanitarian assistance in the region, Mr. O’Brien, also the head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which manages the Fund, appealed for continued and increased support from donors. “In spite of all the assistance going in today, it is clear that the range of forecasts that this situation may get even worse and the numbers in need still climb,” he added, noting that the 2017 humanitarian response plan and appeal for the Lake Chad Basin had doubled compared to the 2016 one to $1.5 billion reflecting the deteriorating situation in the region. read more

UN Security Council calls for calm following violent protests in Haiti

In a statement issued on Thursday, the Council condemned “all acts of violence and attacks on civilians, which have resulted in several deaths, and expressed their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of those killed.” The initial policy change sparked widespread looting in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and other cities over the weekend, during which at least three were killed, and all international flights were cancelled.Even though the Haitian Government backed away from the price hike on Saturday, and flights have resumed, protesters continued to clash with police on Monday, according to news reports.The Council statement called for the immediate cessation of all forms of violence and for those responsible for crimes to be held accountable.Council Members called on “all parties in Haiti to remain calm, exercise restraint, and to avoid acts that could contribute to instability,” underlining the importance of “respecting the rule of law and democratic order and not resorting to violence or criminal activity.” The Council also expressed support for the Government “to work with all key actors to quickly restore order, ensure the security of people and property, and overcome the challenges faced by the country.”      Its members recognized the important role of the Haitian National Police, with support from the UN Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH), in protecting the civilian population and maintaining public order.MINUJUSTH called for “constructive dialogue” to restore security in the capital Port-au-Prince.“The members of the Security Council reiterated their support for MINUJUSTH, working closely with the UN Country Team, in assisting the Government and the people of Haiti in their efforts to consolidate the security gains made in recent years, to promote the rule of law, and to bring lasting stability to their country,” the Council statement concluded. read more

Dramatic arts prof interviewed on national radio

Karen Fricker, assistant professor of Dramatic Arts, was inteviewed on CBC Radio’s Q Monday morning. A Brock University dramatic arts professor was interviewed on national radio about the current state of affairs of entertainment giant Cirque du Soleil.Karen Fricker was a guest Monday on CBC Radio’s Q, a daily arts and culture magazine. The assistant professor talked about the implications of Montreal-based Cirque du Soleil’s recent announcement that it was laying off 400 people.“This is significant because Cirque du Soleil is a very strong brand and usually the coverage around it is positive,” Fricker said.The segment of the show, hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, looked at whether the company was in crisis and if the layoffs meant the end of a Canadian success story made world famous for its performances that incorporate gravity-defying acrobatics and stunning choreography.From Fricker’s perspective, Cirque du Soleil isn’t going anywhere but it has grown at an unsustainable rate.The company has even admitted to not having appropriate control over its spending.“That’s an important admission,” Fricker said. “They’re making money but they’re spending too much and (cutting jobs) is a line in the sand, a signal their practices need to change .”Fricker was joined by J. Kelly Nestruck, a theatre critic for the Globe and Mail, on the show.The segment will air again Monday night on CBC Radio One at 10 p.m. and can be heard online or as a podcast. read more

Whiteball contracts for West Indies players

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedGuyana’s Shimron Hetmeyer, Keemo Paul among 7 new players offered contracts by CWIJuly 9, 2019In “latest news”Historic contract offer for Windies playersJanuary 29, 2018In “latest news”Kemar Roach gets all-format West Indies contractOctober 2, 2018In “latest news” “However the logic behind those is – Carlos, although he is not in ODI team, is our T20 captain, Jason [Mohammed] is the ODI vice-captain and Nurse has performed well this year in limited-overs cricket. Evin, Rovman and Kesrick are upcoming players. We want to offer incentives to want to play and be loyal to West Indies and not T20s leagues, which, for good reason, are already after their talents.”None of West Indies’ high-profile players have been offered contracts yet. Chris Gayle, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Dwayne Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Samuel Badree and Darren Sammy will all be offered pro-rata contracts based on their performances in the upcoming series in the short term.“Sammy and Bravos don’t play for West Indies at the moment, so we can’t offer contracts to people who are not in the team,” Grave said. “Pollard, Narine and Badree are only in the T20 team, (and) white-ball contracts are for those who play ODIs and T20s. It’s a view of the selectors that both Pollard and Narine have to show form in the Regional Super50 one-day competition to regain selection in the ODI team. If they play that tournament and perform I don’t see why they wouldn’t get recalled.“Obviously post amnesty, Gayle and Marlon played in England, if we had won the series and they had made lots of runs, they probably would have got contracts. So I think the selectors want to see them in New Zealand, Super50 and World Cup Qualifiers, but I suspect at some stage in 2018 they will get contracts given the new system,” Grave said.Grave is currently in Auckland to meet the West Indies players to explain the details of the various contracts and address their concerns. Both Grave and Adams agreed with the selectors that the main priority is for West Indies to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, and players will need to commit to that task ahead of T20 tournaments like the Big Bash League and the Pakistan Super League. The Big Bash League starts from December 19 and runs till February 4. The PSL will begin from February 22. Joel Garner presents Sunil Ambris with his Test cap (Getty Images)(ESPNcricinfo) West Indies players will be offered more flexible and enhanced contracts, including exclusive retainers for Test and limited-overs cricket, according to a new Cricket West Indies policy.The highest-paid category will be for players who feature in Tests and ODIs, with a maximum retainer of over US $300,000 including match fees. The four-man selection panel, led by Courtney Browne, has shortlisted players for every category, which is expected to be made public soon.The new contract policy is one of CWI CEO Johnny Grave’s visions for the board, along with the previously-announced amnesty. The policy has three levels, and will initially last for nine months. The new contracts will be offered on July 1, 2018, at the same time as the domestic retainer contracts.The contracts have been split into three categories. Category A will comprise players who play predominantly Tests and ODIs. Category B will be for only Test players, while Category C will cover players featuring in only ODIs and T20s.ESPNcricinfo understands six players have been offered first batch of white-ball contracts (Category C): Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Mohammed, Evin Lewis, Rovman Powell, Ashley Nurse and Kesrick Williams.According to Grave, CWI will keep player remuneration private and confidential. He also highlighted that a player contracted in Category A can earn over US $300,000, independent of domestic T20 deals, while players in other contract categories will also stand to earn six-figure retainers.ESPNcricinfo believes the dollar value of the new retainers are more than double the previous highest-earning contracts that have been offered to players in the past three years following the abandoned 2014 tour to India.Under the previous contract arrangement, players were contracted for one year only. A category A contract was worth US $140,000, Category B US $120,000 and Category C US $100,000, with highly reduced match retainers that were redirected to pay domestic players in the revamped Professional Cricket League.Although CWI has not confirmed this, it is understood that individual match fees for ODIs and T20s (reduced after the 2014 abandonment to US $2500 and US $1500), will now be US $5000 and US $2500 per match respectively.Grave said that another significant decision CWI was taking was extending the existing Memorandum of Understanding with the West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) by another year. “The first thing we did was extend the CWI-WIPA MoU by one year until the end of the 2019 World Cup cycle”, Grave told ESPNcricinfo. “While the overall aim was to create flexible contracts, when I realised the MoU was ending in 2018, but yet our television and sponsorship deals were ending in 2019, it made sense to extend it and link our major revenues with WIPA.”Grave further explained why only six players received Category C contracts, highlighting they were solely chosen by the selection panel. “I create paper work and numbers, selectors chose those to award contracts. Jimmy (Jimmy Adams, CWI director of cricket) and I weren’t involved in that.Evin Lewis made his second one-day hundred (Getty Images) The Regional Super50 falls between the BBL and the PSL – from January 31 to February 24, ending a week before the World Cup Qualifiers, scheduled to begin on March 2.Grave said CWI will be as flexible as possible in allowing players to play T20 Leagues, but the priority must be to play for West Indies. “Considering the importance of Qualifiers right now, that will take priority over a player’s individual needs, so I’d imagine if players seriously want to be part of World Cup plans they will play Super50.”According to Grave, the amnesty will soon lapse, and the players will be told about the minimum number of domestic matches they are expected to play in order to qualify to play for West Indies. “The amnesty will be replaced by a technical committee which will work out eligibility criteria,” Grave said. “The meeting probably will happen either before Christmas or early in the new year. And I would be surprised if they suggested anything else other than players have to play Super50.” read more

Boris Johnson tries to reassure on Brexit as pound slumps

first_imgLONDON: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Wales on Tuesday as part of a national tour intended to reassure Britons that his hard-Brexit push won’t hurt the economy and rip apart the U.K. Currency markets were far from reassured, however, as the pound slid to a new 28-month low. And Johnson faced a tough reception from farmers — a group central to the Welsh economy — who fear economic havoc if Britain leaves the European Union without a divorce deal. They say millions of sheep might have to be slaughtered if tariffs are slapped on lamb exports to the EU. Also Read – Climate change: Australia downgrades outlook for Great Barrier Reef to ‘very poor’ Advertise With Us “The bottom line is we’re exporting 40% of our sheep production, we are the second-largest producer of sheep meat in the world, so if we are priced … we’re tariffed out of the EU market, where does that 40% go?” said Minette Batters, president of the National Farmers Union. The government argues that leaving the 28-nation bloc and its rules-bound Common Agricultural Policy will be “a historic opportunity to introduce new schemes to support farming” and will open up new markets for U.K. agricultural exports. Also Read – Bringing nuclear test ban treaty into force central for global disarmament push: UN chief Advertise With Us The government’s Wales Secretary Alun Cairns said “90% of global growth will come from outside of the EU.” However, trade with the EU accounts for almost half of all British exports, and any new trade deals are years away. The trip follows a visit Monday to Scotland, where Johnson was booed by protesters and warned by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that his vow to take Britain out of the EU on Oct. 31, with or without a deal, was “dangerous.” Advertise With Us Britain’s 2016 vote to leave the EU divided the country and also strained the bonds among the four nations that make up the U.K.: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. A majority of voters in England and Wales backed leaving in the referendum, while Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain. That has emboldened Scotland’s nationalist government to demand a vote on independence, arguing that Scotland should not be forced out of the EU against its will. In Parliament last week, Scottish National Party lawmaker Ian Blackford mockingly welcomed Johnson as “the last prime minister of the United Kingdom.” Johnson also plans a visit to Northern Ireland, the only part of the U.K. to share a land border with the EU. The status of that currently invisible frontier with the Republic of Ireland has become the main stumbling block to a Brexit deal. The pound has fallen sharply in recent days as businesses warn that no amount of preparation can eliminate the economic damage if Britain crashes out of the 28-nation trading bloc without agreement on the terms. The currency fell early Tuesday to $1.2120, its lowest value since March 2017. Fiona Cincotta, senior market analyst at City Index, said sterling had lost 4.3% of its value since the beginning of July. “Investors’ main concern remains a hard no-deal Brexit which has the potential to pull the economy into chaos,” she said. “Boris Johnson’s new cabinet did little to alleviate those fears, taking a hard-line with Europe on forthcoming negotiations.” Johnson became prime minister last week after winning a Conservative Party leadership contest by promising the strongly pro-Brexit party membership that the U.K. will leave the EU on the scheduled date of Oct. 31, with or without a divorce deal. The EU struck a withdrawal agreement with Johnson’s predecessor, Theresa May, but it was rejected three times by Britain’s Parliament. Johnson is insisting the bloc make major changes to May’s spurned deal, including scrapping an insurance policy for the Irish border that has been rejected by U.K. lawmakers. The EU insists it won’t reopen the 585-page withdrawal agreement it spent two years negotiating with May’s government. Johnson’s government has been accused of sending mixed messages on Brexit that have unsettled markets. Michael Gove, who heads a new Brexit delivery committee in Cabinet, has said the government is “operating on the assumption” that the U.K. will leave without a deal. But Johnson — who just weeks ago put the odds of leaving without a divorce agreement at a million to one — said Monday he was “very confident” of getting a new deal. There are currently no new negotiations planned between Britain and the bloc.last_img read more

Blizzard makes Diablo III require an internet connection

first_imgAnyone who loves Blizzard for the previous two Diablo games may just start to hate them after reading this news about the highly-anticipated Diablo III.Remember how Ubisoft has managed to upset just about every gamer on the planet by requiring an always-connected machine to play its PC games? Well, Blizzard is doing the exact same thing with Diablo III. That’s right Diablo fans, if you want to play you need a solid internet connection. Offline play is just not an option.If you want a reason as to why this decision has been made, Blizzard is happy to provide you with two. The first is of course piracy, which they believe an always-connected game will limit. The second is down to providing a fair game on is not allowing any mods in Diablo III and doesn’t want any cheats being used either. The developer states the only way to control this is with a game they can guarantee isn’t running any such additional software. Keeping you online during play apparently solves that problem and means whatever level your character is, is a true representation of the time you have spent in the game, not some mod or cheat working overtime in the background.The final bit of news that has appeared about the game is that buying it might not be the end of your spending. The auction house included in the game will accept real money for buying items as well as allowing you to sell them. Blizzard’s reason for including this is for those gamers who have, “more money than time.”Has Blizzard just made three huge mistakes, or is this what needs to happen for PC gaming to survive? I can imagine a few pre-orders have been cancelled already, and have to question the logic behind what Blizzard is doing here.Diablo has a massive following, yet removing mods, requiring a connection, and introducing cash to the game to get ahead all seem like steps that will turn fans off rather than building excitement for the release.Read more at Rock, Paper Shotgunlast_img read more

While competing against some of the most finely tuned dog athletes in the world in what amounts to the dog show equivalent of the NFL Combine, Katu didn’t steal the show with a blazing time, but because he decided to do just about whatever the hell he wanted, instead.Hiding in the little dog tunnel, check.

Temps beautiful but demanding crossplatform weather program

first_imgTemps: beautiful but demanding cross-platform weather program by Martin Brinkmann on January 30, 2017 in Software – 14 commentsTemps is a cross-platform weather program for Windows, Linux and Mac that is beautiful, but eats more RAM in Megabyte than there are rainy days in England.So, if RAM is not an issue on your device, you may read on if you are interested in a new weather application.You may notice that Temps is a demanding application right when you start the 50 Megabyte download from the developer site. The 64-bit version for Windows has a size of more than 130 Megabytes unpacked which is gargantuan for a weather app.The application is portable, and you may run it from any location though; so that is good and useful.TempsWhen you run Temps, you may notice two things. First, it requires an Internet connection to download weather information, and that it won’t necessarily identify your current location correctly.The data is pulled from OpenWeatherMap, and it uses a default API key on first start. The author notes that you may want to grab your own API key from the service — the free version is sufficient — so that you don’t run into situations where too many users of the program try to download data from the service at once.Next thing you may want to do is open the Settings of the program to change the location. Most cities and countries are identified correctly, so enter London, UK for instance to set the location to London, and have Temps download weather information for that location.There are a couple of additional options available there. If you are from the US, you may switch from Celsius to Fahrenheit, and from the default 24 hour format to the 12 hour format.Also, you may disable auto-start with the operating system, and disable showing the current weather as the program icon by default.Weather information is limited to the current day, and the next four days. The app displays the temperature, and weather conditions (sunny, light rain, light intensity drizzle rain..), and a temperature graph for any of the four next days.That’s all there is to it right now.As far as memory usage is concerned, it is quite high. Temps ran three processes on a Windows 10 64-bit test system on start which used more than 230 Megabytes of memory.Alternative: check out our overview of the best weather programs for Windows.Temps uses Electron which explains its size and memory hunger.Closing WordsTemps is a beautiful minimalist weather application. It is resource hungry on the other hand, and it lacks information such as wind speed, humidity, or sunrise/sunset information that other weather apps offer.Again, it is a beautiful program, but its resource requirements probably make it unattractive for the majority of users.Now You: Do you use a weather application?Summary12345 Author Rating0.5 based on 3 votes Software Name TempsSoftware Category InformationLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

12 Confront a giant robot on Odaiba Island OK so

first_img12. Confront a giant robot on Odaiba IslandOK, so technically it’s not a robot. This 1:1 scale reconstruction is of one of the ‘mobile suits’ from the Gundam franchise – fans gets annoyed if you call them robots. But whatever it’s called, it looks damn impressive – and it moves and lights up, too. The 18 metre tall mobile suit stands outside Gundam Front Tokyo, a huge exhibition dedicated to all things Gundam. The franchise kicked off with an anime in 1979 and is often referred to as Japan’s Star Wars, such is its enduring popularity. The exhibition here might leave Western visitors puzzled, but it’s worth paying a visit to Odaiba Island just to see the ‘robot’ do its thing (see show times here). If you’re not into tech, there’s always shopping – Odaiba is home to several enormous shopping malls, including Aqua City, DiverCity and Venus Fort, which is designed to look like a medieval European village. 11. Eat okonomiyakiOkonomiyaki is Japan’s greatest culinary secret. Whereas sushi, teriyaki and various other Japanese dishes have become commonplace across the world, few people know about okonomiyaki outside Japan. It’s sort of an omelette with cabbage in combination with various different ingredients of your choosing, such as pork or prawns. The mix is brought to your table raw before the waiter cooks it in front of you on a grill built into the table. Once cooked, it’s topped with Japanese mayonnaise, special okonomiyaki sauce, seaweed sprinkles and katsuobushi, which are wafer-thin fish flakes that ‘dance’ in the heat of the food. There are loads of great okonomiyaki restaurants in Tokyo, but Sometaro in Asakusa is very traditional and one of the best. 3. Tokyo SkytreeGetting up high is one of the best things to do in Tokyo if you want to truly appreciate the vastness of the city – as well as gain some respite from the crowds. The Tokyo Tower, a 333 metre tall communications tower, used to be the highest structure in Japan, but in 2011 it was surpassed by the Tokyo Skytree, which at a whopping 634 metres is the second tallest structure in the world after Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. The Skytree has a café at 350 metres, which is ideal if you want a tea or coffee BUT REALLY HIGH UP, and it also boasts a frankly terrifying glass floor in one section. The downside is that the Skytree is quite far from the centre of town, and there’s a charge to climb it; the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, on the other hand, is right in the centre of town and its observation decks are free, even if they’re ‘only’ a paltry 202 metres high.Opening times: Daily, 8am – 9pm.Location: 1 Chome-1-2 Oshiage, Sumida.Price: (Tembo Deck, 350m) Adults ¥2060, Children 12 – 17yrs ¥1540, 6 – 11 ¥930. Extra for the Tembo Galleria (450m). 2. Check out the cosplayers on Jingu-bashi BridgeJingu-bashi bridge, just in front of Yoyogi Park in Harajuku, is the place to go to see kids in ‘cosplay’ in which people dress up as their favourite characters and one of the quintessential Tokyo sights. They tend to be there on a Sunday and they’ll happily pose for a photo – but do ask first as it’s generally considered rude to take a photo without asking. If you head into the park itself, you can often see groups of rockabilly dancers, complete with leather jackets and 1950s quiffs, along with various teenagers parading the latest Harajuku fashions. The scene has died down a little bit in recent years but don’t worry if you can’t find any fashionable young things to photograph – the park itself is well worth the trip alone, providing a welcome splash of green in an ocean of steel. 8. Senso-jiThere are hundreds of temples and shrines in and around Tokyo, but the most striking is probably the bright red Senso-ji in Asakusa, which dates from 645 (although it has been rebuilt several times). The picturesque ‘Thunder Gate’ (Kaminarimon) at the entrance, with its huge paper lantern, is one of the most famous images of Tokyo.Opening times: Daily, 6am – 5pm (opens at 6.30am Oct to March). Location: Asakusa (Asakusa Station is 5 minutes away on foot). Price: Free. 6. Get up early for Tsukuji fish marketIf you’ve seen the fascinating documentary film Jiro Dreams of Sushi you’ll already be familiar with the famous Tsukiji fish market. The tuna auction is one of the most spectacular if unusual Tokyo attractions and the market has an air of organised chaos, as people scamper to and fro with bundles of unfamiliar sea creatures, while others use band saws to slice up enormous frozen fish. You’ll need an early start to catch the action though – registration for the auctions takes place at 5am, and it’s pretty much over by nine. 10. Tackle the Shibuya street crossingThis famous pedestrian crossing in Shibuya – the busiest in the world – gives you an idea of just how many people live in Tokyo. At peak times, 2,500 people an hour cross the road here in five different directions making for fascinating, if disorientating, viewing. There’s a well-placed Starbucks on the corner with an upper floor that provides a great view of the spectacle – if you can grab a seat, that is. Look out for the statue of a dog called Hachiko on the opposite corner: this faithful dog greeted his owner at Shibuya station every day as the man returned from work and, even after his owner died suddenly of a brain haemorrhage in 1925, Hachiko continued to come to the station every day for the next nine years hoping to see his master return. 4. Hit the sky barsIf you’d rather keep things classy, head to the Sky Bar on the 45th floor of the five-star Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku and order one of their amazing cocktails. Or even better, follow in the footsteps of Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson by dining at the New York Bar of the Park Hyatt Hotel, as featured in the film Lost in Translation. Neither option comes cheap, but who can put a price on style? Fans of dining at height should take a look at this list of the best skyscraper restaurants in London.5. Eat sushi delivered by a robot trainYou’re no doubt familiar with the concept of kaiten-zushi (conveyor belt sushi), which has existed in Japan for decades – since 1958 in fact. But now the Japanese have taken it to the next level. The latest generation of kaiten-zushi restaurants – a prime example of which is Genki Sushi in Shibuya – now let you order your food from a touch screen. Then, just a few minutes later, your order shoots out from the kitchen on a tiny robot train that parks directly in front of you with a cheery beep. Amazing. And what’s more, it’s remarkably cheap!center_img 7. AkihabaraAkihabara is the place to be for crazy electronics shops, arcades and toy shops. You could easily spend a whole afternoon or more wandering around them and you’ll be amazed at how many bizarre figurines you can buy. Most arcades and shops tend to be about five or six floors high, each level a warren of games, toys and weird stuff. And while you’re there, try eating at Mos Burger, the Japanese answer to McDonalds, which offers burger buns made of rice. Search for flights to TokyoIs there anything we’ve missed off our list? Let us know your favourite things to see and do in Tokyo in the comments at the bottom.1. Tokyo Imperial PalaceThe Imperial Palace is the official residence of the Emperor of Japan and the former location of Edo Castle. In 1867, the Tokugawa Shogunate came to an end, and with it the period in which Japan was ruled by feuding warlords. Power transferred to the Emperor, who moved from Kyoto to the city that was then known as Edo, but which was subsequently renamed Tokyo, meaning ‘Eastern Capital’ – and Tokyo has remained the capital of Japan ever since. Damaged during the Second World War, little remains of the original Edo Castle, but one of the palace’s most picturesque spots gives a fine view of an original seventeenth century watchtower: by the dual bridges of Nijūbashi, the tiered towers of Fujimi-yagura hang serenely above the water. Much of the palace is closed to the public, although the area around Fujimi-yagura – known as Higashi Gyoen (East Garden) – is a public park that’s free to wander. But if you want a peak behind the palace’s impressive granite walls, you’ll need to book onto an official tour at least a month in advance (tours are in Japanese but English audio guides are available free of charge). If you’re a fan of ancient seats of power, take a look at our guide to the UK’s best castles.Opening times: (East Gardens) (Mar to Oct) Daily except Mon & Fri, 9am – 4.30pm. (Nov to Feb) 9am – 4pm.Location: Chiyoda. The palace complex has five gates; the easiest to enter is Otemachi gate, close to Otemachi subway station.Price: Free. 13. Roppongi HillsAnother of Tokyo’s sky-high attractions, this multi-tower complex actually combines enough sights and things to do to keep you going for a full day. There’s the Mori Museum and Art Gallery, showcasing temporary loans from important European collections, as well as the best in Japanese design, architecture, photography, video and fashion. Many floors above, take a look at the observatory and skydeck, from where you can see all the classic Tokyo landmarks, including Tokyo Tower and as far as Mount Fuji. In addition, the building hosts a hotel, cinema, shops and restaurants, aiming to be the ‘cultural heart’ of the city. A lucky few even live here, at the Hollywood-esque Roppongi Hills Residences.Opening times and prices Vary according to attraction. See the website for details.Location: 6 Chome-11-1 Roppongi.14. Rainbow BridgeThis arching suspension bridge is so-named for its shape, although the changing night-time illuminations are definitely worthy of a rainbow. The bridge is a part of daily life to the thousands of Tokyo commuters who cross it every day, but it’s a sight worth seeing for visitors, especially as you can walk across at sunset (or sunrise, if you’re up to it!) and admire a full panorama across the shimmering skyline and city harbour. There’s also a Starbucks at Aqua City Mall on Odaiba Island from where you can admire the view and get the bridge into your holiday snaps, as well. 9. Yasukuni ShrineIf you’re looking for controversy, there’s always the Yasukuni Shrine. The building is a huge source of tension with China because it honours Japanese war dead, including war criminals. The museum next door is even more contentious, featuring a revisionist history of the Second World War that paints the USA as the aggressor. It certainly makes for a memorable visit.Opening times: (Shrine) Daily, 6am – 6pm (closes at 5pm Nov to Feb). (Yushukan Museum) 9am – 4.30pm.Location: 3 Chome-1-1 Kudankita, Chiyoda. Price: (Shrine) Free. (Yushukan Museum) ¥800. How to get to TokyoNon-stop flights to Tokyo leave from London Heathrow daily, with British Airways and Japan Airlines. You might be able to find cheaper deals with Vietnam Airlines, making a stop in Hanoi, or Phillipine Airlines, stopping in Manilla.Tokyo has two major international airports, Haneda and Narita, and airlines flying from the UK use both. Haneda Airport is much more convenient for Tokyo, however, as it’s only 15km from the city centre, whereas Narita Airport is 65km from Tokyo with the journey usually taking 40 minutes to an hour.Ready to plan your trip?

Fuji Five LakesYou don’t have to be an avid climber to enjoy one of the world’s most famous peaks: there are plenty of opportunities to see Mount Fuji within a couple hours of Tokyo. Fuji Five Lakes is the name of the area at the mountain’s base, home to resorts and theme parks, as well as the most popular starting point for hikers tackling the mountain. It’s also a great place to sit back and admire the mist-laden backdrop from the comfort of an outdoor hot spring at Lake Kawaguchiko. The lake is particularly photogenic in autumn and spring, when clouds of cherry blossoms line the shores. Buses go to Kawaguchiko Station from Tokyo and at just under two hours journey time, works out quicker and more direct than the trains. Want more outdoor action and stunning views?
