Tokyo

— 7 nights
Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Kids will enjoy Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi) and Lake Ashinoko (in Hakone-machi). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, admire the striking features of Tokyo Skytree, ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace, and get your game on at Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou.
