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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chidorigafuchi and Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings. Go for a jaunt from Tokyo to Maihama to see Tokyo Disneyland about 38 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, and take a stroll through Odaiba District.

To find ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip itinerary planner.
