You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Maihama (Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Tokyo Tower, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, get engrossed in the history at Edo-Tokyo Museum, and visit Odaiba District.
