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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Senso-ji Temple and Imperial Palace. Get some cultural insight at Edo-Tokyo Museum and Tokyo National Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Kamakura (Hase-dera Temple, Kōtoku-in, &more) and Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, take a stroll through Ginza, and take in the exciting artwork at Art Jeunesse Akihabara.
