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.

There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senso-ji Temple, make a trip to Tokyo Skytree, and enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.
