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.
Explore hidden gems such as Sky Garden and Yokohama Intl Passenger Terminal. Venture out of the city with trips to Kawasaki Daishi (in Kawasaki), NYK Hikawamaru (in Yokohama) and Yokohama Landmark Tower (in Minatomirai). The adventure continues: make a trip to Tokyo Tower, contemplate the long history of Kiunkaku, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo International Airport (Haneda) Terminal No2 Observation Deck, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Arakura Fuji Sengen Jinja.

One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Everland and The Garden of Morning Calm. Change things up with a short trip to Songdo Central Park in Incheon (about 1h 15 min away). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Gyeongbokgung Palace, don't miss a visit to Ewha Womans University, appreciate the extensive heritage of Changgyeonggung Palace, and see the interesting displays at Trickeye Museum Seoul.
