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.
When in Tokyo, make a side trip to see Tokyo DisneySea in Urayasu, approximately 30 minutes away. Have a day of magic on the 23rd (Sun) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, get a sense of history and politics at Imperial Palace, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower.

To find photos, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip itinerary maker app .
