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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Yomiuri Land and Hozomon. Family-friendly places like Subway Museum and Yamanashi Prefectural Maglev Exhibition Center will thrill your kids.

There's still lots to do: visit a coastal fixture at Enoshima Sea Candle, get curious at Tsukuba Space Center, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Chiba Zoological Park, and trek along Kamakura Hiking Trails.
