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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Pola Museum of Art and Gallery Marusan. Popular historic sites such as Hase-dera Temple and Zojo-ji Temple are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Mt. Kumotori (in Okutama-machi), Enoshima Island (in Fujisawa) and Katabira-gawa Shinsui Ryokudo (in Yokohama). There's much more to do: make a trip to Naritasan Shinsho-ji Temple, examine the collection at Samurai Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Yokohama Minato Mirai 21, and explore the galleries of Tokyo National Museum.
