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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Ueno and Pola Museum of Art. Museum-lovers will get to explore KidZania Tokyo and Fujiko F Fujio Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Yugawara Beach (in Yugawara-machi), Yokohama Nature Sanctuary (in Sakae) and Kamakura (Kencho-ji Temple, Meigetsuin (Hydrangea Temple), & more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Asakusa Shrine, make a trip to Nezu Shrine, wander the streets of Yanaka, and shop like a local with Kitchen Town (Kappabashi).

To find photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Tokyo trip planning tool .

A modern, bustling city known for its beer brewery, Sapporo attracts millions of visitors with its Snow Festival, during which elaborate ice and snow sculptures are exhibited all over town.
Visit Fushimi Inari Shrine and Hakko Gakuen Kuribayashi Memorial Hall for their historical value. Kids will enjoy Campana Rokkatei and Kokuei Takino Suzuran Hillside National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Furusato Beach (in Tomakomai), Otaru-shi General Museum (in Otaru) and Shinsennuma (in Kyowa-cho). There's much more to do: take in the natural beauty of Oyunumagawa Natural Footbath, walk around Asahiyama Kinen Koen, examine the collection at The Hokkaido University Museum, and explore the activities along Lake Shikotsu.
