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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ueno District and Kagurazaka. Step out of the city life by going to Meguro River and Sumida River. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Kawagoe (Kawagoe Aquatic Park & Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine), Hakone-machi (Hakonekohan Golf Course, Hakone Shrine / Kuzuryu Shrine Singu, &more) and Odawara Castle (in Odawara). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Chidorigafuchi, admire the striking features of Kobuntei, wander the streets of Kichijoji, and stop by Odaiba District.
