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.
Visit Tokyo National Museum and Fukagawa Edo Museum for their historical value. Get in touch with nature at Lake Kawaguchi and Lake Ashi (Ashinoko). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka) and Katabira-gawa Shinsui Ryokudo (in Yokohama). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sensō-ji, take a stroll through Ginza, get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower.
