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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi) and Maihama (Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea). The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, visit Akihabara, and wander the streets of Odaiba District.
