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.
Edo-Tokyo Museum and Tokyo National Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Ginza and Takeshita Street. Take a break from Tokyo with a short trip to Ghibli Museum Mitaka in Mitaka, about 44 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, take a stroll through Asakusa, ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine.
