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 explore and learn at Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum and Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Hase-dera Temple and Hokokuji Temple (Takedera Temple). Venture out of the city with trips to Kamakura (Engaku-ji Temple, Hokoku-ji Temple Bamboo Grove, &more). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Nezu Shrine, examine the collection at Fire Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Asakusa Shrine, and wander the streets of Yanaka District.
