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.
Get some cultural insight at Odaiba District and Ghibli Museum Mitaka. Do your shopping at Ginza and Takeshita Street. Step out of Tokyo to go to Miura and see Moroiso Shores, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Edo-Tokyo Museum, explore the world behind art at Tokyo National Museum, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple.

Numazu tourism focuses primarily on what lies just outside of the town, with the urban area providing a base for wider regional, natural explorations.

When in Numazu, make a side trip to see The Hakone Open-Air Museum in Hakone-machi, approximately Hakone-machi away. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Susono Fishing Park.
