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've added Omoide Yokocho, Ameyoko Shopping Street, Kanei-ji Temple Kompon Chudo, and other attractions to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Naritasan Shinshō-ji Temple (in Narita) and Tokyo DisneySea (in Urayasu). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace (Edo Castle Ruin), take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo City View And Sky Deck, kick back and relax at Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park), and explore the world behind art at The National Art Center, Tokyo.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Tokyo using our trip planner.
