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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Nikko Tosho-gu, Tokyo Skytree, Sensō-ji, and other attractions you added. Venture out of the city with trips to Nikko (Shinkyo Bridge, Akechidaira Observation Area, & more), Mt. Fuji 5th Station (in Narusawa-mura) and Hakone-machi (Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) & Hakone Ropeway). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Takeshita Street, explore the historical opulence of Odawara Castle, and pause for some photo ops at Hachiko.
