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 out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi), Tokyo DisneySea (in Maihama) and Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, admire the masterpieces at Tokyo National Museum, wander the streets of Odaiba, and get a sense of history and politics at Imperial Palace.
