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.
Senso-ji Temple and Odaiba are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Shop till you drop at Ginza and Takeshita Street. Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to The Hakone Open-Air Museum in Hakone-machi--about 2 hours away. Next up on the itinerary: make a trip to Tokyo Tower, admire the striking features of Imperial Palace, admire the masterpieces at Tokyo National Museum, and ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.
