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'll explore and learn at Tokyo National Museum and The Hakone Open-Air Museum. Senso-ji Temple and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Kōtoku-in (in Kamakura), Fujikawaguchiko-machi (Nature & Wildlife Tours & Lake Kawaguchi) and Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) (in Hakone-machi). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Odaiba, admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, delve into the lush surroundings at Yokohama Nature Sanctuary, and examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum.
