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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Edo-Tokyo Museum and Tokyo National Museum. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Odaiba and Imperial Palace. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka), Kōtoku-in (in Kamakura) and The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi). Have a day of magic on the 27th (Tue) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, explore the historical opulence of The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace (Edo Castle Ruin), enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Skytree, and take a stroll through Akihabara.
