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.
Do your shopping at Takeshita Street and teamLab Borderless. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Odaiba and Art Jeunesse Akihabara. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sensō-ji, find something for the whole family at Tokyo Joypolis, shop like a local with Ameya Yokocho (Ameyoko), and have some family-friendly fun at Anata no Warehouse, Kawasaki.

For reviews and tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip planner .
