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 discover tucked-away gems like Kamogawa Sea World and Enoshima Island. Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Kamakura (Kencho-ji Temple, Hokokuji Temple (Takedera Temple), & more), Mitsumine Shrine (Chichibu) (in Chichibu) and Yokohama Landmark Tower (in Yokohama). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, admire the masterpieces at Nezu Museum, stroll through Happoen Garden, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Tokyo Camii & Turkish Culture Center.
