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.
Escape the urban bustle at Mt. Takao and Ubara Risokyo. Appreciate the collections at Tokyo National Museum and Samurai Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Remains of Kobundo Tunnel (in Otaki-machi), Enoshima Island (in Fujisawa) and Katabira-gawa Shinsui Ryokudo (in Yokohama). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Ginza, shop like a local with Harajuku Takeshita-dori, explore the galleries of Art Jeunesse Akihabara, and see the interesting displays at Ghibli Museum Mitaka.
