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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Senso-ji Temple, Philatelic Museum, Ueno Park, and other attractions you added. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Edo-Tokyo Museum and Samurai Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Tokyo Dome City and Ueno Zoo. Have a day of magic on the 27th (Thu) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Tokyo National Museum, enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo City View Observation Deck (Roppongihills), explore the historical opulence of The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace (Edo Castle Ruin), and get a sense of history and politics at Imperial Palace.
