Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Gempeigawa River (in Mishima), Kencho-ji Temple (in Kamakura) and Chigogafuchi Marine Plateau (in Enoshima). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Oya History Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Asakusa Shrine, explore the world behind art at Nezu Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Kanda Myojin.
