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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Asakusa Shrine and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Yanaka and Hokokuji Temple (Takedera Temple). Venture out of the city with trips to Oyama Afuri Shrine (in Isehara), Kamakura (Kencho-ji Temple & Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine) and Mitsumine Shrine (Chichibu) (in Chichibu). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Takao, take in the architecture and design of University of Tokyo, get to know the fascinating history of Kokyo Gaien National Garden, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hie Jinjya.

You can plan Tokyo trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
