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.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Fri): don't miss a visit to Shibuya Crossing and then make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine.
