Tokyo — 2 nights

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.
On the 8th (Sun), admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, then make a trip to Shibuya Crossing, and finally admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower. On the 9th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the striking features of Tokyo Skytree, take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, then get your game on at Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou, and finally pause for some photo ops at Hachiko.
