Tokyo — 8 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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Senso-ji Temple and Hase-dera Temple. Odaiba District and Kōtoku-in are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Yokohama Chinatown (in Yokohama) and Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka). There's still lots to do: stop by Ginza, don't miss a visit to Tokyo Tower, explore the galleries of Tokyo National Museum, and relax and rejuvenate at Waho-An NATURE Tokyo.

Planning Tokyo trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.
