Tokyo

— 3 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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Ueno District and Tokyo National Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kamakura Hiking Trails and Yokohama Intl Passenger Terminal. Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Araihama Beach (in Miura), Enoshima Island (in Fujisawa) and Mother Farm (in Futtsu). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Takao, wander the streets of Odaiba District, kick back and relax at Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park), and enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.

Land of the Rising Sun
Part of a volcanic archipelago that encompasses over 6,800 islands, Japan remains one of Asia's most fascinating tourist destinations, where a blend of modernity and tradition creates a look and feel completely different from any other place in the world. A tour of Japan lets you discover big cities filled with ancient temples and innovative skyscrapers, as well as quiet country landscapes dotted with castles, perfectly manicured gardens, cherry orchards, and primeval forests seemingly untouched by the hand of mass tourism. Many tourists on vacation in Japan devote lots of time to the country's unique cuisine, prepared with painstaking attention to detail and a genius for simple yet effective presentation.
