Tokyo: 2017

Post-Trip, 4 Days

With its intriguing intersection of ultra-modernity and time-honored tradition, Tokyo is a fascinating place to explore. Experience the city’s contrasts as you discover celebrated museums, temples, and historic neighborhoods. Sample the local cuisine, and get immersed in the colorful bustle of one of the world’s largest fish markets.

Itinerary - 4 Days

Day 1 — Tokyo

Travel to Tokyo via the high-speed train from Hiroshima. Upon arrival, get acquainted with the city’s celebrated landmarks, including the Imperial Palace. Explore Asakusa, one of Tokyo’s oldest neighborhoods, and the Senso-ji temple, built in the 7th century and now a sizeable complex of shrines, temples, and a pagoda. Continue on a photo walk of nearby Kappabashi-dori, also known as “Kitchen Town.” The shops here supply the city’s restaurants with many interesting items, including the plastic display food (sampuru, derived from the English word "sample"). Settle into our hotel late this afternoon, and enjoy an evening at leisure.
