Things to do in Tokyo range from strolling down manicured pathways and wooden bridges of Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden to admiring the city panorama from the observation deck of Tokyo Tower. Start your Tokyo tour by taking a step back in time and learning how the Japanese capital evolved at Edo-Tokyo Museum. You can also soak up the atmosphere of this pulsing metropolis while strolling among the glass buildings of Tokyo's upscale shopping neighborhood, Ginza. If you get overwhelmed with bustling streets and soaring skyscrapers, rest up between blossoming cherry trees at Ueno Park or make a side trip to the whimsical Ghibli Museum.

Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
