Things to do in Tokyo

Don't miss Imperial Palace East Garden, Located outside the Imperial Palace on the grounds of a former Edo-era castle, the grounds contain a tea pavilion, traditional Japanese garden, a moat and stone walls. Hopefully your visit will coincide with the blooming of the cherry blossom trees.

Also see Tokyo's oldest and most significant Buddhist temple, Asakusa Kannon Temple. Visit the Meiji Shrine, which was dedicated to the Emperor and Empress in 1926, the most important Shinto shrine. Take a harbour cruise to see the big buildings from a different angle. Don't forget the Ginza shopping district with its eye-popping neon lights, department stores and giant theaters.
