TokyoTokyo is a city of contrasts where the latest in modern technology meets Shinto Buddhist traditions. Visit Meiji Jingu, the city's most important shrine which is set in a beautiful forested park, and take a boat ride to the historical district of Asakusa to see Sensoji Temple, the oldest in Tokyo. Also stroll around the peaceful Hamarikyu Gardens and climb the Sky Tree for stunning views over the city.
Take the opportunity to escape from the city to see Mt Fuji and the beautiful Five Lakes Region. Mt Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan, rising to 3,776 metres and its beauty derives from its almost symmetrical volcanic cone. Also visit Owakudani, a hot spring crater formed by an eruption of Mt Hakone, take a cruise on Lake Ashi and ride the Mt Komagatake cable car. Complete your day by returning on a super-fast bullet train.
