What to Do in Tokyo

If you’re wondering where to begin, bus tours are typically an excellent place to start. You can choose your own adventure on a hop-on, hop-off-style tour or sign up for a guided outing to the main Tokyo tourist attractions. You can even enjoy a themed tour, such as a journey through the city’s history or its most famous architecture. Choose one that interests you and get going; you’ll soon be feeling right at home amongst the neon lights and buzzing crowds. Once you have your bearings, branch out and discover even more fun around every corner.

Race over to Mount Fuji on the bullet train and gaze up at the more than 12,000-foot peak of this legendary volcano. It is easy to see how this mountain has been an inspiration for Japanese art for centuries. Climbing it is quite an undertaking, but you can head to the 5th Station transit stop, about halfway to the top. Once there, take a boat cruise on pristine Lake Ashi. If you have children with you (or adults who are just kids at heart), Tokyo’s theme parks are also a popular option. Back in the city for dinner, take in the show at Robot Restaurant, or head to Shinbashi or Ginza neighbourhoods for delicious bites.
