Tokyo, the capital of Japan as well as the country's largest city which has approximately twelve million residents. It is also one of Japan's 47 prefectures. The metropolis of Tokyo consists of 23 city wards (Ku), 26 cities, 5 towns and 8 villages, including the Izu and Ogasawara Islands, several small Pacific Islands in the south of Japan's main island Honshu.

If you plan to visit Tokyo, try to plan it out from end of March to mid of April then you will be fascinated with the blooming cherry blossom (Sakura). Do remember to pay a visit to Ueno Onshi Koen and you won't regret. [1-min walk from JR Ueno Station, Koen Exit]. Never forget to visit the famous Sensoji Temple in Asakusa, the oldest temple in Tokyo and is said to have been built in 628. The Grand Kaminarimon Gate with a large lantern is a landmark. [8-min walk from Asakusa Subway Station (G19) on Ginza line, Exit 1]. Dodge the fresh fishes in Tsukiji Fish Market [Tsukiji Shijo], the largest central wholesale market in Japan and reward yourself with original early morning SUSHI [Short walk from Tsukiji Shijo Subway Station (E18) on Oedo Line, Exit A1]. I bet you will love it! Spend at least one day in Tokyo Disneyland and enjoy yourself there, don't miss out the Electrical Parade Dreamlights [Get off at Maihama Station on JR Keiyo Line].
