Highlights of Eastern Tokyo
Discoer the highlights of the Tokyo Metropolis, exploring the Asakusa District, Sensoji Temple, Nakamis Shoping Street, Akihabara and the Imperial Palace.
Stop by the Asakusa District and browse the local delicacies, crafts and souvenirs on offer from the hundreds of stalls which line the approach to Sensoji Temple. Be immersed in the aroma of incense and traditional atmosphere of the area in the shadows of Tokyo's skyscrapers.
Following this, browse the Nakamise Shopping Street before heading to Akihabara. This district is the heart of electronics and fan culture associated with anime, manga and video games. For blocks around the train station there are arcades, electronics and comic book stores filling every space selling the latests goods side by side with second hand items. Don't be put off by voltage or technology differences either, with many retailers offering international models.
We also head to the Imperial Palace to appreciate the magnificent architecture and heritage.
