Tokyo, Japan-port

Because it is the seat of the Japanese government and the home of the Imperial Family, Tokyo is the de facto capital of Japan. The firebombings of WWII in 1945, with 75,000 to 200,000 killed and half of the city destroyed, were almost as devastating as the atomic bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined. After the war, Tokyo was completely rebuilt. Today, Tokyo is one of the three world finance "command centers," along with New York and London.

Code: TOKL10

From your base in Tokyo, you will visit some of the most impressive sights of Japan, including both ancient temples and modern wonders. Tour the 7th-century Sensoji Temple in Asakusa and visit the Tokyo Tower, a communications and observation tower and the second tallest structure in Japan. Discover Tokyo’s fascinating Shogun history or Japan’s rich tradition of art at superb museums, and during your leisure time, perhaps take in the high-energy atmosphere of Ginza, Tokyo’s premier shopping and entertainment district.

DAY 1

Welcome to Tokyo! Upon arrival at Narita Airport you will be met at the Custom Exit and transferred to your hotel.

Check in is at 4:00pm. Although every effort will be made to have your rooms available before this time, this cannot be guaranteed. If you have an early arriving flight you may wish to book an extra night so your room is available upon your arrival.

Meals are on your own today.

DAY 2

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel. The morning is at your leisure and lunch is on your own.

In the afternoon, you will be met by your guide in the lobby of the hotel before heading out on a half tour of the city.

Your first visit will be the Edo Tokyo Museum. This is one of Tokyo’s premier museums, charting the rise of Tokyo from a small fishing village called Edo through to the thriving metropolis that you see today. Housed in a space-age building, exhibits include a wide range of historical artifacts, including collections of ukiyoe woodblock prints, kimonos and scale models of towns and buildings from the Edo, Meiji and Showa periods.

After the visit to the museum, you will visit Tokyo Tower which is 333 meters high and a symbol of Tokyo since 1958. If the sky is clear, you should be able to see Mt. Fuji from the main observatory.

Return to your hotel where the evening is at your leisure and dinner is on your own.

DAY 3

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel and then embark on another half day tour of Tokyo allowing you to see the city from a different perspective than the day prior.

You will first visit the Asakusa Senso-ji Temple, which was founded in the early 7th century. You will enter through a gate decorated with a huge red paper lantern, weather permitting.

The architecture is stunning, as this temple is the country’s oldest and one of the most revered. One of the highlights is Nakamise-dori, known as the “Street of Inside Shops,” an alley lined with vendors selling traditional food, souvenirs and handmade crafts.

After visiting the museum your tour will continue with a visit to the Imperial Palace Plaza (no interior visit). Japan’s emperor and empress reside at the Palace. Surrounded by a moat, the palace was formerly known as Edo Castle, and samurai warriors lived there in the 17th through 19th centuries. In the large plaza in front of the palace, you can view the famed Nijubashi—two bridges that form an entrance to the inner palace grounds. The stone bridge in front is called Meganebashi (Eyeglass Bridge) for its looks.

Return to your hotel where the remainder of the day is at your leisure and dinner is on your own.

DAY 4

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before checking out and transferring to the port for embarkation.
