Day 2 – Tokyo
Today we will visit some of the most iconic venues on offer in the amazing City of Tokyo!
Depart the hotel for Meiji Jingu one of Japan’s most popular Shinto Shrines. The shrine is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. He was the nation’s first Emperor and credited with modernising & westernising the country.
Continue to Asakusa the center of Tokyo’s downtown, where the atmosphere of Old Tokyo is still alive. Enjoy a stroll around the Senso-ji Temple which was built in the 7th Century. Ample time will be afforded to also explore Nakamise, which is the shopping street of the temple. Here you will have varied options for lunch which is on your own.
From Asakusa board a river bus offering a different perspective to the city as we sail to Hamarikyu Gardens. This large traditionally styled garden features seawater ponds which change levels with the tides, and a teahouse on an island where visitors can rest and enjoy the scenery.
Next is to Tokyo Tower, a symbol of Japan’s post-war rebirth. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower, Tokyo Tower was the tallest structure in the country from 1958-2012. Enjoy a birds’ eye-view of the city from the observation deck. It is then on to the upscale shopping district of Ginza, home to numerous luxury brands. Enjoy some free time to explore and contrast both experiences before returning to your hotel. (B)
