Located in the Asakusa district of Tokyo, Sensoji Temple is brightly colored and was first built in 645. It is the oldest temple in the world and has always been one of the famous ancient temples in Tokyo. The entrance of the temple is the famous Kaminarimon Gate, with huge lanterns hanging on the towering gate.
Kaminarimon has become a well-known landmark in Asakusa because of its unique shape, and it is also a popular photo spot. Walk through the gate to the 200-meter-long Nakamise Shopping Street, lined with shops selling various souvenirs and local snacks.

The current Imperial Palace (皇居, Kōkyo) is located on the former site of Edo Castle, a large park area surrounded by moats and massive stone walls in the center of Tokyo, a short walk from Tokyo Station. It is the residence of Japan's Imperial Family.
From Kokyo Gaien, the large plaza in front of the Imperial Palace, visitors can view the 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. The bridge in the back was formerly a wooden bridge with two levels, from which the name Nijubashi (Double Bridge) is derived.
The inner grounds of the palace are generally not open to the public.
Meiji Shrine is located in the center of Tokyo. It is a shrine built to worship Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken. It is also the most important shrine of Shintoism in Japan. The number of people who visit Meiji Shrine every year is the highest in Japan, because the divination signs are very effective, and many people pray here for "family safety", "academic achievement" and so on. Every year, many important life ceremonies such as newborn naming ceremonies, coming-of-age ceremonies, and graduation ceremonies are held here. In particular, thousands of traditional Japanese weddings are held every year, adding a delicate and beautiful scenery here.
Ramen, also known as Japanese noodle soup, is usually served in a bowl of soft-boiled eggs, green onions, and char siew. Ramen Street is a one-stop noodle center that is part of the Tokyo Station underground mall. It includes eight tantalizing ramen restaurants. Its top three ramen restaurants include Rokurinsha, Ikaruga and Oreshiki Jun.
Tsukemen can be tasted at Rokurinsha. This noodle restaurant is famous for its old fire dipping noodle soup that reflects the authentic taste of noodles. This noodle shop is very popular, so you might have to wait in line, but it's definitely worth the wait.
What is the most identifiable landmark in Tokyo? It is the Shibuya Crossing. A visit to Tokyo would not be complete without visiting this unquestionably must-see.
Its sprawling scramble intersection is a picture of Tokyo as a whole: action in all directions. The street is constantly filled with people from all directions heading in different directions. As they try to cross, they bump, sidestep, and swerve around each other in a frantic mess. After a few minutes, it stops. When the traffic gets its turn, every little corner of the intersection slowly fills up, and just as people spill into the street, the crosswalk light turns green and the mayhem begins again.
A total of 500,000 people cross the crossing each day, which means 3,000 people cross at once!
Built in 1958, Tokyo Tower is located in the center of the city. It symbolizes Tokyo's rebirth after World War II. Tokyo Tower is 333 meters tall. When it was completed, the tower was the tallest in the world, surpassing even its inspiration, the Eiffel Tower. It witnessed the rapid economic growth that would be the beginning of the Japanese economic miracle, representing a renewed and ambitious Japan.
Tokyo Tower’s bright silhouette became a popular element in Tokyoites’ lives. Besides its striking color, it also lights up at night, dazzling both residents and tourists alike. The view from the top of Tokyo Tower is breathtakingly beautiful. One can see most of Tokyo's skyscrapers and monuments unobstructed. When the weather is fine, you can overlook Mount Fuji.
Originally the residence of the samurai family, Shinjuku Gyoen became the imperial garden in 1903 and finally opened as a park in 1949. The vast garden with an area of 144 acres is full of green grass, which is especially suitable for picnics; in spring, thousands of cherry blossom trees dye Shinjuku Gyoen Garden pink, and strolling under the flowers is full of romance.
In addition, Shinjuku Gyoen also has three distinctive gardens: Japanese garden, French garden and English garden, as well as quiet ponds, quiet woods and greenhouses with a variety of tropical and subtropical flowers. If you want to have a light meal here, you can taste traditional dishes or snacks at HANANOKi Cafe.
We take you to Mt. Fuji. It's easy to go with our transfer service. You can hike on the Ochudo Trail, a trail that loops around the middle of Mount Fuji at an almost constant height for 45 minutes to one hour. You will get an effortless feel for Mt. Fuji this way. You can enjoy sweeping views of Lake Kawaguchi, Lake Yamanaka, and the Japanese Alps while strolling along the trail to Satomipei.
Yamanakako Hanano Miyako Park is a flower field near Yamanakako Lake at the foot of Mt. Fuji. Visitors can enjoy the dreamlike view of Mt. Fuji with charming flowers in the park and surrounding fields.
The Chureito Pagoda (忠霊塔) is a five storied pagoda on the mountainside overlooking Fujiyoshida City and Mount Fuji off in the distance. The location offers spectacular views of Mount Fuji in combination with the pagoda, especially during the cherry blossom season in mid April when there are hundreds of trees in bloom and during the autumn color season which usually takes place in the first half of November. The spot is particularly popular among photographers as it allows for some wonderfully stereotypical shots of Japan.
