TOKYO SKYTREE® & Solamachi shopping
Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa, the oldest temple in Tokyo founded in 628 AD, is visited by about 30 million worshippers a year from different parts of Japan and abroad. Kaminarimon is one of the must see sites for visitors to Tokyo. See the large red lantern and impressive gate from the bus before heading to TOKYO SKYTREE®. TOKYO SKYTREE® is the capital city’s latest icon, and the world’s tallest broadcasting tower (634m high). Located in Sumida ward, where Edo (the ancient name for Tokyo) culture thrives to this day. The elevator moving at a top speed of 600m per minute will take visitors to the glass-enclosed observation deck 350m above ground, where you can see 360 degrees across Tokyo. Many of the famous features of the Tokyo cityscape, including Rainbow Bridge and Mt. Fuji in the distance on a clear day, can be enjoyed from the observation deck.
The 300-odd shops and restaurants at the foot of the tower collectively known as Tokyo Solamachi strive to embrace new trends but at the same time, capture the feeling of this area of Tokyo from days of yore.
Tokyo River Cruise & Hama-Rikyu Gardens
This half-hour boat cruise down the Sumida River travels under some 14 bridges spanning Tokyo’s main river, showing the capital’s famous landmarks along the way. The cityscape of Tokyo seen from the river is refreshing to the eye. The cruise will arrive at the majestic Hamarikyu Gardens, located along the Tokyo Waterfront. Visitors can enjoy a walk in the beautifully preserved garden which the family of the ruling Tokugawa Shogun owned from 17th to mid- 19th century, and used for hunting with falcons.
Autumn leaves can be enjoyed in Tokyo from late November to December. The reflection of the colorful trees on the waters of the ponds are spectacular, making this a beautiful viewing spot. Together with the autumn leaves, enjoy the sculpted beauty of this vast Japanese garden in the middle of the city.
