After filling up on your delicious creations, explore pop culture heaven: Harajuku. Expect to see maids, punks, goths, and fashionistas – anything goes in Harajuku!
Finish the day admiring the city lights at Shibuya Crossing. Apparently, it’s the busiest intersection in the world!

Visit the Panasonic Centre, a museum full of interactive exhibits based on science, technology and mathematics.
Top off a busy day at Odaiba Waterfront, where you can admire the city views.
Day 4: Science Park
Pay a visit to the Tsukuba Science City, a specially-designed region dedicated to the exploration of the sciences. You’ll stop off at Science Square, a museum that’s known as a ‘showroom of industrial technology’.
Stroll around Akihabara. This is Tokyo’s neon-lit “electric town”, a hub of anime and manga stores.
Day 5: Hakone
Go on a trip to Hakone, one of Japan’s best-known and most-loved onsen (hot spring) resort destinations. Take the ropeway over Owakudani. If you’re lucky and the skies are clear, you could even spot the magnificent Mount Fuji. Today, you can also sample black eggs, a local delicacy coloured by the sulphuric spring waters they’re cooked in. You’ll also pay a visit to a volcano!
Day 6: Tokyo’s History
Unwind on a cruise down the Sumida River before learning about Zen Buddhism at the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. Buddhism is deeply interconnected with Japanese society, culture and lifestyle. In fact, whilst only 34% of the Japanese population identify as Buddhist, a huge 75% practise some form of Buddhism!
Get in amongst the action on the trading room floor at the Tokyo Stock Exchange Market.
It’s your last evening, so make it count! Tonight, you’re getting creative with a Taiko drumming class.
