Overnight flight with Qantas to Tokyo.
Upon arrival, we will catch the Narita Express train to Shinagawa Station. Check in to our hotel. In the afternoon, we take a city orientation tour including the historic Imperial Palace East Gardens, an oasis of calm in the middle of this giant city. We will spend five nights in Tokyo.
This morning, we will experience a ride on the Tokyu Setagaya Tram Line from Sangen-Jaya to Shimo-Takaido. It is one of the only two tram lines that still exist today, as majority of the Tokyo's streetcar was shut down in the 1960's. We will then explore Meiji Shrine, dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his consort, Empress Shoken. In the afternoon we will visit Senso-ji Temple and Asakusa for a taste of traditional Japan. Senso-ji is one of the very popular temples in Tokyo while the Asakusa area that surrounds it provides a wonderful variety of snacks, restaurants and souvenir shopping. Enjoy our welcome dinner tonight.

Return to Tokyo for overnight.
