Recommended routes

    After seeing the wonders of Tokyo by modern sightseeing boat on the Sumida River, take a trip to Kurashiki, an area that prospered under the rule of the Edo Shogunate. As you ride in a nostalgic rowboat, you’ll feel as if you’ve slipped back in time from Tokyo to the far-off Edo period.
    After looking out over Tokyo from Skytree, Japan’s tallest radio tower, head out to Bitchu Matsuyama Castle. This castle is known for being located at the highest point of all mountain castles with castle towers. Reflect on bygone history as you look out on the townscape stretching out beneath you.
