Tokyo city sites and travel guide from Expedia

Tokyo has so much to see and do, it is almost impossible to present a good overview of all of the sites … Expedia does a good job at starting the introduction.  Watch the above video published by Expedia and you will get a slight flavor for what this magnificent city has to offer a tourist.  That said, Tokyo is made up of numerous smaller (although still large in their own right) cities that have their own unique attributes.

Tokyo has the world’s largest metropolitan area by population according to an Wikipedia article, with an area population of over 36 million.  That’s a lot of people packed into a relatively small space.  But the Japanese people have done an excellent job in building beautifully clean, well organized, hospitable mega city.
