The East

Eastern Japan

Eastern Japan (Kanto) is where much of the action is, and Tokyo is what many people think of when they hear Japan.  Most people imagine glittery fashion and high-tech gadgets when they hear Tokyo, and to some extent that's true - Of course the East has some old style towns as well, like Asakusa and Tsukishima.  

Some of the destinations below are popular and well-known, while others are more off the beaten path - at least for foreigners.  We'll fill you in on all the secrets - Just don't let them know we sent you!

Why is there no link for Tokyo?  Because Tokyo is, to use the United States metaphor, more of a state than a city.
