Tokyo Is one of the largest cities on the planet. It vibrates with energy and vitality. One`s pulse quickens with the pace and noise of this gargantuan city. It isn`t a place to relax in. It is a shoppers paradise, a place to party or savor the food of any country of the world.

beautiful Nikko and Kegon Falls.
The falls are where many have reputedly seen ghosts. I have heard many stories
Another part of the Kanto plain where Tokyo is situated is the prefecture of Kanagawa. Kawasaki, Sagamihara, Atsugi,
Yokohama are all in Kanagawa Prefecture.

extinct volcano for a lake. Volcanic activity is in evidence
