What to Do on a Tokyo Cruise Port Stop
How will you decide what to do on your Tokyo cruise port stop?
Tokyo he Youkoso! Welcome to Tokyo!
Tokyo is one of the most popular and populous tourist destinations in the world. It is both a modern metropolis and a hub of Japanese history and culture. Taking a cruise for a Tokyo vacation is an exciting adventure for the senses. View the thousands of neon lights illuminating the city, breathe in the scents of Japanese flowers, taste the delightful cuisine, listen to the traditional Gagaku music, and let your mind rest in the peacefulness of a temple garden. There truly are so many possibilities on a Tokyo port stop.
One important thing to note is that the Tokyo port most cruise ships pass through is actually in Yokohama, located a short train ride outside of Tokyo, where the people and their lifestyles are more traditional.
Your Tokyo cruise port is an open door to adventure. There are many things to do in Tokyo, and whether you want to immerse yourself in the culture, learn about the history, or enjoy the many shopping areas, there are perfect excursions available to suit your personal tastes.
