Day 5 – Tokyo and Beyond Tour

The first stop today will be the picturesque Kegon Falls, located in Lake Chuzenji in Okunikko. This waterfall is 97 meters (320 feet) high and one of the tallest in Japan. This will be followed by a visit to Futarasan Shrine, founded in 767 by Shodo Shonin (the same monk who founded Rinnoji). This shrine is dedicated to three mountain deities and houses two swords that are national treasures. After returning to Tokyo, you will have the chance to explore freely and see some of the modern sights of the city. Destination suggestions within the city include: the Shiodome District (breathtaking skyscrapers and a reconstruction of the old Shinbashi train station), Akihabara (the flashy and famous electronic goods district), Odaiba (a futuristic island entertainment district in the bay), or Shibuya (a trendy shopping and entertainment district south of Shinjuku). You can also use your rail pass to visit nearby cities such as Yokohama.
