Tokyo Metropolis, contains the Tokyo wards and the surrounding districts that are connected with Saitama, Kanagawa, Tochigi and Chiba prefectures.  Some people consider a place like Nikko in Tochigi prefecture is considered as part of the Tokyo Metropolis.  Tokyo Metropolis is considered a prefecture but the Tokyo city itself consists of 23 administrative wards.  Since it confusing to understand the exact boundaries of the Tokyo Metropolis, I would like to restrict the temples of Tokyo Metropolis to the areas within these 23 wards. 




All of these 23 wards are connected with one subway line called Yamanote line (Yamanote Sen).  Tokyo Metro Subway runs two trains on Yamanote line, one going clockwise and second going anti clockwise.  You can cover all the 23 wards using the Yamanote line.  In some cases you may need to take another subway from a Yamanote stop to get a place like Asakusa where the famous Sensoji Temple is located.






Tokyo contains many landmark attractions and is one of the biggest cities in the world (may be in the top five).  One of the newer additions to the city is the Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest tower in the world.  It is set open in the March of 2012 for visitors.  Here is a video of this magnificent structure:





Anybody who has visited Japan, would have seen Tokyo, so I will not spend more time on the tourist attractions in Japan.

The temples in Tokyo, specially Senso-ji Temple and Meiji Jingu shrine are the most visited.  Sensoji Temple holds the distinction of being the most visited temple in the Kanto region.
