Anchored by Tokyo, the world's biggest metropolis, Kanto also has rustic mountain getaways and gorgeous subtropical islands
Megacity Tokyo fully engages the senses with its mix of modern bustle and traditional tranquility.

The volcanic Ogasawara Islands offer a subtropical getaway with endemic wildlife and clear water. Kanto's culinary options are as varied as the landscape—restaurants serving cuisine from every corner of the globe abound at every price point.
