In this amazing metropolis, you’ll find traditional Japanese culture alongside cutting-edge gadgetry, with great food, enthralling cultural diversions, and excellent shopping, but Tokyo can be nothing short of overwhelming for the first-time visitor—or second- or third-time visitor. To help you make the most of your visit, we’ve come up with 10 mini itineraries to make your next trip to Tokyo seamless, whether you’re looking to dive into the world of anime or take a peaceful walk through the Imperial Palace grounds. —Abbey Chase
