Tokyo is a very large metropolis with 23 wards and 26 cities and a population of over 13 million people. Though Tokyo is readily accessible from much of the country via the Shinkansen, Japan's high speed railway, the price of one Shinkansen ticket may be more than that of a cheap airfare ticket on one of the many Japanese airlines. Nevertheless, the experience of riding the "bullet train" is one worth having!
