Western Area 15h45m 12
At Tokyo, you'll be riding a train as you tour Edo Castle—Tokugawa's residence that became the Imperial Palace in the Meiji era—and many other places related to the late Edo period patriots who played a great role in the capitulation of the castle without any bloodshed during the Ueno war, fought between the old shogunate forces and the new government forces. From Yokohama, you'll then be taking a drive on a rental car. Past the late Edo period and the Meiji Restoration, pay a visit to the residence of Japan's first Prime Minister Hirobumi Ito, who worked for the establishment of a constitutional government, and many other places. After you stretch you legs out at Hakone, you'll be on your way to Shizuoka.
