Tokyo has long held the dubious honor of being one of the world's most expensive travel destinations, and not without reason. The rising yen and Japan's full-throttle economic boom combined to thrust the price of entertainment and sight-seeing in Japan's capital sky high. But as the "New York of the Orient," Tokyo's sights and sounds are must-dos for any modern-day traveler. Now comes Tokyo for Free, a thorough survey of over 300 attractions of traditional and modern Japan - 11 absolutely free. Included are visits to the Imperial Palace, dynamic martial arts bouts, classic gardens and temples, contemporary sculpture gardens, antique markets, traditional and "boutique" museums, and a sake tasting room, to name but a few.
