Trip of the Week, Sponsored by Baton Rouge Metro Airport: Experience a world of adventure in Tokyo

    Soak up the ancient culture, hidden treasures and oddball attractions in the Land of the Rising Sun. Fly nonstop from BTR to Dallas or Charlotte on American, Houston on United or Atlanta on Delta. Enjoy traditional cuisine and spellbinding architecture at Tokyo’s oldest temple, Sensoji, open since 645 A.D. Wind your way down Takeshita Street for offbeat clothing, quirky souvenirs and everything tiny, or shop alongside the teenage fashionistas in the Harajuku District. Grab your seat at Ryogoku Hall for some authentic sumo wrestling and heavyweight fun. Witness martial arts exhibitions and tie your written wishes to the prayer wall at the mystical Meiji Shrine. For automatic weirdness, dine amid flashing neon lights at the world-famous Robot Restaurant. Or scramble to take the selfie of a lifetime at Shibuya Crossing, the world’s busiest intersection.
