Q: What is the difference between Enjoy your staying in Tokyo. and Enjoy your stay in Tokyo. ?
A: "Enjoy your staying" is incorrect. When we say "enjoy your stay", the word "stay" is a noun (not the infinitive of the verb "to stay"). So you can say: "Enjoy your trip" or "Enjoy your travels" or "Enjoy your experiences" but NOT "Enjoy your traveling" or "Enjoy your experiencing".

As for the logic behind this, I'm not sure why it's incorrect. I understand the -ing verbs are gerunds being used as nouns, but it still sounds awkward. Maybe because "Enjoy your __" is a common set expression?
