Tokyo holds the status of most populous metropolitan area in the world--a fact you'll find tangible as you walk the bustling streets and explore its diverse neighborhoods and cultures.
Visit Senso-ji Temple and The East Gardens of the Imperial Palace (Edo Castle Ruin) for their historical value. When in Tokyo, make a side trip to see Sojiji in Nishitokyo, approximately Nishitokyo away. The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, wander the streets of Odaiba District, get curious at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan, and get engrossed in the history at Edo-Tokyo Museum.

For where to stay, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, read Tokyo itinerary planner.

Los Angeles, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll lose 17 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. In November, Tokyo is little chillier than Los Angeles - with highs of 62°F and lows of 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Seika-cho.

The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
