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.
Start off your visit on the 22nd (Wed): admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, get great views at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, then get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and finally get your game on at Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Tokyo driving holiday planner .

Boracay, Philippines to Tokyo is an approximately 10-hour combination of ferry and flight. You can also do a combination of ferry, bus, and flight. Traveling from Boracay to Tokyo, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Boracay in April, plan for little chillier days and much colder nights in Tokyo: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 12°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) so you can take a bus to Narita.
