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.
On the 22nd (Wed), admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, then admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, then ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and finally get your game on at Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Tokyo vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Boracay, Philippines to Tokyo is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of ferry and flight. The time zone changes from Philippine Standard Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to go by car to Narita.
