Tokyo

Tokyo ©
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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings. And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Skytree, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senso-ji Temple, and admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.

Plan my Tokyo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Tokyo is an approximately 11- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and train. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Jakarta to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. In January, Tokyo is much colder than Jakarta - with highs of 11°C and lows of 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) so you can go by car to Kawaguchi.
