Tokyo

— 2 nights
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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Ueno District as well as Asakusa Shrine. Kokyo Gaien National Garden and Shibuya Center-gai are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Yodobashi Camera Shinjuku West Main Store, have some family-friendly fun at Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou, see where the action happens at Ryogoku Kokugikan, and browse the different shops at Ikspiari.

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

Jakarta, Indonesia to Tokyo is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Jakarta to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. In June, Tokyo is little chillier than Jakarta - with highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Mon) so you can drive to Hachioji.
