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 enjoy Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi) and Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) (in Hakone-machi). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, get a sense of history and politics at Imperial Palace, and take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.

For photos, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Tokyo sightseeing website.

Singapore, Singapore to Tokyo is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone changes from Singapore Standard Time (SGT) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Expect cooler temperatures when traveling from Singapore in December; daily highs in Tokyo reach 14°C and lows reach 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to take a train to Niigata.

The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Venture out of the city with trips to Akatani Cycling Road (in Shibata), Yahiko Shrine (in Yahiko-mura) and Mikawaonsen Ski Areas (in Aga-machi). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mt. Yahiko, don't miss a visit to Echigo Nanaura Seaside Line, take an in-depth tour of Northern Culture Museum, and stroll around Echigo Hillside Park.

To see ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Niigata online travel route planner.

Getting from Tokyo to Niigata by train takes about 3 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. While traveling from Tokyo, expect a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Niigata, ranging from highs of 5°C to lows of 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
