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.
Tokyo is known for historic sites, parks, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: wander the streets of Odaiba District, stop by Akihabara, enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Skytree, and get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.

Zurich, Switzerland to Tokyo is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Zurich to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Zurich in March; daily highs in Tokyo reach 17°C and lows reach 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can go by car to Yamanouchi-machi.
