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.
Attractions like Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and Tokyo Disneyland make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Tokyo DisneySea in Maihama (about 40 minutes away). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, have some family-friendly fun at Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou, admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple.

To see reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip itinerary builder site.

London, UK to Tokyo is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. Traveling from London to Tokyo, you'll lose 9 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from London in April: high temperatures in Tokyo hover around 22°C and lows are around 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Kyoto.

Go for a jaunt from Kyoto to Osaka to see Universal Studios Japan about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanjusangendo Temple.
