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.
Take a break from the city and head to Ueno Zoo and Mt. Iwatake Ishiyama. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ginza and Ameya Yokocho (Ameyoko). Go for a jaunt from Tokyo to Fujisawa to see Enoshima Island about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Odaiba, get a taste of the local shopping with Harajuku Takeshita-dori, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and contemplate the long history of Tokyo National Museum.

For more things to do, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Tokyo day trip planning site .

Honolulu, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train.
