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.
Get in touch with nature at Moroiso Shores and Futtsu Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore Tokyo National Museum and National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan. Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Shirosaki Beach (in Kamogawa) and Yokosuka (Nagasawa Beach & Akiya, Tateishi Coast). There's lots more to do: visit Odaiba District, take an in-depth tour of Edo-Tokyo Museum, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, and wander the streets of Akihabara.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Tokyo vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Tel Aviv, Israel to Tokyo is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. Traveling from Tel Aviv to Tokyo, you'll lose 7 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Tel Aviv in September; daily highs in Tokyo reach 32°C and lows reach 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to travel to Kyoto.

The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nara Park. Do your shopping at Dotombori District and Fuuka-Kimono. Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Nara (Todaiji Temple Cultural Center & Todai-ji Temple). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take a stroll through Arashiyama, explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple.

To find photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read our Kyoto online day trip planner.
