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 Lake Kawaguchi and Moroiso Shores. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sensō-ji and Tokyo National Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: Fujiyoshida (Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine & Omuro Sengen Shrine (Shimosengen)) and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine (in Kamakura). There's still lots to do: find something for the whole family at Tokyo Disneyland, get curious at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan, examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum, and wander the streets of Odaiba.

London, UK to Tokyo is an approximately 15-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from London to Tokyo. Traveling from London in August, expect Tokyo to be a bit warmer, temps between 36°C and 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Shimoda.

On a trip to Shimoda, a small town nestled on the tip of the Izu peninsula, you can take advantage of the scenic sandy beaches and soak in the laid-back atmosphere.
Visiting Otago Beach and Tagosehama Beach will get you outdoors. Relax by the water at Inatori Ukiuki Beach and Tatadohama Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Izu (Odoi Beach, Nishiizu Skyline, & more), Matsuzaki-cho (Fujimi Chokoku Line, Iwachi Beach, & more) and Numazu (Ita Beach & Ose Beach). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Kisami Ohama Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kujupama Beach, identify plant and animal life at Hino Broccolini Garden, and take some stellar pictures from Tsumekizaki Tawara Iso Beach.

Traveling by car from Tokyo to Shimoda takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 30°C. You will have some time to spend on the 26th (Wed) before leaving for home.
