Tokyo

— 1 day
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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Sat): admire the landmark architecture of Imperial Palace, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, don't miss a visit to Tokyo Tower, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, and finally take a stroll through Akihabara.

To find where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Tokyo road trip planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Tokyo. In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Shimoda.
