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.
Explore hidden gems such as Chidorigafuchi and Samurai Museum. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, make a trip to Shibuya Crossing, admire the striking features of Imperial Palace, and walk around Ueno Park.

To find photos, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, read Tokyo day trip planner.

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam to Tokyo is an approximately 6- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Ho Chi Minh City to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. In April, Tokyo is cooler than Ho Chi Minh City - with highs of 22°C and lows of 12°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can catch the train to Nagoya.

Nagoya ©
Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nakasendo Magome-juku and Ise Shrine Geku. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Nagoya: Magome Observatory (in Nakatsugawa), Nakasendo Tsumagojuku (in Nagiso-machi) and Toba Aquarium (in Toba). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, steep yourself in history at Oharai-machi, don't miss a visit to Nagoya Castle, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Nagoya day trip planner.

Traveling by train from Tokyo to Nagoya takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and train; or drive. Traveling from Tokyo in May, expect nights in Nagoya to be about the same, around 20°C, while days are little chillier, around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
