Step off the beaten path and head to Edo-Tokyo Museum and Minato Mirai 21. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Tokyo National Museum and Ghibli Museum. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Odaiba, examine the collection at Samurai Museum, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace.

Mumbai, India to Tokyo is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train.

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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Gion and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Discover out-of-the-way places like Pontocho and Toji. When in Kyoto, make a side trip to see Nara Park in Nara, approximately 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, step into the grandiose world of Nijo-jo Castle, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, and make a trip to Eikando Zenrinji Temple.
