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.
You've added Shibuya Center-gai, Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo Skytree, and other attractions to your itinerary. Attractions like Meiji Jingu Shrine and Hakone Shrine / Kuzuryu Shrine Singu make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Hakone-machi (Gora Park, Owakudani Kurotamago Kan, &more).

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read Tokyo online itinerary planner.

Singapore, Singapore to Tokyo is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of car and ferry.

Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Singapore in November, with highs in Tokyo at 19°C and lows at 11°C. You'll have a few hours on the 3rd (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling to Kyoto.

Osaka

Osaka ©
Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Tempozan Market Place, Nankinmachi (Kobe Chinatown), Kobe Motomachi Shopping Street, and other attractions. There's more to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

Osaka is just a stone's throw from Kyoto. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. You'll have a few hours on the 14th (Sat) to wrap things up before traveling home.
