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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Ginza, Asakusa Shrine, Edo-Tokyo Museum, and other attractions. Family-friendly places like Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and Tokyo DisneySea will thrill your kids. And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Rikugien Garden, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Skytree, and stroll around Ueno Park.

To see where to stay, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read our Tokyo journey builder website .

Las Vegas, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 17 hours traveling from Las Vegas to Tokyo. When traveling from Las Vegas in May, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Tokyo: temperatures range from 76°F by day to 61°F at night. You'll have a few hours on the 29th (Wed) to wrap things up before traveling to Kyoto.
