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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Tokyo National Museum and Senso-ji Temple. Get in touch with nature at Hakone Shisseikaen and Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park). Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to The Hakone Open-Air Museum in Hakone-machi--about 1h 50 min away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to The Tsukiji Market, take a stroll through Akihabara, shop like a local with Harajuku Takeshita-dori, and examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum.

To find ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Tokyo vacation planner.

Surabaya, Indonesia to Tokyo is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Surabaya to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Surabaya in February, expect Tokyo to be much colder, temps between 12°C and 3°C. On the 14th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Seoul.

One of east Asia's major cultural and financial centers, Seoul boasts five World Heritage Sites and a huge selection of museums, temples, shrines, palaces, parks, gardens, and glass-and-steel skyscrapers.
