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.
Get outdoors at Hakone Shisseikaen and Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park). Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Senso-ji Temple and Tokyo National Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) (in Hakone-machi) and Tokyo Disneyland (in Urayasu). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum, admire the masterpieces at Ghibli Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ueno Zoo, and take a stroll through Akihabara.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Tokyo vacation builder.

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. Expect cooler temperatures when traveling from Surabaya in February; daily highs in Tokyo reach 12°C and lows reach 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Fri) 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.
Shop till you drop at Myeongdong Shopping Street and Dongdaemun Market. Do some cultural sightseeing at Cheonggyecheon Stream and National Museum of Korea. Change things up with these side-trips from Seoul: Eurwangni Beach (in Incheon) and Korean Folk Village (in Yongin). Pack the 12th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Lotte World. Spend the 15th (Thu) exploring nature at Bukhansan National Park. There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Gyeongbokgung Palace, wander the streets of Insadong, get engrossed in the history at Deoksugung, and appreciate the history behind Jongmyo Shrine.
