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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Edo-Tokyo Museum and Tokyo National Museum. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan and Ghibli Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Hakone-machi (Hakone Shisseikaen, The Hakone Open-Air Museum, & more), Urayasu (Tokyo DisneySea & Tokyo Disneyland) and Yokohama (Yokohama Chinatown & Yokohama Port Osanbashi International Passenger Terminal). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park), ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, wander the streets of Odaiba, and shop like a local with Ginza.

To see reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Tokyo travel planner.

Surabaya, Indonesia to Tokyo is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from West Indonesia Time (WIB) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 2 hour difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Surabaya in February, with highs in Tokyo at 12°C and lows at 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) early enough to travel to Seoul.

There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Gyeongbokgung Palace, explore the striking landscape of Bukhansan National Park, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Korea, and take in nature's colorful creations at Changdeokgung Palace.
