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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Ginza. Do your shopping at Takeshita Street and Roppongi. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Odaiba and Senso-ji Temple. There's much more to do: shop like a local with Asakusa, take a stroll through Akihabara, don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, and have some family-friendly fun at Anata no Warehouse, Kawasaki.

For reviews and tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip planner .

Perth, Australia to Tokyo is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. Traveling from Perth to Tokyo, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Perth in January: high temperatures in Tokyo hover around 11°C and lows are around 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can take a train to Kyoto.
