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 Ueno and Hokokuji Temple (Takedera Temple). Visiting Mt. Mitake and Mt. Kintoki will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Hakone-machi (Lalique Museum Hakone & Hakone Museum of Art), Hikawa Shrine (in Omiya) and Mitsumine Shrine (Chichibu) (in Chichibu). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Asakusa Shrine, explore the world behind art at Ota Memorial Museum of Art, trek along Kamakura Hiking Trails, and examine the collection at Fujiko F Fujio Museum.

Planning Tokyo trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Tokyo is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Jakarta to Tokyo due to the time zone difference.

The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Yahiko Shrine and Sado Legend Hall. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Imayo Tsukasa Sake Brewery and Daizen Shrine No Stage. Change things up with these side-trips from Niigata: Iide Renpo Mountain Range (in Iide-machi), Kitakata (Shingu Kumano Shrine Nagatoko & Ganjoji Temple) and Shibata (Ichishimatei, Ichishima Sake Brewery, & more). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chokokuji Temple, see the interesting displays at Nagaoka Gear Museum, sample the tasty concoctions at Obata Sake Brewery, and take an in-depth tour of Niigata Prefectural Government Memorial Hall.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Niigata trip itinerary maker site .
