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 JAPANiCAN - Tsukiji Outer Fish Market and Sushi Workshop, Nakamise Shopping Street (Kaminarimon) and Senso-ji Temple. There's more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Skytree.

Plan a trip to Tokyo easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Tokyo Haneda International Airport, Narita International Airport and Hyakuri Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 62°F, and evening lows to 49°F. You will leave for Kyoto on the 11th (Sun).

Kyoto ©
The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Shoju-in, Yasaka Koshin-Do, Hanamikoji Street, and other attractions. Take a break from Kyoto with a short trip to Osaka Castle in Osaka, about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: get great views at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, explore the historical opulence of Nijo-jo Castle, take in the pleasant sights at Arashiyama, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine.

For photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Kyoto tour itinerary planner.

You can take a train from Tokyo to Kyoto in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and train; or drive. In November in Kyoto, expect temperatures between 62°F during the day and 48°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
