Tokyo

Tokyo ©
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 list of things to see and do now includes Shibuya 109, Ebisu Garden Place, Shibuya Cat Street, and other attractions.

Plan my Tokyo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Honolulu, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll lose 19 hours traveling from Honolulu to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Honolulu in June; daily highs in Tokyo reach °F and lows reach °F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Wed) to allow enough time to take a train to Kyoto.
