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.
For shopping fun, head to Ginza or Takeshita Street. Tokyo National Museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi) and Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka). Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Odaiba, examine the collection at The Gallery of Horyuji Treasures, get to know the fascinating history of Fukagawa Edo Museum, and make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine.

For where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Tokyo day trip website .

Tehran, Iran to Tokyo is an approximately 16-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, taxi, and train. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Tehran to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Tehran in July, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Tokyo: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 27°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to travel to Osaka.

Osaka
Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.
