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.
Appreciate the collections at Tokyo National Museum and Fukagawa Edo Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Lake Kawaguchi and Lake Ashi (Ashinoko). Step out of Tokyo to go to Hakone-machi and see The Hakone Open-Air Museum, which is approximately 2 hours away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum, stop by Odaiba District, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple.

For where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Tokyo travel route builder website.

New Delhi, India to Tokyo is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Tokyo. When traveling from New Delhi in October, plan for much colder days in Tokyo, with highs around 26°C, while nights are slightly colder with lows around 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can take a train to 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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nara Park. Museum-lovers will appreciate Kyoto Museum of Crafts and Design and Muko City Cultural Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum (in Osaka) and Nara (Nara National Museum & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center). There's much more to do: make a trip to Nijo Castle, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kinkaku-ji, explore the world behind art at Kyoto National Museum, and take a stroll through Gion.
