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.
Get outdoors at Rock Garden and Mt. Takao. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Senso-ji Temple and Imperial Palace. Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Kōtoku-in (in Kamakura), Enoshima Island (in Fujisawa) and Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Tokyo National Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, stop by Akihabara, and shop like a local with Asakusa.

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

London, UK to Tokyo is an approximately 15- hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight.
