Destination guide

Time travel into Tokyo

Entering the buzzing, seething, sprawling megacity of Tokyo can feel like time traveling. Overhead are neon-shimmering skyscrapers, steel-clad and cloud-piercing. At ground level, streams of people and bright lights converge on Shibuya Crossing – one of the busiest intersections in the world. But delve deeper or pick yourself Tokyo vacation rentals in more ancient corners of the town, and you'll find another, more mysterious place. You can wander the pine-shaded citadel at the Imperial Palace, spark incense in mystical Shinto shrines and taste ramen from nocturnal street stalls. It's seriously fun.

Things to do

Balancing the itinerary in Tokyo

It's easy to divide your days in Japan's capital between culture and good old fun. You could stick a trip to the Meiji Shrine, the Imperial Palace or the Mori Art Museum in the morning plans. They promise to be a medley of enthralling Shinto temples, elegant shogun court rooms and avant-garde sculptures. Then come the twirling roller coasters and leafy parks of Bunkyo, Dome City, or the fairy-tale castle turrets and shopping malls of Tokyo Disney Resort, heralding plenty of adrenaline-pumping, smile-inducing attractions for the whole crew.


Seeing the sights in Tokyo

Exploring a city as vast as Tokyo can be a daunting prospect. There are activities that can help, though. Hop-on, hop-off buses – also known as Sky Buses – will whizz you beneath cherry blossom blooms, out to Odaiba island and under the mighty Tokyo Tower, all with a multi-lingual guide to reveal tales of the metropolis. Jet-setters could take to the skies for a heli-tour, to see the UFO-like cityscape and its concealed shrines from above. After that lot, how about a trip to a local sento bathhouse to sooth the muscles with a hot spa?


Timing your Tokyo adventure

Tokyo is certainly at its most Instagram-worthy in spring – March, April, May – when the world-famous cherry blossom brings the parks to life in a pinkish hue. That's also one of the top times to come and explore this sprawling capital. You might need to book your Tokyo vacation rentals early, but you should get to enjoy mild daytime temperatures and plenty of dry weather. Summertime, from June to August, can get really hot and humid, while winter, from November to February, means lows in the 30s – just be sure to bring a coat if you're planning on coming then.

Natural features

Island beaches and misty hills in Tokyo

Japan's huge capital encompasses Pacific archipelagos and rising hills within its city limits, and has plenty to keep outdoorsy types entertained. You could bag Tokyo vacation rentals on the Izu Islands. They are hardly in the city at all, set out in the ocean with their rugged cliffs, soaring volcanic domes and dolphin-ringed waters. Going inland means hitting the Kanto region, where pine forests and bubbling hot springs emerge from the earth at Hakone. Or it means scaling Mount Odake, which has crashing waterfalls and misty hiking paths unfolding on its slopes.

How to get there

Transportation to and around Tokyo

Fly into Haneda Airport (HND), the closest airport, located 9.2 mi (14.7 km) from the city center. If you can't find a flight that works for your travel itinerary, you could book a flight to Narita Intl. Airport (NRT), which is 35.4 mi (57 km) away.
