Planning a Trip to Tokyo
Tokyo is the capital of Japan and the country's largest city. The city is a large, booming metropolis and a microcosm of life in Japan. From the latest fashions to traditional street food, the city has something to offer for everyone. With Orbitz.com, you can book flights and tours for your trip to Tokyo.
Tokyo is a mix of ancient and modern attractions. On the bustling streets, it is not uncommon to see wizened old men eating traditional noodle dishes next to stores that sell the most recent technological developments. From the cutting-edge modern art at the Roppongi Art Triangle to the traditional architecture of the Meiji Shrine, Tokyo seamlessly blends together the old and new elements of Japanese culture.
Best time to take a vacation to Tokyo
The climate in Tokyo is moderate, and the city rarely experiences true temperature extremes. If you are planning to sightsee or spend time outdoors, the best time to go is during the late spring, when temperatures average 62F and days are dry. Summers are hot and rainy, often getting above 80F. Fall is also a pleasant time to visit, with low humidity and temperatures that stay around 75F. In the winter, days are grey, and temperatures hover around 40F. When you book your trip to Tokyo on Orbitz.com, plan ahead if you plan to travel abroad during the months of March to May.
