The peak season to visit Tokyo is during the late Spring and early summer season, from March to May (of special note is the Golden Week from 29 April to 5 May). It is warm and sunny, and the city is blooming with flowers and festivals alike. It would be best to book your tickets early to avoid last minute rush and inflated prices. If you’re looking for a budget option, you can visit here during mid-September and March but excluding late December and early January. It would be very cold during this time of the year, but you might still get some cheap flights and hotels.
The city is served by Narita International Airport (formerly known as New Tokyo International Airport). It handles nearly half of the country's international passenger traffic. Its 4000-metre runway shares the record for longest runway in Japan with that of the Kansai International Airport in Osaka. It is a hub for All Nippon Airways, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines, Jetstar Japan, Nippon Cargo Airlines, Peach, United Airlines and Vanilla Air. Narita was among the world’s first airports that had aligned its terminals around the three major international airline alliances. It offers a number of scheduled flights to a number of national and international destinations including Hiroshima, Osaka, Moscow, Beijing, Chicago, London, Amsterdam and a lot more. The airlines offering their services include Alitalia, Air China, Jetstar Japan, Etihad Airways and American Airlines among others. Places of Interest in Tokyo
Tokyo is the capital of Japan. It is one of the world’s most expensive cities owing to its futuristic architecture and designing. This city was largely built after the WWII mayhem and a few earthquakes, and as such it has a very small number of historical monuments still remaining. However, you can visit here for the Imperial Palace, Senso-ji Temple, museums, colourful festivals, a pulsating nightlife and Sumo wrestling.The Imperial Palace
The Imperial Palace is the numero uno attraction in the national capital. This classically beautiful palace is a stunning example of 17th century Japanese architecture and is opulence is heightened by its gardens, which offer the coveted sight of the Emperor twice a year. This palace was the focal point of all inhabitation of the city since 1457 AD after a feudal lord had built the first fortress here.Senso-ji Temple
The 7th century Senso-ji Temple is most famous shrine in Tokyo and it is dedicated to the Buddhist goddess of compassion (Kannon). Common folklore assumes that it hasn’t changed much in form and substance ever since it was first made. Also of note here are a number of colourful shops selling small household items, a 3 metre high bright red paper lantern and the beautiful temple doves.The National Museum of Tokyo
The National Museum of Tokyo (estd: 1938) has more than 100000 important works of Japanese, Chinese and Indian art and more than 100 national treasures. Central to all fanfare here are some 6th century Chinese and Japanese Buddhist sculptures, historical weapons, old paintings (from 7th-14th centuries), old traditional clothing and ceramics and pottery.
