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.
Visit Hase-dera Temple and Asakusa Shrine for their historical value. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Tsukiji Market and Umihotaru. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Mitsui Outlet Park Kisarazu (in Kisarazu), Lazona Kawasaki Plaza (in Kawasaki) and Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine (in Kamakura). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Hakone Shisseikaen, enjoy some diversion at Showa Kinen Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Diver City Tokyo Plaza, and kick back and relax at Odaiba Kaihin Koen (Odaiba Seaside Park).

Salt Lake City, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 16.5-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly. The time zone changes from Mountain Standard Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a 16 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Salt Lake City in May since evenings lows in Tokyo dip to 61°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) so you can travel to Hiroshima.

You'll discover tucked-away gems like Suo-Oshima and Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Gungendo Honten and Miyajima Omotesando Shopping Street. Get out of town with these interesting Hiroshima side-trips: Ao Island (in Ozu), Oda (Yunotsu Onsen & Kotogahama Beach) and Bay Side Beach Saka (in Saka-cho). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Hiroshima National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims, get great views at Senkoji & Senkoji Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Motoyasu River, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Mikasahama Beach.
