  3. Tokyo



Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is one of the largest cities of the world with a population of 12.64-million and is the biggest of the 47 prefectures throughout Japan.  The average temperature in Tokyo is 16°C (61°F), August being the hottest and January the coldest. There’s about 20°C difference between summer and winter. There are four distinct seasons, mild spring and fall, hot summer, and winter with a few snowfalls. It seems that the hotness in the summer is more of a problem than coldness in the winter, for most of the foreign people who come over to Tokyo. In the summer of 2004, the temperature went record high up to 42.7°C (109°F) in the middle of Tokyo (Adachi ward), and days over 30°C (86°F) continued for 40 days.


Once thought to be a city too far out of reach, Tokyo has never been more accessible. If you’re coming from somewhere far away, you will almost certainly fly into Narita Airport in the neighboring prefecture of Chiba, or into the more centrally located Haneda Airport. But air travel isn’t the only way to get to Tokyo. If you’re coming from elsewhere in Japan, you have plenty of other options: the shinkansen (bullet train) and other express trains, long-distance buses, and ferries.
