Wow..That’s the great time to visit Tokyo! You can see early-autumn leaves in Tokyo, and some peak autumn at nearby tourist spots!

In Tokyo, you can have Tokyo sightseeing, and along with that you can plan Tokyo outskirts, like:
  • -          Kawagoe (known as little-edo)
  • -          Nikko (famous for World heritage Unesco site)
  • -          Hakone
  • -          Odawara Castle
  • -          Fuji 5 lakes trip
  • -          Small and easy mountain hike on Mt. Takao
Experience Onsens (Oedo-Monogatari Onsen - foreigner friendly, overnight Hot water spring in the heart of Tokyo)

You can get the details of various passes available only for foreign visitors on JR website. Pass details: http://www.jreast.co.jp/e/pass/

Also, do not forget to use your passport for Tax-Free shopping in a number of big-brands electronic, fashion and souvenir shops.

I forgot mentioning one more great resource:

Hi...

Lots of hidden treasures but you still have to tick off the tourists bits. Shibuya to witness the crossing, the madness of Takeshita Street, Yoyogi Park.

Definately, try an Onsen. I wished I’d been to Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku but it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Dog cafe or Owl/cat/Maid...

Also, if you like nightclubbing then AgeHa is the best I’ve been to in Asia so far!!!

I found watching travel blogs on YouTube was a good guide to. So much to do but depends on your personal tastes.

Hope that helped a little.
