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.
You've added Ueno Park, National Museum of Nature and Science, Hanayashiki, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tokyo City View Observation Deck (Roppongihills) and Tokyo Dome City. Have a day of magic on the 27th (Thu) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Tokyo Tower, get to know the resident critters at Ueno Zoo, and ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace.

Singapore, Singapore to Tokyo is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Singapore to Tokyo. Expect much colder temperatures when traveling from Singapore in December; daily highs in Tokyo reach 14°C and lows reach 4°C. You'll have a few hours on the 30th (Sun) to wrap things up before traveling to Kyoto.
