San Diego
Divided into neighborhoods with distinct characters and cultural heritages, San Diego sits just north of the Mexican border and offers visitors a blend of tourist attractions, including a lively nightlife, diverse cuisine, and a thriving musical scene.
Kids will enjoy San Diego Zoo and Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Take a break from the city and head to La Jolla Shores Park and La Jolla Cove. Step out of San Diego to go to Carlsbad and see Carlsbad State Beach, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at USS Midway Museum, step off the mainland to explore Coronado Island, and pause for some photo ops at Mount Soledad.

For more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the San Diego vacation trip planner.

Tokyo, Japan to San Diego is an approximately 14-hour combination of train and flight. You'll gain 17 hours traveling from Tokyo to San Diego due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Tokyo in August, expect San Diego to be slightly colder, temps between 30°C and 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) so you can travel to San Jose.
