In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll get in some beach time at Sharks Cove and Lanikai Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ala Moana Center and Royal Hawaiian Center. There's still lots to do: trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and browse the fresh offerings at Saturday Farmer's Market KCC.

Tokyo, Japan to Honolulu is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Japan Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -19 hour difference. Expect much warmer temperatures when traveling from Tokyo in December; daily highs in Honolulu reach 32°C and lows reach 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Kailua-Kona.
