Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of Honolulu with an excursion to Kailua Beach Park in Kailua--about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and hike along Diamond Head State Monument.

For ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Honolulu route planner.

Tokyo, Japan to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll gain 19 hours traveling from Tokyo to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Tokyo in September; daily highs in Honolulu reach 36°C and lows reach 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
On the 3rd (Sat), enjoy the sand and surf at Kahaluu Beach, then relax in the rural setting at Heavenly Hawaiian Kona Coffee Farm, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mokuaikaua Church, and finally take a memorable tour with Tours. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: kick back and relax at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

For other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Kailua-Kona trip itinerary builder tool.

You can fly from Honolulu to Kailua-Kona in 4 hours. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in October, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
