I'm going for a 10-day trip to Japan and need to schedule it. For this question to not be specific for my case and useful to others, I'd like to know how many days is a good number to get to know Tokyo.
This question is still very dependent on how long someone would stay in Japan, so let's say, if you had 1 to 2 weeks in Japan, how long you would spend in Tokyo.
Please, take into consideration the other places in Japan and the common interests of an ordinary tourist: maybe, for a trip this long, all the time should be spent in Tokyo - or no, there are other cities that are as relevant as Tokyo in terms of culture, history or things to do. Do not consider budget and distance limitations.
