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.
Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Kamakura (Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Kōtoku-in, & more), Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka) and Tokyo DisneySea (in Maihama). Have a day of magic on the 5th (Sun) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, get to know the fascinating history of Imperial Palace, admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, and enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Skytree.

Proud of their hometown's distinct culture and dialect, many natives of Osaka describe their city as "Japan's anti-capital." An antidote to Tokyo's hectic energy, Osaka marches to the beat of its own drum, serving as the country's longtime commercial and industrial hub.

Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ryoanji Temple, and take a stroll through Gion.
