Pilgrims and aviators come to Narita, a town known during the Edo period for its temple, and now known primarily for its airport.
Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble has been added to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Tokyo Tower (in Minato), Meiji Jingu (in Shibuya) and Shinjuku (Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden & Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building). The adventure continues: stop by Tsukiji Market, admire the striking features of Tokyo Skytree, get to know the fascinating history of Imperial Palace, and have some family-friendly fun at Akiba Fukurou.

For reviews, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, read our Narita vacation trip planner.

Manila, Philippines to Narita is an approximately 9-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Manila to Narita due to the time zone difference.

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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Kuromon market, Pirates of the Dotombori, Shinsaibashi, and other attractions. Start off your visit on the 12th (Wed): step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle Park, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, get a taste of the local shopping with Kuromon market, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari Taisha, then wander the streets of Shinsaibashi, and finally take in a show at Pirates of the Dotombori. Keep things going the next day: take a stroll through Gion and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Kiyomizu-dera.
