Pilgrims and aviators come to Narita, a town known during the Edo period for its temple, and now known primarily for its airport.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Shibuya Crossing. Venture out of the city with trips to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings (in Nishishinjuku), Senso-ji Temple (in Asakusa) and Tokyo Tower (in Shibakoen). There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, get your game on at Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou, admire the landmark architecture of Imperial Palace, and don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine.

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-suji Shopping Street, and other attractions. Start off your visit on the 12th (Wed): stroll around Osaka Castle Park, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, make a trip to Kuromon Market, then contemplate the long history of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, then don't miss a visit to Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, and finally take in a show at Pirates of the Dotombori. On the 13th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a stroll through Gion and then contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple.
