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.
Have a day of magic on the 6th (Sat) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's much more to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, discover the magic at Tokyo DisneySea, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple.

The national capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto retains much of the charm of old Japan, boasting numerous temples and shrines that seem completely untouched by the modern world.
Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Kofuku-ji Temple, &more), Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan (in Osaka) and Dotombori (in Dotombori). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, wander the streets of Gion, contemplate the long history of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.
