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.
Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to Tokyo DisneySea in Maihama--about 30 minutes away. Have a day of magic on the 6th (Sat) at Tokyo Disneyland. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take a stroll through Odaiba, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sensō-ji, and examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum.

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Kyoto side-trips: Osaka (Osaka Castle, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, & more), Nara (Todai-ji Temple, Kofuku-ji Temple, & more) and Ritsuin Temple (in Otsu). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, take in the pleasant sights at Philosopher's Walk, and step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle.

For traveler tips, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read Kyoto trip planner .
