There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower, and get engrossed in the history 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.
Head to Dotombori District and Nishijin Textile Centerfor some retail therapy. Let the collections at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum and Kyoto International Manga Museum capture your imagination. Explore Kyoto's surroundings by going to Nagoya City Science Museum (in Sakae), Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum (in Osaka) and Nagoya (Furukawa Art Museum, Tokugawa Art Museum, &more). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Gion, take an in-depth tour of Kyoto National Museum, steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine.
