Have a day of magic on the 16th (Fri) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's much more to do: ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, make a trip to Meiji Jingu, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower.

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Osaka (Universal Studios Japan, Tempozan Ferris Wheel, & more). The adventure continues: get great views at Kiyomizu-dera, take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari Taisha, contemplate the long history of Heian Shrine, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Philosopher's Walk.
