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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Ome (Mitake Valley & Hayabusa Inari Shrine), Refresh Plaza Kashiwa (in Kashiwa) and Honkoji (in Ichikawa). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Kōtoku-in, engage your brain at Kawasaki Robostage, get your game on at Samurai Armor Photo Studio, and get answers to all your questions at Yokohama Port Osanbashi International Passenger Terminal.

Make your Tokyo itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Boracay, Philippines to Tokyo is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of ferry and flight. You can also do a combination of ferry, flight, and train; or do a combination of ferry, bus, and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Boracay to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. In June, Tokyo is slightly colder than Boracay - with highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Kyoto.

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Toko-ji Temple (in Higashiomi), Kongorin-ji Temple (in Aisho-cho) and Koka (Koka Medicine Museum & Kotokuji Temple). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Kyoto International Manga Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Tenryuji Temple, steep yourself in history at Yasaka Shrine, and admire the masterpieces at Hosomi Museum.

Discover how to plan a Kyoto trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Osaka

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum (in Kobe), Saho River (in Nara) and Amore Beach (in Akashi). The adventure continues: indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, steep yourself in history at Former Catherine Andersen Residence, see the interesting displays at The World Money Box Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Zentsu-ji Temple.
