Tokyo

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.
Edo-Tokyo Museum and Art Jeunesse Akihabara will appeal to museum buffs. Head to Asakusa and MUJI Yurakuchofor some retail therapy. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Yokohama Nature Sanctuary (in Yokohama) and Hayama Sangaokayama Ryokuchi (in Hayama-machi). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, stop by Ginza, take a stroll through Takeshita Street, and admire the masterpieces at Tokyo National Museum.

Doha, Qatar to Tokyo is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Doha to Tokyo, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference.

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.
Popular historic sites such as Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Nijo Castle are in your itinerary. Museum-lovers will appreciate Kyoto National Museum and Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Kyoto (Sanjusangendo Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more), Himeji Castle (in Himeji) and Nara (Nara Park & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Dotombori District, admire the masterpieces at Byodo-in Temple Museum Hoshokan, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
