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 off the beaten path and head to Asakusa Shrine and Fire Museum. Visit Nezu Shrine and Kencho-ji Temple for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Tokyo side-trips: Kamakura (Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine & Hokokuji Temple (Takedera Temple)). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, admire the masterpieces at Nezu Museum, wander the streets of Ueno District, and get engrossed in the history at Kanda Myojin.

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 some historical perspective at Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nijo Castle. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Tenryuji Temple and Hikone Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Koya-cho (Koyasan Danjo Garan, Koyasan Okunoin, &more) and Ise (Oharai-machi, Ise Shrine Geku, &more). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Myoshinji Temple, tour the pleasant surroundings at Nanzen-ji Temple, and contemplate the long history of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine.

To find other places to visit, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, use the Kyoto trip itinerary maker site.
