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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Tokyo National Museum and Odaiba District. Head to Ginza and Asakusafor some retail therapy. Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, visit Akihabara, take in nature's colorful creations at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, and make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine.

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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. Museum-lovers will appreciate Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum and Todaiji Temple Cultural Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Dotombori District (in Dotombori), Osaka (Namban Culture Center & Koji Kinutani Tenku Art Museum) and Nagoya (Nagoya Shisei Shiryokan, Tokugawa Art Museum, &more). There's much more to do: wander the streets of Gion, take an in-depth tour of Kyoto Museum of Crafts and Design, don't miss a visit to Nijo Castle, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji.
