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.
You'll explore and learn at Tokyo National Museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Senso-ji Temple and Asakusa. There's much more to do: take a stroll through Odaiba District, make a trip to Shibuya Crossing, shop like a local with Takeshita Street, and stop by Ginza.

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.
Get some cultural insight at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Kinkaku-ji. Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Osaka Castle will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Kyoto (Kyoto National Museum, Gion, &more), Nara (Nara Park, Kofuku-ji Temple National Treasure Hall, &more) and Himeji (Koko-en, Himeji Castle, &more). Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Dotombori District and see the interesting displays at Namban Culture Center.
