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 Owl cafe Akiba Fukurou and Minato Mirai 21. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Senso-ji Temple, explore the galleries of Tokyo National Museum, and admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower.

Known nationally as an industrial heartland, Nagoya boasts a far more cosmopolitan and cultural core than its reputation would lead you to believe.
Kick off your visit on the 29th (Thu): meet the residents at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium, see the interesting displays at SCMAGLEV and Railway Park, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Atsuta Jingu Shrine, then stroll through Tsuruma Park, and finally don't miss a visit to Nagoya TV Tower. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, engage your brain at Nagoya City Science Museum, then admire the natural beauty at Nabana no Sato, and finally wander the streets of Osu Shopping Street.

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.
