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.
Kids will enjoy Tokyo Disneyland and Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. Step out of Tokyo with an excursion to Lake Kawaguchi in Fujikawaguchiko-machi--about 1h 50 min away. The adventure continues: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, engage your brain at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Skytree, and take an in-depth tour of Edo-Tokyo Museum.

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 out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Gion, &more) and Nara (Todai-ji Temple & Kofuku-ji Temple). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, wander the streets of Dotombori District, and step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle.
