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.
Tokyo National Museum and Sensō-ji will appeal to history buffs. Head to Ginza and Kimono Mefor plenty of shopping. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Yokohama Nature Sanctuary (in Sakae), Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka) and Hakone-machi (The Hakone Open-Air Museum & Hakone Museum of Photography). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Edo-Tokyo Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Asakusa, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Ueno Zoo, and admire the landmark architecture of Tokyo Tower.

Osaka
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 Gion and Nara Park. Let the collections at Museum of Oriental Ceramics and Kyoto National Museum capture your imagination. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi). There's much more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Dotonbori, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ryoanji Temple, get engrossed in the history at Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts Fureaikan, and see the interesting displays at Todaiji Temple Cultural Center.
