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.
Bring the kids along to Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Kamakura (Hase-dera Temple & Kōtoku-in) and Tokyo DisneySea (in Maihama). Have a day of magic on the 1st (Sat) at Tokyo Disneyland. There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, get engrossed in the history at Tokyo National Museum, admire the striking features of Imperial Palace, and engage your brain at National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation Miraikan.

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.
Bring the kids along to Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Higashiyama (Kiyomizu-dera Temple & Sanjusangendo Temple) and Nijo Castle (in Nakagyo). Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, take a stroll through Gion, go for a walk through Arashiyama, and shop like a local with Dotonbori.

To find other places to visit, reviews, photos, and tourist information, use the Osaka attractions planner.
