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 the less-touristy side of things at Meigetsuin (Hydrangea Temple) and Hase-dera Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Tokyo: Syonandaira (Komayama Park) (in Hiratsuka), Isehara (Roben Falls & Fufusugi) and Azumayama Park (in Ninomiya-machi). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Engaku-ji Temple, take in panoramic vistas at Mt. Nokogiri Nihon-ji Temple, enjoy the sea views from Enoshima Sea Candle, and explore the world behind art at Okada Museum of Art.

For more things to do, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip itinerary planning website.

Sydney, Australia to Tokyo is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Sydney in June, with highs in Tokyo at 30°C and lows at 22°C. On the 17th (Wed), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Tempozan Ferris Wheel and Akame Shijuhachi Waterfall. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Amore Beach (in Akashi), Sakurai (Sai Shrine, Mount Miwa, &more) and Yoshino-cho (Mt. Yoshino, Yoshimizu Shrine, &more). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine, see the interesting displays at Kawasaki Good Times World, admire the landmark architecture of Tsutenkaku, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Muroji Temple.
