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.
On the 22nd (Mon), get a sense of history and politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings and then admire the natural beauty at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. On the 23rd (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: shop like a local with Ginza, explore the world behind art at Tokyo National Museum, then get curious at National Museum of Nature and Science, and finally take an in-depth tour of Edo-Tokyo Museum.

Calgary, Canada to Tokyo is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You'll lose 16 hours traveling from Calgary to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Calgary in April, with highs in Tokyo at 22°C and lows at 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can travel to Kyoto.

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.
On the 25th (Thu), take in the spiritual surroundings of Kinkaku-ji, then take a stroll through Gion, and then steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple. On the next day, explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle, steep yourself in history at Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and then contemplate the long history of Sanjusangendo Temple.
