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.
Bring the kids along to Universal Studios Japan and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. Step out of Kyoto to go to Osaka and see Osaka Castle, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Heian Shrine, don't miss a visit to Gion, and explore the historical opulence of Nijo Castle.

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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and Tokyo DisneySea. There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Tokyo Disneyland, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Skytree, ponder the world of politics at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine.

Plan my Tokyo trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by train from Kyoto to Tokyo takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. In March, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 15th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
