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.
Family-friendly places like Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Skytree, and see the interesting displays at Quark Museum.

To see photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Tokyo online visit planner.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Tokyo is an approximately 11-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Japan Standard Time (JST) is 1 hour. Expect colder temperatures when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in January; daily highs in Tokyo reach °C and lows reach °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) early enough to travel 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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Universal Studios Japan and Sanjusangendo Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Osaka side-trips: Todaiji Temple Cultural Center (in Nara) and Kyoto (Nijo Castle, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Dotombori District, stop by Four-M, step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle, and have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe.

To see maps, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Osaka trip planner.

Getting from Tokyo to Osaka by train takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. In February, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Hiroshima.
