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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Tokyo DisneySea (in Maihama), The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi) and Katabira-gawa Shinsui Ryokudo (in Yokohama). There's much more to do: discover the magic at Tokyo Disneyland, take some stellar pictures from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Skytree, and wander the streets of Odaiba.

To find where to stay, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, use the Tokyo day trip app .

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.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Fri): find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 21st (Sat): steep yourself in history at Heian Shrine, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, and then steep yourself in history at Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Kyoto itinerary maker tool .
