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 Meiji Jingu Shrine. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: The Hakone Open-Air Museum (in Hakone-machi) and Maihama (Tokyo Disneyland & Tokyo DisneySea). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Tokyo Tower, don't miss a visit to Tokyo Skytree, take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, and get engrossed in the history at Tokyo National Museum.

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.
On the 8th (Wed), see the interesting displays at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum and then find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan. On the 9th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, have some family-friendly fun at Sunset Owl Cafe, then visit Dotombori District, and finally get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan.

For maps, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Osaka trip planner.

Traveling by train from Tokyo to Osaka takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 23°C in April, and nighttime lows around 12°C. On the 10th (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
