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.
When in Tokyo, make a side trip to see Tokyo DisneySea in Maihama, approximately 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, ponder the world of politics at Imperial Palace, see the interesting displays at Edo-Tokyo Museum, and take in panoramic vistas at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings.

To see ratings, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Tokyo travel planner.

Santa Cruz, Bolivia to Tokyo is an approximately 29-hour flight. Traveling from Santa Cruz to Tokyo, you'll lose 13 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Santa Cruz in March, expect Tokyo to be cooler, temps between 17°C and 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can 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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Osaka: Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine (in Fushimi), Kiyomizu-dera Temple (in Higashiyama) and Kyoto (Gion & Kinkaku-ji). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Universal Studios Japan, step into the grandiose world of Nijo Castle, and take a stroll through Dotonbori.

To find photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Osaka trip planner .

Getting from Tokyo to Osaka by train takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: fly; or drive. In March, plan for daily highs up to 16°C, and evening lows to 5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
