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.
Shop till you drop at Ginza and Takeshita Street. Let the collections at Tokyo National Museum and Edo-Tokyo Museum capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Katabira-gawa Shinsui Ryokudo (in Yokohama), Ghibli Museum Mitaka (in Mitaka) and Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) (in Hakone-machi). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Odaiba, don't miss a visit to Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, look for gifts at Kimono Me, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple.

For reviews, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Tokyo attractions planner.

Islamabad, Pakistan to Tokyo is an approximately 15- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone difference moving from Pakistan Standard Time (PKT) to Japan Standard Time (JST) is 4 hours. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Islamabad in February, with highs in Tokyo at 12°C and lows at 2°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) 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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Kyoto National Museum and Hosomi Museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine and Himeji Castle. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Kyoto (Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, &more), Hakutsuru Sake Brewery Museum (in Kobe) and Nara (Nara Park & Todaiji Temple Cultural Center). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Dotombori, admire the masterpieces at Sasakura Teppei Small Gallery, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle.
