Tokyo ©
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 Pola Museum of Art and Morning Market. Appreciate the collections at Memorial Warships Mikasa and Lalique Museum Hakone. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tokyo: Morito Beach (in Hayama-machi), Daiyuzan Saijoji Temple (Doryoson) (in Minamiashigara) and Hakone-machi (The Hakone Open-Air Museum & Okada Museum of Art). The adventure continues: enjoy the sea views from Enoshima Sea Candle, hike along Ubara Risokyo, and delve into the lush surroundings at Koajiro Forest.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Tokyo trip simple and quick.

Regina, Canada to Tokyo is an approximately 22.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Japan Standard Time, which is usually a 15 hour difference.

Kyoto ©
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.
Get in touch with nature at Hayama Suzuran Gunraku and Katsuragi Highlands. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Hase-dera Temple and Ruins of Takatori Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Kyoto: Alphonse Mucha Museum (in Sakai), Sentoku-ji Temple (in Oyodo-cho) and Kashihara (Imanishike Residence & Kashihara City Imaicho Historical Town Area). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Shorinji, steep yourself in history at Anashinimasuhyozu Shrine, and make a trip to Tondabayasahi Jinai Street.
