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 Kamogawa Sea World and Akiya, Tateishi Coast. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Moroiso Shores (in Miura), Hakone-machi (Hakone Venetian Glass Museum, The Hakone Open-Air Museum, & more) and Tanjoji (in Kamogawa). Next up on the itinerary: head off the coast to Enoshima Island, step into the grandiose world of Odawara Castle, and kick back and relax at Nagasawa Beach.

Plan my day in Tokyo using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Doha, Qatar to Tokyo is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. The time zone changes from Arabia Standard Time (AST) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 6 hour difference. Expect colder weather when traveling from Doha in June: highs in Tokyo hover around 30°C, while lows dip to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) so you can travel to 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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kyoto: Kofuku-ji Temple (in Nara), Uji (Byodoin, Uji River, & more) and Suntory Yamazaki Distillery (in Shimamoto-cho). And it doesn't end there: try your luck at Kyoto Horse Racetrack, make a trip to Kappa Gallery, contemplate the long history of Teradaya, and examine the collection at Gekkeikan Okura Sake 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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Osaka: Sennan (Rinshoji Temple & Chokeiji Temple), Wakayama (Kimiidera Temple & Porto Europe) and Koya-cho (Koyasan Daimon, Mt. Koya, & more). It doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Tanizeno Tsuribashi.

Osaka is very close to Kyoto. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in June, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
