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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Tokyo DisneySea, teamLab Planets TOKYO, Diver City Tokyo Plaza, and other attractions you added. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine.

For maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Tokyo trip itinerary builder tool .

Kahului, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 19 hours traveling from Kahului to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kahului in October, expect Tokyo to be a bit cooler, temps between 72°F and 60°F. You'll have a few hours on the 8th (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling to Kyoto.

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've added Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street, Pokemon Center Osaka, CUPNOODLES MUSEUM OSAKA IKEDA, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine and Kuromon Market. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Osaka Castle and take a stroll through Dotonbori.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Osaka trip itinerary website .

Osaka is very close to Kyoto. October in Osaka sees daily highs of 73°F and lows of 59°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
