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.
Discover how to plan a Tokyo trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Vancouver, Canada to Tokyo is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 17 hours traveling from Vancouver to Tokyo. While traveling from Vancouver, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Tokyo, ranging from highs of 14°C to lows of 4°C. On the 22nd (Sun), you'll travel to Osaka.

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.
You've added Umeda Sky Building, Mt. Wakakusa, Kasuga Grand Shrine, and other attractions to your itinerary. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Dotombori District and Shinsaibashi-suji Shopping Street. There's more to do: take a stroll through Minami (Namba).

To see reviews, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Osaka trip itinerary maker app.

You can take a train from Tokyo to Osaka in 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or fly; or drive. In December, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 4°C. On the 25th (Wed), you're off to Kyoto.
