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.
Explore Tokyo's surroundings by going to Kamakura (Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine, Hase-dera Temple, &more). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Meiji Jingu Shrine, enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings, get your game on at Owl Cafe Akiba Fukurou, and make an unforgettable trip to Tokyo DisneySea.

Perth, Australia to Tokyo is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Perth to Tokyo due to the time zone difference. Expect colder temperatures when traveling from Perth in February; daily highs in Tokyo reach °C and lows reach °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Tue) so you can catch the train 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Osaka: Koya-cho (Torodo Temple, Koyasan Okunoin, &more) and Himeji (Nagoyama Reien Busharito, Koko-en, &more). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan, observe the fascinating underwater world at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum, and explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle.
