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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Universal Studios Japan. For shopping fun, head to Dotombori District or Minami (Namba). Explore hidden gems such as Kasuga Grand Shrine and Sunset Owl Cafe. Explore Osaka's surroundings by going to Nara (Kofuku-ji Temple & Nigatsu-do Temple). Next up on the itinerary: get a sense of history and politics at Mint Museum, wander the streets of Midosuji Street, steep yourself in history at Osaka Castle, and examine the collection at Osaka Shiritsu Toyo Toji Museum.

For where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Osaka route planner.

Washington DC, USA to Osaka is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 14 hours traveling from Washington DC to Osaka due to the time zone difference. In April in Osaka, expect temperatures between 68°F during the day and 51°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to travel to 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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and Asakusa Shrine. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ueno District and Nezu Shrine. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tokyo: Sankeien Gardens (in Yokohama), Kamakura (Catholic Yukinosita Church, Hokokuji Temple (Takedera Temple), &more) and Kichijoji (in Musashino). The adventure continues: stop by Yanaka District, take in the spiritual surroundings of Gotokuji Temple, don't miss a visit to Chidorigafuchi, and steep yourself in history at Toshogu Shrine.

For maps, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Tokyo online trip itinerary planner.

Traveling by train from Osaka to Tokyo takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 67°F in April, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Urayasu.

A city lying on Tokyo Bay, Urayasu used to stand separate from the giant metropolis next door, but now, even though it belongs to another prefecture, it seems part of the capital.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Tokyo Disneyland as well as Tokyo DisneySea. On the 15th (Wed), buy something for everyone on your list at Ikspiari, discover the magic at Tokyo DisneySea, and then discover the magic at Tokyo Disneyland. On the 16th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a stroll around Yoshizawa Garden Gallery, stop by Bon Voyage, then stroll around Urayasu Sports Park, then buy something for everyone on your list at Umihotaru, and finally buy something for everyone on your list at MITSUI OUTLET PARK KISARAZU.

To see photos, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Urayasu trip itinerary builder tool.

Urayasu is just a short distance from Tokyo. Traveling from Tokyo in April, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Urayasu, with lows of 57°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
