Tokyo

— 10 nights
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.
Step out of the city life by going to Lake Ashi (Ashinoko) and Enoshima Island. Venture out of the city with trips to Lake Kawaguchi (in Fujikawaguchiko-machi), Moroiso Shores (in Miura) and Keigashima Canyon (in Susono). Next up on the itinerary: stop by Odaiba District, get engrossed in the history at Edo-Tokyo Museum, enjoy breathtaking views from Tokyo Skytree, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Senso-ji Temple.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, read Tokyo online tour itinerary builder.

Minneapolis, USA to Tokyo is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll lose 15 hours traveling from Minneapolis to Tokyo due to the time zone difference.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sat) to allow enough time to fly to Osaka.

Osaka

— 3 nights
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.
Start off your visit on the 23rd (Sun): take a stroll through Dotombori District and then get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Japan. On the 24th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the historical opulence of Osaka Castle, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, and then find something for the whole family at SpaWorld.
